Yes, they can be a bit messy and sloppy at times. (Best to avoid ordering them on a first date!) But I still love 'em. And so does my family.
Which is precisely why I was so excited when Paul Courtwright of The Shoreby Club chose "Smokin' Chicken Tacos with Roasted Vegetables & Cilantro Slaw" as his main recipe in my book (see page 50 in the book).
And which is precisely why I am also thrilled -- thrilled, I tell you! -- to have discovered a really tasty, premium-quality, hand-blended taco seasoning mix with a little kick that's guaranteed to wow your socks off. It's called "Cook with 2 Chicks Taco Seasoning." (Cute name, right?)
Ok, ok. In the interest of full disclosure, I feel compelled to tell you that it was developed and created by my ultra creative sister-in-law, Carlinne, and her friend, Kim. They are, in fact, the brains and talent behind the highly popular food blog called (appropriately enough) Cook with 2 Chicks, which is all about "friendship, food, and family."
They have already featured two recipe posts on their blog about how they use this seasoning. One is for Fiesta Tacos with Homemade Corn Tortillas (photo below):
And the other recipe is for Roasted Vegetable Soup (photo below):
This unique seasoning mix is a combination of Carlinne and Kim's favorite spices. And they use only the very best premium ingredients available. Literally.
The directions on the jar say to "drizzle water in 2 tablespoons of seasoning." This creates a paste that you can adjust to your liking with more or less liquid.
However, you can also just sprinkle the seasoning directly on the food you're preparing (again, to taste).
"I have used it on taco meat, beans, onions, and peppers," says Carlinne.
"I have actually also made a taco 'sauce' where I use a couple tablespoons of tomato paste and garlic, cook that, and add several shakes of the taco seasoning," she continues. "Then I add white wine or chicken stock. I serve the sauce over rice for a quick snack or as a side dish with dinner or lunch."
