DIY Taco Cones

These unique tacos are the perfect way to make taco night quick and portable! They can even be prepped ahead! Such a creative, fun twist on traditional tacos – and they’re great for taco bar parties and tailgates, too!

Another terrific thing about them is how nutritious they are – lots of healthy upgrades!

For one thing, we swapped out a more traditional tortilla for a Flatout, which is loaded with protein and fiber-rich whole grains.

Then, there’s the taco meat itself. We recommend using the very leanest ground beef you can find, or if you prefer, you can use very lean ground turkey.

Plus, the taco meat has lots of nutritious vegetables mixed in: garlic and plenty of onions, black beans, corn, and a jar of lycopene-rich salsa.

And that’s before you even begin layering in the toppings. Be sure to include plenty of fresh veggies to finish these off – maybe diced tomatoes and thinly sliced romaine lettuce, for starters.

Notice that this recipe is intended to be adjustable. Precisely how many cones you’ll want to make and how far you can stretch the taco meat will depend on a variety of factors, including how tightly you wrap the cones, how many toppings you include along with the taco meat, and how high you pile on the toppings (hint: for mess-free portability, don’t pile them too high).

No matter how you make them, these are sure to be a hit! Taco night, reinvented … portable, more fun, and healthier than ever!

Sichuan Burger

There’s few things more satisfying than the hamburger, can I get an amen? I like ’em any which way, unlike hot dogs, which I only like one way. The true way. But a hamburger can go all over the place, in my opinion.

Anyways, a few months ago, I needed sichuan peppercorns for a recipe for twice cooked pork I wanted to try out at home, so I ordered a little bag online. Also known as Chinese coriander, these aren’t peppercorns, but the husks of the bud on a prickly ash shrub. Sichuan peppercorns make your tongue tingle, and your mouth may even get a little numb after eating them for awhile. If this sounds alarming to you, don’t worry, it goes away quickly. Some theories are that the numbing sensation counteracts the spicy chilis that usually go hand in hand when making Sichuan cuisine. By themselves, they’re not spicy, just really fragrant and, coincidentally, a brilliant addition to a grilled hamburger.

You see, the little bag wasn’t so small, when it arrived in the mail, and a girl can only make twice cooked pork so many times. Here I was with a bunch of peppercorns, so I started adding them to things I’d cook. This flatbread burger is by far the most successful use for them.

My better half is a tremendously talented griller, as I’ve mentioned before, and he was more than happy to act the guinea pig for this experiment. It was his idea to add the grilled scallions, which get smoky and mild when cooked on the coals. They were perfect tucked up inside flatbread.

If you have easy access to Sichuan peppercorns, (thank you internet!) by all means, try this flatbread recipe. Add a few more crushed up on top of the burger if you’re loving the taste!

By the way, this recipe works just as well with lamb….try it this weekend for the burger lover in your life!
