Chef Robert Luna and Tacos with Pickles

Malo Ground Beef and Pickle Taco

That's right. Pickles and Tacos. An abomination you say? No way Jose? I say YAY. The fantastic artist Brian Wills hipped me to this taco more than 5 years ago. I was instantly hooked! Hooked I tells ya. Now you can make it yourself at home.

I love generous chefs. The ones that don't hoard their secrets until their book comes out. I will always give anything I know about food away to anyone, any time, any place. So glad Chef Luna feels the same.

Now get to crunchin'.
