The fajita meat at Lily's makes for a really great dinner with minimal effort. Buy some meat, Mexican cheese, radishes and jalapeños and a bag of the fresh corn tortillas. If you want to splurge, get some tomatillos or some cactus. (The cactus alone makes for great tacos, but that's getting off point.)
Take just a few minutes at home to cook the meat on a griddle or cast iron pan -- maybe char the jalapeño and tomatillos alongside before you chop them into a rough salsa. Boom, you have easy soft tacos that are truly delicious.
Fajita meat from the Columbia market is perfect for me because I can buy a half pound of sliced meat -- as opposed to the entire skirt or flank steaks that I need to buy at Laurel Meat Market.
But I want to buy more. What else do people buy at the Lily's butcher? I basically asked this question in 2012, but I'm asking again because I know there are other cuts that a Latin butcher can deliver up. I love Rick Bayless' Mexican Everyday cookbook so I'm game for whatever you suggest.
