    Nicely done!  Cojita cheese is my favorite cheese for almost any taco.

    Are the tortillas homemade?  I would swear they look like flour tortillas.  I love corn tortillas, but rest of fam likes flour.  With those, I might trick them into eating corn.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    I could get behind a plate of those for dinner tonight. All I have planned at the moment are Sloppy Joe's...

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. A curing chamber for bacterial transformation of meats...

    Corn tortillas are my fav.  They're more authentic, healthier and have more flavor.

    There's a time and place for flour and that's limited to quesadillas and burritos, IMHO.

    Looks great, Scott!

    @Ozzie_Isaac @nolaegghead these I get at a local Tortilla factory. Fresh made daily. I found a trick. Add some oil to some water. Dip them in that before you throw them on a hot cast-iron. It's by far the best way I've found. Really makes corn tortillas even better. @SciAggie sloppy joes we get a hankering for sloppy joes around here sometimes too.

    Damn, those look great.  Question: How did you prep the tortillas?
