Feta & Balsamic Steak Taco

I really should be cleaning right now, but instead, I am dreaming up new ideas for taco recipes. At this point, the scent of tacos may be ingrained into the walls of my home. Perhaps that is why I wake up in the middle of the night craving tacos? The scent is so powerful that I think I am waking up to a delicious taco meal. Sadly, that has yet to happen. However, when I’m not dreaming of tacos, I am testing out and photographing new taco recipes.

One of the creations I made were these amazing Feta & Balsamic Steak Tacos. My family may be tired of eating so many tacos this month, but this recipe is such a unique deviation from normal tacos, that I don’t think they quite minded. I’ve given up on my husband being a taco fan, but since my son’s taste buds are still developing, I’m holding out hope that he’ll be a taco super-fan like me!

 I could honestly eat about 10 of these tacos without even thinking about it. I did add in some spring mix lettuce, so that make’s it healthy, right? This recipe is so easy to make! If you’re looking for a light recipe that packs a lot of flavor into each bite, this is it. I used shaved beef, however, steakums would be a good substitute. The cream cheese and honey spread balances out the acidity from the balsamic and the drizzle of lemon adds another delightful layer of refreshing goodness. I added some chili powder to the shell to take the shell from plain jane to WOW!

 Speaking of the shell, that was the hardest part of the recipe. Getting the shell to fry and shape just right was a little difficult. I did find this taco press on Amazon that should alleviate those issues. It definitely looks like a worthy investment, especially if you’re a taco addict like me!
If I were you, I’d run, not walk, to your nearest grocery store and scoop up the ingredient to add this perfect Feta and Balsamic Steak Taco recipe to your weekend meal plan.

Smoky Ranchero Chicken Tacos

If you are like me and love tacos, then you should add these Smoky Ranchero Chicken Tacos to your grocery list this week. You are going to love how simple they are to make. I have been munching on these all week and I’m still not over them. Of course, you know I have been crushing on all kinds of tacos this month. If you caught me last week you witnessed my Honey Battered Chicken Tacos, weren’t they delish?! It’s hard to believe we are half way through taco month…

I have to admit, I’m going to be kind of sad when taco month is over. I’ve been having too much fun listening to Ricky Martin and eating tacos. I’m pretty sure my neighbor has overheard me singing Livin’ La Vida Loca in the shower a time or two this month. I’m certain she’s used to it by now. I think I broke her in back at Christmas time by singing Dean Marin’s it’s a Marshmallow world at the top of my lungs. I bring her food so I think that should make up for all the singing, at least that’s how I justify it.

It’s not her fault she moved in next to a fruitcake like me. I tried to be on my best behavior for a month or so, but eventually, the real me came out. Now I’m running around the yard swatting wasps with my new tennis racket bug zapper in my pajamas and she doesn’t even bat an eyelash. I guess it’s the norm now, “oh, that’s just Emily”. Hey, to each his own, am I right?

Honey Battered Chicken Tacos 

Hola! Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo so what better month to celebrate tacos then May?! I’m starting the month off with these Honey battered Chicken Tacos. I know it sounds weird, but trust me, they’re delicious! This recipe actually came from my mom, I too, thought it sounded a little strange until I tried them. One bite had me thinking I was Ricky Martin and Livin’ La Vida Loca. Except my lips were more of an avocado green than a devil red.

Reality did eventually set in. I realized that I wasn’t Ricky Martin and moving my hips that way should be outlawed… At least in my home. You, however, are free to move your hips anyway you’d like as long as it doesn’t get you arrested or send you to the ER. If you choose to move your hips in these such ways please remember I do have a disclosure and you are eating at your own risk.

Well, now that you’ve been warned and I’ve exposed my age by referencing Ricky Martin, let’s talk a little more about these tacos. Are you looking for a quick, foolproof meal for those busy summer nights? Well, this is it! If you can cook chicken tenders in the oven and do a little slicing and dicing then making these delicioso Honey Battered Chicken Taco’s is not out of reach for you. When the bold flavors from the black bean salsa fuse with the sweetness of the chicken your taste buds will be doing a dance all of their own. So, let’s not make dinner harder then it has to be this summer! Do yourself, and your family a favor and add these ingredients to your grocery list this week. Your taste buds will thank you 😉
