Recipe: Taco / Burrito / Nacho Mix

| 1 Comment

Easy and quick to make!

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (or oil of choice) - less oil with ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped (or red bell pepper or combo of green and red)
  • Choose one meat:
    • 2 large skinless chicken breasts, cubed
    • 1 lb. ground beef
    • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 8 oz. La Victoria Mild Taco Sauce (or taco sauce of your choice) - Salsa can be substituted but don’t also add onion and bell pepper listed above
  • Choose one or more:
    • Tacos: 8 corn tortillas, fried in oil or steamed in microwave
    • Burritos: 8 wheat or flour tortillas, steamed in microwave
    • Nachos: Corn tortilla chips
  • Extras:
    • Pinto or black beans (refried or whole), heated
    • Cheddar cheese, shredded
    • Tomatoes, chopped
    • Black olives, sliced
    • Sour cream
    • Lettuce, chopped

In large pan on high heat, saute onion in oil until almost clear. Add bell pepper and meat and mix well. Reduce heat to medium, stir regularly, and cook until meat is 1/2 done. Add taco sauce and reduce heat to simmer. Stir regularly and simmer until meat is cooked and sauce is desired consistency.

Serve as tacos, burritos, and/or nachos with your choice of extras.

Use sed to change multiple filenames

| 1 Comment

I wanted to replace all hyphens in all filenames starting with 2003- and ending with .php. Here's how I did it using sed (no guarantees, no warranties, use at your own risk!):

  1. Backup the files!
  2. Change to the directory you want to make the changes in.
  3. Then, to make sure the right filenames will be changed, list the filenames using the following sed command (modify "2003-*.php" and the sed search and replace strings for your situation):

    for filename in 2003-*.php; do echo $filename | sed \e 's/\-/\_/g'; done

  4. When you're sure the above sed command is listing the right filenames, change it as follows (modify "2003-*.php" and the sed search and replace strings for your situation):

    for filename in 2003-*.php; do newname=`echo $filename | sed \e 's/\-/\_/g'`; mv $filename $newname; done

Note the use of the backtick character (`) (also known as backquote) which, on my keyboard, is located to the left of the "1" key. The backtick character is used in addition to the single quote character (').

[Update January 4, 2009] I totally forgot that I could have used the "rename" command instead of sed! There is control over which underscore in a filename is changed. More about renaming files using "rename".
