A recent visit to Rusty Taco and an employee is wearing a t-shirt that reads “In queso emergency, Rusty Taco.” Love that: a play on words and the idea that queso can solve any emergency. Speaking of queso, did you hear that there is a Velveeta shortage due to “minor manufacturing challenges”? What does that mean exactly and will there be enough to make some queso compuesto for watching football playoffs and the Super Bowl?
|Pan Fried Potatoes|
- Yukon white or gold potatoes (we cook 2 for tacos for a family of 5)
- Bacon grease or olive oil
Wash potatoes and dice into bite size cubes. Cook 3 or 4 slices of bacon in a large skillet. Remove bacon and leave grease (if you cook more bacon, you may want to (carefully) wipe out some of the grease with a paper towel. Add potatoes and cook over medium heat until potatoes are brown, the outside is crispy and the inside is soft and cooked through; stir frequently to ensure all sides get crispy brown. You can substitute 2-3 T olive oil, if you prefer. Sprinkle with a dash of salt.
