Tacos are great when you’re partying. The greasy food soaks up maybe “one too many.” Even better, these tacos have a nice shot of caffeine. Red eyes, meet the food equivalent of hair of the dog.

Recipe Summary

8 Supersize Tacos


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add the oil, one turn of the pan. Add the beef and sausage. Cook, stirring often and breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the spices and oregano. Add the onion, chiles, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the coffee and 1/2 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 375°. Bake the taco shells on a baking sheet until warm, about 5 minutes.

  • Fill the taco shells with the cheese. Top with the meat filling, lettuce, tomatoes, pickled jalapeños, and onions.
