Cow eye tacos

by Stephanie Chasteen on April 28, 2009

In these tough economic times, waste not, want not, right?

So, an enterprising Explainer at the Exploratorium thought well, there must be some good use for all these cow eyes we dissect on the museum floor every day.

So, yup, you guessed it.  Kudos to those crazy kids for the following recipe:

Tacos de Ojo (Eye-ball Tacos)

Makes 1 heaping taco

2 Cow Eyes (muscle and fat trimmed off)

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

2 teaspoon Salt

2 teaspoon Pepper

1 Lime

1 Corn Tortilla

Tapatio Hot Sauce

Read more over  (including the taste test) at the post on their blog.

Though you might not want to do this in your classroom… might get a few parents a tad upset.
