Recreating Jack in The Box Tacos
- michele cindy Jul 30, 2009 06:24 AM
I've used the copy cat recipes from various on line sites to create jack in the box tacos at home. They do give me a fix for my craving, however I think the recipe could be perfected. One thing the copy cats call for is Oretega Salsa, is there another sauce/salsa that more closely resembles my memory of the JITB tacos from their stores, or is this the closest you can also think of?
The recipes also call for refried beans mixed into the beef, however the JITB indgredient list has a lot of soy fillers mentioned. I'd like to nail this down. Any suggestions?
How is the overall texture of the final product? Way back when, my neighbor worked for JITB and actually made all the tortillas for their tacos. He told me they are filled and frozen, then popped in the deep fryer when ordered. I haven't had their tacos in many moons, but I'm wondering if they are still prepared that way. I also remember that the JITB tacos of my youth had sliced American cheese food instead of real cheese.
