So I came home completely butt fuck wasted from a company Christmas party this week and I was in “Eat Everything in the Fridge” mode when I realized there really wasn’t much in the fridge. A sober person can have the patience to defrost any poultry, meat, pork or fish product in the freezer but a wasted person needs the instant gratification of something/anything edible in the stomach.
Suddenly I spot couple day old Sloppy Joe leftovers in a Tupperware container hiding stealthily behind a gallon milk jug. Awesome find! However, to my dismay, I open the bread drawer and there’s absolutely zero piece of edible bread. Stale/hard bread, green moldy bread but nothing I could throw my heated up Sloppy Joe sustenance on and demolish in record time.
Enter the next great find of the night, Soft Tortilla Wraps! Combining the two made complete drunken sense. Sloppy Joe Taquitos is something I had never heard of or seen before but desperate drunken times require desperate measures. Being a veteran of drunken food runs to 7-11 in my collegiate years at a North Philadelphia University, I knew a Taquito type food delivery device for my Sloppy Joe would satisfy my craving for not only protein but carbohydrates as well. I am not sure I have been more pleasantly surprised by an ad-hoc combination of food while in a severely inebriated state.
Sloppy Joe Taquitos are fucking delicious, plain and simple. Why wouldn’t they be?
The logic is right there. Sloppy Joe’s are delicious by itself even with no bread. Add bread and they get even better.
You can substitute bread in pretty much any sandwich situation with a Tortilla to make it a Wrap without really sacrificing much in terms of taste. In this case, using properties of mathematics I learned in High School,
If (Sandwich – Bread) + Tortilla = Delicious so does (Sloppy Joe – Bread) + Tortilla = Delicious.
If you’ve got some sloppy joes lying around with no bread but have Tortilla’s, I’d highly combining the two. Though at this point I’d recommend using Tortilla’s as much as I would bread for Sloppy Joes.
