Here it is August and I just realized I haven’t made/posted any knock your socks off tacos since my Bahn Mi Street Tacos around Memorial Day. Well, it’s time! Time for Baja Chicken Tacos & Baja Sauce.
I don’t know if any of you guys watch Diners Drive-Ins & Dives but I swear it’s becoming an issue at my house. I might need a support group! That’s where I got the idea of Bahn Mi Street Tacos. They’re def a play on American Southern and Mexican with just a touch of Asian tossed in the mix. And just when you might think you’re bored of street tacos…this one is surprising in over the top flavor. A little crazy, even, but it just works!
Do you know what I think has never really gotten it’s due? Mexican Style Ground Beef. I think too often at home we spice up our ground beef with taco seasoning which is fine, but you don’t get that great Restaurant Style Mexican Ground Beef flavor and the taste and texture that comes with it.
Here’s a little recipe that’s probably quite a bit different than any you may have tried. It was for me, anyway. It’s Chicken Tacos with Cherry Chipotle Salsa and its a fun, play on flavors.
Unless you grew up around Mexican food, chances are your first introduction to it was probably the ground beef taco. And maybe you make them for your family – they’re fast, easy & everyone seems to love them from kids to kids at heart. I make a few different kinds of ground beef tacos, but these are our fave.
