Grilled Cheese Tacos

Cinco de Mayo may be over, but my insatiable appetite for all things Mexican and Tex-Mex never ceases. So as a carryover, I bring you one more taco creation before I return to some more standard, All-American grilling.

Being separated by the distance between New York and Chicago, we don't see each other much, but when we do, it's often life changing. The last time he was in New York, way back in 2003, he told tales of how the Windy City was experiencing a full on Meatwave, and from that came all of this. He stopped by for a quick visit this winter with another nugget of brilliance, explaining the concept of the meatwad, leaving me once again bowing to his greatness. So without further adieu, I'm ready to drop some Meatwad my knowledge unto you.
