Monkey Bread

Hi Foodies! I had a sweet tooth and a craving for “Monkey Bread!” Not, just any “Monkey Bread” but my Momma’s “Monkey Bread” because “Aint No Monkeying Around” with her “Monkey Bread.” Capiche?  It was a real treat growing up and waking up in the morning to find one of these gems sitting on the counter, right out of the oven waiting on me and my sister to devour! I’m a sucker for sweets and can eat them morning, noon, and night if my guilty conscious wouldn’t chip away at me.  I was raised in the south and that’s what we did, like it was our duty. We ate sweets. Lots of sweets. Now, I have a hard time kicking the sugar out of my diet. Thanks Mom and Grandma.  

So, when I get a specific craving for something I  treat myself to it because nothing else will cure it and “Monkey Bread” was on the mind. Holy Cow, it was everything and then some! I gotta say its pretty cool having childhood memories of “Monkey Bread” then growing up and adopting the recipe into my current life.  Sharing recipes with my Mom is unexplainable. Its sort of profound how we go from being little girls playing with our “Easy Bake Ovens” to growing up and sharing recipes with our Moms.

Ingredients
  1. 1lb 80/20 Beef
  2. 9oz of Pork Chorizo
  3. 1 Packet Lawry Taco Season Mix
  4. 1/2 tbsp of Garlic Powder
  5. Dash of Salt & Pepper
  6. 2 tbsp Sriracha
  7. 1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt
  8. Hot Pepper Jack Cheese
  9. Flour Tortilla
  10. Lettuce
  11. Tomato
  12. Onion
Instructions
  1. In a bowl mix your chorizo, beef, taco seasoning, and spices. Then pound out your burgers into the shape of taco.
  2. Mix your sriracha and yogurt to make your taco sauce.
  3. Chop your lettuce, slice your tomatoes and onions.
  4. In a skillet over medium-low to medium-high heat add one chorizo beef patty at a time. I find it works better because chorizo is greasy and so is 80/20 beef. So, I wipe out my pan with a paper towel after each one I cook.
  5. Cook for several minutes. Then carefully flip and add a slice of your cheese. While the underneath is cooking your cheese is melting. Once melted lay your patty on a plate layered with paper towels to soak up any excess grease. Wipe your pan with a clean paper towel to remove grease and cook your next patty until they are all done.
  6. Then smear your tortilla with your sriracha mixture, add your chorizo cheeseburger patty, add lettuce, tomato, and onions.
  7. AND WA-LA! "Chorizo Cheeseburger Tacos!"
