Chipotle & Coconut Beef Tacos
2 lbs Lean Ground Beef
(I used 90/10)
2 pkts taco seasoning
1 7oz can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
1 1/2 C Water
2 tsp Minced Onion
(I used 6" whole wheat)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1. Begin browning ground beef in a skillet over med-high heat. Add 1/2 can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (you can use the whole can if you don't mind spicy. We really liked using the whole can!). Also add minced onion.
2. When you can see no more pink, add taco seasoning and water. Reduce heat to med-low and allow meat to simmer (approx 10 mins). When meat and sauce have thickened, remove from heat. I removed the whole chipotle peppers at this point since they can be really spicy and difficult to eat.
3. Warm tortillas in microwave and set up your taco bar. A friend of mine tuned me in to using coconut flakes with tacos and Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm it gives it this awesome sweet kick contrasting the spicy chipotle peppers!
4. Fix you tacos just how you like them and, Enjoy!
