  Categories: Mexican, Cheese
       Yield: 6 servings
  
            Jim Vorheis
     1/3 c  Fresh lime juice
            Sea salt to taste
     1/3 c  Finely chopped radishes
     1/4 c  Finely chopped white onion
       1    Chile peron, black seeds
            -removed and roughly
            -chopped,
            Or any hot green chile,
            -chopped with seeds
       1 tb Roughly chopped cilantro
            The tacos:
       1 c  Drained and lightly salted
            -ricotta cheese
       6    Thin 5-inch corn tortillas
       6    Toothpicks
            Safflower oil for frying
  
   Have ready a tray lined with a double thickness of paper toweling.
   
   First make the sauce.  Put the lime juice and salt into a glass bowl,
   mix in the rest of the ingredients, and leave for at least 30 minutes
   to marinate.  This should make about 1 cup.
   
   Spread 1 tablespoon of the ricotta over half of each tortilla. Fold
   over and secure with a toothpick.
   
   Put oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a large frying pan and heat. When
   hot but not smoking, add a few of the tacos and fry, turning once
   until they are a golden color and quite crisp.  Continue with the
   rest, adding oil if necessary.
   
   Drain the tacos well on paper toweling and remove as soon as they are
   cool enough to handle.  With a toothpick, ease them open and insert
   about 2 tablespoons of the sauce.  Serve immediately; they cannot
   wait.
