Let’s Taco ‘Bout It

Taco Tuesday, that is! We don’t know about you, but we hope that this is one food trend that always sticks around. Our love for taco nights will never fade and there’s just something so fun about everyone filling their own tortillas with their choice of toppings. Because let’s be real, tacos are all about the toppings, right?

Remember the Maple Bourbon Braised Beef we made last week? Chances are if you make this at home, you’ll have some leftovers unless you’re feeding a crowd. And those leftovers inspired us to re-purpose the shredded beef into a deliciously unique taco. Paired with soft, caramelized onions and crispy kale slaw we were sold after just one bite. We love the seasonal flavor and how incredibly easy these tacos are to put together. Gather some friends, make a pitcher of margaritas (Traditional or Spicy, the choice is yours) and enjoy!
