I Made This, And It Was Good! Help Me Name It!!!


The folks who visit here sometimes see concoctions I made up, and are in no cook book or Internet website... I had one I wanted to try, with familiar flavors but with a different texture I thought would be good. I will describe it, show you a photo of it- but I would like you all to make up a name as to what to call it! Here we go...
1. I took a soft flour tortilla (large and circular!) and placed on plate.
2. 1/2lb. of ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning, chili powder, cumin powder, onion powder, and garlic powder- a made into a giant thin single patty and fried until done.
3. Placed on tortilla, then covered with chopped tomato, shredded lettuce, chopped onion, sprinkled lightly with shredded Colby Jack cheese, and topped with your favorite chunky salsa.
4. Cover all above with another round flour tortilla, and covered in Colby Jack cheese and microwaved until cheese melts..
5. A splash of hot sauce on top and done... can be cut like a pizza into sections, or eaten with knife and fork!
What is my name? I NEED ONE!
Have fun with this, I look forward to your answers!

This is a tortilla burger - I had them all the time growing up since we always had tortillas but didnt always have hamburger buns - but lets get creative and call it a "Texas Calzone"

So, it's sort of a cheeseburger, quesadilla, taco, calzone . . . I like "Texas Calzone" or
"Cheeseburger Quesadilla" or "Mexican Calzone"

Sounds like a delicious dish!

Angela in Europe said...

I can't think of anything more creative than what the others said. I will just vote for the Mexican Calzone one, cos I like the idea of fusion.

buffalodick said...

Angela- Seems to be the leader so far! Fun to see the answers!

John McElveen said...

BD,

Awesome sounding, and I'd eat it regardless of the name!!!. So far all names are cool.

Mexi-Burger came to mind right away, and someone else said that too, but Mexican Calzone does have a great ring to it!

Fart Frisbee definitely describes the morning after!

Sounds like a Mexican Pot Pie!

Great stuff!

I used to make something similar to this only with more layers of tortillas and beans, rice...etc. etc.

I called it Mexican Pizza.

Why does everything you make, make my mouth water?

Thanks!
