How about a little Mexican Irish Fusion?…
Tacos and Corned Beef?…
…with a little Guinnes Dipping Sauce on the side?
“Pourquoi pas?!” I say with my best French accent.
…an interesting way to use up some of that corned beef
from yesterday’s Saint Patrick’s Day Corned Beef and Cabbage feast…
Have I peeked your interest?
Well just take a look at this following recipe…
It may seem like a strange combination of ingredients,
and I must admit I was sceptical
but as the Captain was taking his first bite,
I revieved a big ‘thumbs up’.
Finishing his 4th tacho was confirmation enough for me.
CORNED BEEF TACHOS with GUINNESS DIPPING SAUCE
2 cups shredded corned beef
6 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
several slices of pickled jalapeños
For Guinness Dipping Sauce
1 cup Guinness
1/2 Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
sea salt and pepper
For Cole Slaw
4 cups cole slaw mix
1 jalapeño, minced
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp cider vinegar
sea salt & pepper
In a small saucepan simmer Guinness until reduced to 1/3 cup.
Cool and mix Guinness reduction with rest of dipping sauce ingredients.
Heat tortillas and meat and set aside keeping warm.
Whisk together vinaigrette for cole slaw
then toss well with cole slaw vegetables.
spoon some of the cole slaw on each tortilla.
Top with a generous portion of meat,
then a sprinkling of cheese,
and finally 3 or 4 slices of jalapenos.
Before folding your tortilla, drizzle with Guinness dipping sauce.
Serve with extra sauce.
Captain says this one’s a keeper!
