Yet another thread about tacos....

Over the weekend I did a rack of spares that I trimmed into St Louis style. Salt and pepper only and no wrap. I did the tips along with with them to use for something later in the week.

Here is a couple pics of the St Louis ribs from Saturday

Fast forward to taco Tuesday..
Before work I got out the leftover rib tips that I had smoked alongside the ribs and cut them in half

Then I put a can of chipotle in Adobo sauce and a quart of home canned V8 style vegitable juice from the garden in the crock pot. Blended together with the stick blender.

Then put the rib tips in and set to low until I got home from work

Well I got stuck at work a little longer than expected so 12 hours later I pulled the rib tips out to shred up and remove any cartilage........well I guess they cooked long enough because I couldn't find a single piece of cartilage! It all melted away! Lol.
Here it is all shredded up and mixed in with just a little of the sauce.

Threw some tortillas on the grill and choped up some onion and cilantro.....ready to build some tacos.

And the finished product....rib tip meat,onion,cilantro,lime juice,sour cream and a little queso fresco.

Another successful taco Tuesday! The rib tips deffinatly had some heat! Ok for me but a little too much for the wife. Next time I'll use about half the amount of chipotle in Adobo sauce.

Thanks for taking a look!

Great looking tacos Travis. There’s no such thing as too many taco threads.

The v8 with the chipotles and adobo sound interesting. And you’re right those little cans pack a little bit of heat, it definitely has a way of sneaking up on you.

Like!!

Thanks xray! The V8 and Adobo worked really good. It needed something though. Like some grilled fruit...something sweet to balance it out..orange juice maybe. Or some grilled pineapple on the tacos. Definitely something im going to play with for sure

Thanks chopsaw! Yea....i guess I was thinking with a whole quart of the juice it wouldnt be too bad..lol I was wrong! A few extra beers disappeared form the fridge last night during dinner lol. Good luck with the press! Homemade tortillas are the best !

Looks good! We save Rib Tips for another meal as well. I saw a Whole can of Chipotle and Bowed Down as your a better man than me, handling the Heat. In my younger days, Chipotle Sandwiches tasted great at 3 AM Drunk and Hungry. But not now...JJ

Those are some great looking tacos! I can see Tuesday would be a good day to come visit. Love the idea using the rib tips, not sure I could get them to last long enough tho.

Thanks Ryan ! We do try and do some kind of taco just about every Tuesday. And your right its hard not to snack on left over BBQ in the fridge! Was not to bad this time because I made 26 Abts when I made the ribs so we had those leftover too. Funny how each time I would open the fridge one more ABT would come up missing lol!
