When my niece and sister came over the day, I cooked Kinder’s tri-tip last night and no one wanted to eat meat. Instead of having tri-tip and mashed potato I thought of making tacos, tri-tip sandwiches using the panini press to heat the corn tortilla and tri-tip and whatever I think of.
Beef tacos are typically made of chili powder, oregano leaves, cumin powder, onion powder, lean ground beef, and taco shells. The suggested toppings are: shredded cheddar cheese, iceberg or romaine lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, cilantro leaves, sour cream, pico de gallo sauce, and lime wedges. I did wanted to taste the beef and not add too many condiments.
I’m planning on using the panini press to warm corn tortilla and slices of tri-tip by adding simple condiments: fresh cilantro, shredded cheddar and monterey cheese, Trader Joe’s guacamole dip, and creme fraiche. This was so good that anytime I have left over meat of any kind I will try to make tacos and make different condiments that will accompany the meat. Sometimes we put too many toppings that the taste of beef gets lost…from time to time, simple is better!
Ciao for now!!!
