My name for a messy yet delicious taco on a bun. I had leftover taco meat and leftover barbecue sauce...recipes from two previous blogs. Putting them together with a sprinkling of Mexican cheese on a bun with lettuce and tomato made for one sloppy but delicious sandwich!
How to make one...
For the barbecue sauce, I used the sauce inspired by Franklin's Barbecue in Austin, Texas, as featured in my last blog: http://wp.me/p1c1Nl-qX
For the seasoned taco meat...
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 Spanish onion, finely chopped
2lbs. grass-fed ground beef
Combine all the spice ingredients in a bowl.
Saute the onions in a bit of olive oil until translucent. Add the beef and saute until cooked, mixing in the spice mixture a little at a time until you've used it all.
For the sandwich...
Take some of the taco meat and place it in a small non-stick pan and heat on medium. Squirt in as much of the barbecue sauce as you like, mixing thoroughly. Sprinkle some grated Mexican cheese on top, mixing thoroughly and letting it all melt together into one warm, gooey mess. Throw it on a bun. Add lettuce, tomato, avocado slices, whatever you like!
