Serves: 4
Taco seasoned lean ground beef, fresh pico de gallo, guacamole, and chipotle cheddar cheese on thick slices of grilled sourdough
  • For the Beef:
  • ½ pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder **see notes**
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup water (more as needed)
  • For the Pico de Gallo:
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced **see notes**
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • For the Sandwiches:
  • 8 slices thick sourdough bread
  • 4 tablespoons Wholly Guacamole
  • 4 ounces Cabot Chipotle Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • butter for the skillet
  1. Brown the ground beef. Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic and onion powders, cayenne, salt, and pepper, and stir to coat. Pour in the water and let the mixture simmer over medium heat for a few minutes, adding water to keep everything moist as needed. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. To make the pico de gallo, toss together the tomatoes, onions, peppers,garlic, and cilantro. Sprinkle with the onion and garlic powders, salt, and pepper. Pour the vinegar and oil over everything and toss.
  3. Heat a medium to large skillet. Spread guacamole on one slice of bread for each sandwich. On the other slice layer cheese, taco beef, more cheese, and pico. Place the slice with the guacamole on top.
  4. Butter the skillet and add the sandwich. Grill until golden and toasty. Flip to toast the second side. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Serve hot.
I always make my own taco seasoning, but if you do not have access to a large spice selection you can certainly use a package of taco seasoning (adjust the amount according to package instructions).
You can also use store-bought chunky salsa in place of the pico, but fresh is always best!
