Weekend Cook and Tell: Atypical Tacos

Welcome to the Weekend Cook and Tell. Every Wednesday we page through the food sections of various national newspapers to create a weekend cooking project. We hope you'll cook along with us and share your experiences, recipes, and photos here.

This week John T. Edge wrote a wonderful article all about the unlikely marriage of Korean barbecue and Mexican food that has become nothing short of a coast to coast Korean taco explosion. The article got me thinking: Korean and Mexican work so well together, why not try other Mexican mash-ups?

For this week's challenge we want all of you to fill a tortilla in an nontraditional ingredients, and I'm not talking about a chicken caesar wrap. The possibilities are virtually endless— spicy Italian sausage and broccoli rabe, char siu, barbecued brisket tacos with cole slaw? Korean meets Mexican might have sounded pretty outlandish, what are the craziest corn tortilla combos that you can come up with?

Show us photos of your creations on Photograzing (make sure to include "Cook and Tell" in your submission title), and tell us about your recipes here! If you'd like to blog the experience, please leave a link in the comments below. We'll post a round-up of your frankentacos next Wednesday.
