If Chipotle ever closed…

It hurts to even type that title. These tacos aren’t a comparable alternative to the food of the gods, but sometimes it’s good to make your own food.

Tonight, I headed to my buddy’s condo to take bachelor basics on the road.

He had ground turkey and shares a penchant for food from south of the border. He stopped at the store and picked up the other mex-essentials: onion, green pepper, chipotle peppers, queso, sour cream and tortillas.

Here are the pictorial highlights!

Chop green pepper.

Brown the ground turkey. Add some flavor. I added 1 chopped chipotle pepper, 2 tsps of the adobo sauce and some shots of the Chipotle Tabasco. After that cooked for a while, dust in some cumin.

I added about a cup of water to make a taco sauce. In hindsight, this wasn’t needed. It made the filling mixture a little wet.

Sautee a bit of chopped onion in olive oil, then add the can of beans to warm them up. We also added a chopped chipotle pepper in here too. Who really needs intestinal lining anyway?

Plate it up on a tortilla, adding lettuce, sour cream and cheese. FIESTA!
