ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Sales from Mission Taco Joint’s new seasonal taco will go to a non-profit that serves veterans and those affected by human trafficking.
Through Jan. 31, the restaurant will be offering the El Chaparrito at all locations for $3.99. The taco features shredded short rib salpicon, a traditional Mexican method of cooking that involves slow cooking and shredding the meat before adding olives and vinegar. It will be topped with queso fresco, a grilled onion-radish salsita with serrano peppers, cilantro and lime and served on a housemade flour tortilla.
The proceeds from each El Chaparrito taco sale will go to the E3 Ranch Foundation.
