My tribute to the food truck revolution is a Taco Truck Burger for the Oakland Raiders, since Oakland is one of the early pioneers of Food Truck culture.  My personal creation is a seared chorizo and beef patty wrapped, burrito-style, in a flour tortilla with avocado, cheese and pico de Gallo.  

Ingredients

  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • ½ pound of ground beef
  • Chorizo
  • Cheese 
  • Avocado
  • Pico de Gallo (or chunky salsa)
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Olive oil

Directions

  1. Add a tablespoon of chopped chorizo to the ground beef and mix with your hands.
  2. Form the meat into a dimpled patty.
  3. Sear the patty in a heated, lightly oiled pan over medium-high heat, for 2-3 minutes on each side.  
  4. Season patty lightly with salt and pepper.
  5. Lay out a fresh flour tortilla and sprinkle cheddar on it toward the center.
  6. When burger is almost cooked, remove from pan and place it on the flour tortilla.
  7. Add more cheese to the burger.
  8. Top with Pico de Gallo or chunky salsa.
  9. Add sliced avocado or guacamole.
  10. Wrap tortilla around the ingredients, and cook in oiled pan over medium-high heat until tortilla is browned on both sides.
  11. Turn off the heat.
  12. Slice sandwich diagonally.  

Serving suggestion:  Eat while walking.  Now that's what I call Street Food!
