Chipotle & Coconut Beef Tacos

I was really excited to try this recipe! Tacos are a great, quick and easy recipe that almost everyone enjoys! The best part is that you can create a taco bar and let your whole family make their own tacos, just the way they like it! I had to try something new and a little different though since everyone already knows standard tacos. So let me know what you think!

Chipotle & Coconut Beef Tacos

Shopping List:

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

Flour Tortillas
(I used 6" whole wheat)


Shredded Lettuce

Diced Tomato

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Coconut Flakes

Guacamole (optional)

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!
