A Taco That Walks? Genius!

2 Feb

If I was stranded on a desert island and could have one food,  it would be tacos!  When I saw this idea on the blog, Picky Palate. I knew I had to share with you guys! This is a super fun idea for Super Bowl Sunday!

Walking Tacos

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

6-8 little sweet peppers or 1 green and 1 red bell pepper, chopped

4 cloves fresh garlic, minced

1 lb lean ground beef

Pinch of kosher salt and black pepper

2 cans diced tomatoes

1 Cup Herdez Salsa or your favorite salsa

1 small can tomato paste

1 Cup warm water

3 cans of beans, drained (I used black, pinto and red kidney)

1 can black olives sliced

2 Tablespoons chili powder

1 Tablespoon ground cumin

1 Tablespoon hot sauce, Tabasco

1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice

Pinch of Kosher salt, fresh cracked black pepper and Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley (to taste)

1/2 Cup fresh chopped cilantro

Bags of Fritos

Shredded cheddar cheese

Sour cream

Jalapenos, or green onions

1. Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Saute onion and peppers for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add ground beef, salt and pepper. Cook until browned. Drain if needed. I usually don’t need to for the lean beef. Pour in tomatoes, salsa, tomato paste then stir to combine. Add 1 Cup warm water to thin out slightly then add in beans, olives, chili powder, cumin, hot sauce, lime juice, salt, pepper and garlic salt. I start with just a pinch of salt then keep tasting until it’s to my liking. Add chopped cilantro and reduce heat to low to simmer until ready to serve.

2. Open bags of fritos. Spoon in chili, cheese, sour cream and jalapenos. Stick a fork in it and eat!!
