Author Kevin Hearne came to San Diego for ComicCon. We baited him into the Lair of Døøm with tacos and Mexican corn. He couldn’t resist, then we got him on the mic to talk about his Iron Druid series.

My favorite taco recipe:
1. Drive to Taco Bell
2. Order soft tacos
Ground beef browned
A bit of chilli powder
Tacos in liquid form, what could be better (or easier)?!
1 large onion
1-1/2 pounds ground beef or pork (or mix)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 can tomato sauce
1 can whole kernel corn
1 packet taco seasoning
1 small container of sour cream
1 small bag of taco chips
Chop onion, then brown in frying pan. Add ground meat and cook until browned. Open the cans of tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce and corn, but do not drain them. At the same time, in a large pot, add the cans of veggies and the packet of taco seasoning and bring to slow boil. When all browned, add in the ground meat and onions, cover and let boil over low heat for about 5 minutes. Serve in large bowl. Top with a large dollop of sour cream, cover generously with grated cheddar cheese and a handful of taco chips.
2-3 lb flank steak
The juice of 5 limes
3 Tbsp minced garlic
As much cilantro as you want chopped up stems on or off doesn’t matter
Salt and pepper
2 shots of silver tequila
Pico de gallo
Put the steak, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, 1 shot of tequila, salt and pepper in a plastic bag and put in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Take the other shot of tequila because you can’t pour a shot without taking one.
Retrieve your beautiful marinated steak out of the fridge and turn your grill all the way up. I mean all the way up. As hot as the sun if you can. Grill it like the Neolithic person your ape brain wants you to be. Let rest for at least 5 mins, I know you want to tear into it but don’t, this makes it more juicy later. Slice. Warm up corn tortillas (i shouldn’t have to tell you these steps). Place meat on tortilla like a proper Mexican (i am one so I know how). Place Pico on top and enjoy. Hot sauce like tapatio is a good addition, never put tabasco sauce on a taco and we can be friends forever.
Taco Stuffed Shells
1lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 4 once package cream cheese
12 large pasta shells
1 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 cup Monterey jack cheese (shredded)
1 ½ cups tortilla chips (crushed)
3 green onions (chopped)
1 cup sour cream
Step 1: In a fry pan cook ground beef and add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Add cream cheese cover and simmer until cheese is melted. Blend well. Set aside and allow to fully cool. While burger is cooking cook the pasta shells, drain and toss well with butter.
Step 2: Pour salsa in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Step 3: Stuff each shell with the meat mixture. Place the stuffed shells in the baking dish and cover the tops of the shells with taco sauce.
Step 4: Cover and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Step 5: After 30 minutes, uncover, and sprinkle crushed chips and shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses on top. Cook for about 15 more minutes. Serve with sour cream, additional salsa, black olives or any other taco topping.
“Hey, Sig, what’s up with the old white dead dude at the top of this page?”
Well, Pilgrim’, we’re making some changes in these here parts. We’re easing up on something that has served us well for a decade so […]
I love feeling like I get to know you through all the social media, podcasting, etc…, but at the heart of it all, you’re an author & I follow you because I love your work. More work/stories=happy author/happy reader. Thanks for filling us in on what’s changing.
Robin: I don’t think I’ll vanish from social media existence, but I do need to get more focus on the primary gig.
I’ve been following your work and liesneing to your stories for close to a decade now and I feel I can say I’m proud of you. You’ve expanded and grown as an author is many ways. I was there buying books for the other times you were shooting for the NYT #1. I was very happy to see you grab that title again. I look forward to reading your coutinued works for years to comes. If you right it they will come and I think you’ve made the right choice for your career and your fans. Thanks for being an awesome guy.
Right on, Scott & A! Bring the changes; we’ll spread the Stank!
The Crypt is coming…
Barb: Same thing happened to me in 2005. I worked for an audio production company that did “talk radio programs” for Fortune 500 companies (if you have a company with 20k employees, that’s like trying to communicate with a small city). I told them podcasting was going to be this giant thing and they needed to get in on it early. They saw it only as a “communication medium” and completely ignored it, missing an opportunity to develop themselves as personalities (something they were eager to do). Didn’t matter, though, I used my research to start podcasting books, and the opportunity panned out well for me.

A huge thank you for all that you guys have done for us at Separation of Sanity! As junkies having Scott drop some evil specifically for our latest release “The Crucible” was amazing. Scott killed his tracks. The “Bag of Blood track was so damn cool and sinister we didn’t want to cut it at all… Instead we wrote music specifically for it and made…[Read more]
In the last episode, tragedy and blood. Several Birthday Children are dead, as are several Springers, all killed at the hands of Matilda and the grownups. O’Malley is missing and might be dead. Barkah is badly h […]
