This week: Caramelos from Mickey's Hot Dogs
|It may not look like much, but there's some seriously tasty ingredients within that crispy tortilla.|
(sink your teeth into all the spicy details after the jump)
|The home of the caramelo: BK's in Tucson.|
The caramelo's tortillas are crispy and well buttered, stuffed with well-seasoned chopped carne asada and lots, and lots, of melty white queso. If you like quesadillas, you will like their unfolded brethren, the caramelo. Although they're just as good solo, a bit of salsa never hurts. Add some pico de gallo or pickled red onions inside the caramelo, and drizzle a bit of avocado or red sauce on top. Caramelos never tasted so good.
Bring a bit of México to your kitchen: Heat a pan. Butter two tortillas. Slap some carne and cheese in between those two tortillas and lay it butter side down in the pan. In mere minutes you have an ooey, gooey, warm and toasty tortilla treat. Enjoy!
