    Big Butt - Check
    Onions - Check X 2
    Taco Seasoning 1pkg per pound - Check X 6
    Queso Fresco - Check
    Jalapenos - Check X 2[​IMG]

    Caramelize onions


    Cube you butt and freeze then grind


    blend the 2 types taco seasoning

    Add Onions, taco seasoning and Jalapenos to meat


    Taste Test - Amazing!
    let sit in fridge over night ... also soak your casings





    Dinner will be real good tonight
  2. Interesting concept. We love tacos around here but I never considered making them with pork. Your links look very good so I may have to give this one a try....or at least a close variation of it.

    I didn't see cure #1 mentioned, I'm guessing these are fresh sausages?

    I was thinking of chopping up some links and mixing into Goya yellow rice...

    But I could also see this in a quesadilla

    Thanks for all the likes and comments. This came to me while stuck in rush hour traffic.

    Oh man that just made me think of doing a Tex-Mex meatloaf!!!!
    I would serve it with a side of beans and rice and have salsa to pour over all of it!

    I'm thinking you just do a normal meatloaf but make sure you have cilantro, cumin, and chili powder in the seasoning.
    Instead of doing bell peppers use de-seeded and de-veined chopped jalapenos and add cheese to the meatloaf.
    Finally instead of using bread crumbs or oatmeal (my meatloaf binder) use broken up tortilla chips!!!

    Oh and obviously smoke it with Mesquite wood (100% Mesquite Lumberjack pellets in my case).

    Wow the cogs are spinning in my head lol.:D
