Today, Marshall Scott Owens (@WestTX_BBQ on Twitter) drops a guest post on the Taco Trail. The Lubbock resident is a financial adviser at a Fortune 500 company. More importantly, he likes “BBQ, tacos, burgers, and brew,” and, he says, “If college football was a food I would eat as much as I could.” You can read Owens’ guest post on Full Custom Gospel BBQ here.

With the holidays coming up it might seem like time for a taco break, but they still make for easy meals no matter the time of year.
If our Spanish is right (and there’s a good chance it isn’t) we’re talking about sweet potatoes. What says holidays better than this tasty, starchy treat? In most families, you’ll get this holiday dish all sugared up and covered with marshmallows. You can stick that gooey mess into a corn tortilla shell if you want, but we’d rather mix it up a little bit. Our version has a kick and includes a nice corn salsa, to boot. Continue reading →
