Souped Up Taco Kit

Recommended Posts

The wife bought one of those Old El Paso tacos kits and a lb of ground beef.  So naturally, I stepped in...  I cooked the ground beef with the little spice packet included, but did it on the Akorn and may have added a few things.

Then threw some poblanos on and roared over direct heat.

I peeled the the peppers like you would a roasted pepper and sliced.

Prior to the cook I did a quick pickling of some red onion with apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, sugar, salt, all spice, and some crushed pepper flakes.  

 

Subbed out the shells they included in the kit for some corn tortillas.  My wife ended up preparing her tacos with the kit and proceeded to eat mine... go figure!

 

Ground beef, roasted poblano strips, pickled red onion, queso fresco, and cilantro.

Great looking tacos.

 

I use the Old El Passo seasoning mix all the time for basic tacos. I was able to find a jar of it so I don't have to buy the kits or packets.
