Instead of bland supermarket-style hamburger buns, this blissful marriage of heat-and-sweet languishes on a golden wedge of cornbread.
2 tablespoons olive oil
Oso Sassy Pickled Onions (recipe follows)
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced Oso Sweet Onion and chile and cook, stirring, until soft. Increase heat to medium-high and add beef. Season with chili powder, cumin, and salt. Cook, stirring and breaking beef into small chunks, until no longer pink. Stir in the tomatoes with chilies and the ketchup. Cook, stirring occasionally, until juices have thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cilantro.
Ladle beef mixture over cornbread. Mound Oso Sassy Pickled Onions on top. Serve at once.
