Taco meat is turned into a delicious and hearty sandwich for a quick and tasty weeknight meal. Taco Sloppy Joes will be your new favorite simple supper.
So, I’ve been on this joes kick lately. Pizza joes, cheesesteak joes, you name it. If it’s made with ground meat, I’m trying to turn it into a joe sammy. That’s how these were created. Tacos. Ground meat, lettuce, cheese, onions. Bun? Why not??
Yes, they were messy. Yes, they were delicious. And you can bet we’re having these again! They whipped up in no time, were super tasty, and really did satisfy the taco joe hankering I was having when I first thought of these.
Don’t let the photos fool you. My natural light is dwindling due to this lovely thing called daylight savings. Honestly. What daylight is it saving? I’m not seeing it! It’s dark when I leave and dark when I get home. Where’s the daylight? Is it being saved in a bank? Another country? Another hemisphere? Where??
Can ya tell I love cheese? It’s covered in it. Who doesn’t love cheese? Especially with tacos. That’s like oatmeal with cinnamon, roast beef without gravy. They just have to be together!
Yup. Today’s a short post. S and I are headed to the antiques show that Dad is set up for. I can’t wait to see what he’s got on his table this time!!
