By “bastard taco” I mean stuff rolled up in a tortilla that makes absolutely no pretense at being authentic Mexican or Tex-Mex.
Dinner tonight was a taco lightly brushed with butter and garlic powder with mushrooms, bell pepper, and mozzarella cheese parked in the microwave for 40 seconds to melt the cheese. Three of them, actually, and a bottle of beer.
I’m also thinking of doing an olive oil and garlic seasoned tortilla with feta, mushrooms, spinach, and nuts of some sort given the same treatment.
Of course, there are a bajillion variations - caesar salad wrapped up in a tortilla, tuna or chicken salad in a tortilla, a variant that’s essentially a turkey (or other) sandwich rolled up in a tortilla instead of between slices of bread, and so forth.
Anyone else do this? Any other ideas?
