I feel my temperature rising
It's burning through to my soul
Girl, girl, girl
You gonna set me on fire
My brain is flaming
I don't know which way to go
Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love
I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love...
Here's a-hunk-a-hunk-a-burning love Elvis singing this song back in '72....
Bruce Springsteen, performing a pretty darn good version too.
And here's something just as
HOT BURNING HEAT
HOLY GUACAMOLE CALL 911...NOW!!!!!!
Oh, it looks innocent enough,
BUT IT ISN'T!!! TRUST ME ON THIS!!!
DO NOT FEED THIS TO YOUR CHILDREN!!
THE HEAT FACTOR IS TOO HIGH!!!
it's so entirely different than any taco meat you've had!
Here's the recipe...printable recipe is at the end of the post.
What makes this so hot??? I have no idea!!
Blazin' Short Rib Tacos with Roasted Peppers
Aaron McCargo Jr. from the Food Network show Big Daddy’s House Serves: 4 servings
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil...Angie’s note: I used olive oil
4 (6-ounce) boneless short ribs
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1 onion, sliced
3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 chipotles, minced
1/2 cup hot salsa
1 quart beef stock
1 jar fire roasted whole red peppers, drained and patted dry
1 jar fire roasted whole yellow peppers, drained and patted dry
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
4 to 6 flour tortillas
2 limes, cut in wedges, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add the oil. Season the short ribs with salt and pepper, to taste. Add short ribs to pan, 1 at a time, and sear on all sides until nicely browned. Remove them from the pan to a platter.
In the same Dutch oven, over medium-high heat, add the onions. Cook until the onions are well caramelized, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and mix well. Stir in the chipotles, salsa, stock and salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil, then add the short ribs and cover. Put the pot in the oven and braise the ribs until the meat is fork tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Remove the ribs from the oven and shred the meat with 2 forks. Slice the peppers into thin strips and put them in a bowl along with the cilantro. Warm the tortillas in the oven. Assemble the fajitas with the desired amount of short rib meat and top with peppers.
Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
Maybe it's these Chipotle Peppers that made the heat index so high.
which by the way is made locally in Wellman, Ia and is fantastic!
Now you can turn down the heat factor for kids maybe by using mild salsa for the HOT salsa and green chilis for the CHIPOTLE chilis instead.
I just googled chipotles and see that chipotles are actually dried jalapenos...NO WONDER!!!
here's the fixins for these unique tacos made with beef short ribs.
Oh that's right, season these babies up with salt and pepper.
Sear these suckers up on all sides now. Ssssiizzzzzzzllle...Ouch!

Seriously, this must stop. I AM civilized.
For the most part.
Except I always forget to send thank you notes.
But other than my thank you note failings, I'm mostly civilized.

this is one of Aaron McCargo's recipe.
Aaron is with
Big Daddy's House
on Food Network.
Remember when I featured his crazy good Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos here
for the Super Bowl?
Now I made these tacos about six weeks ago and when I showed Tim the pictures again just now on Sunday night, he got this far away look in his eyes and I swear his mouth started watering.
Oh gosh, here's the printable recipe...now if you are like my MOTHER who has an I-pad, you won't be able to see this printable recipe, cause it's an embedded document and for Pete's sake, let's not let a fancy I-pad open a taco recipe.
Ma, get a laptop or desktop too!
Okay, in closing here, playing on the theme of
Burning Love and your future burning mouth from this recipe...hehehe :)...here's the 70's video from

P.S. Sorry you can't see this video Ma, it's so 70's awesomeness!
In closing...did anyone see that big full moon
And then about a month ago, we had a storm roll in and
roll out very quickly...

You make me blush. Stop it now!
