Whenever Chris and I have no plans on Mondays, we make Tex-Mex food and margaritas! As I posted, we had our friend over for dinner last Monday, but we were free the next night, so we decided to postpone our Tex-Mex food a day later this week. Usually, I make some pretty basic quesadillas, and then lots of dips to go along. This week, I was inspired by Chipotle to try out making barbacoa (spicy beef) tacos! I found this recipe for slow cooker barbacoa, and let me tell you… it was wonderful coming home after a long day of work to the smell of this cooking!
To be honest, it probably didn’t turn out as spicy as I would have liked… but we couldn’t really tell in the mixture of ingredients once the tacos were assembled. We wrapped the shredded barbacoa, grated pepper jack cheese, and chopped peppers in soft tortillas (wheat).
On the table, we had spicy salsa and homemade guacamole to add in. We also always make our margaritas from scratch! At some point, I will post the easy recipes for homemade guac and homemade margs.
