Ingredients

For the tacos:

  • 1 medium size yellow onion diced
  • 1 poblano pepper diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup low sodium beef stock
  • Diced tomatoes for garnish
  • Pickled jalapenos for garnish
  • Corn tortillas

For the taco seasoning mix:

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

For the slaw:

  • ½ head red cabbage finely sliced
  • ½ head napa cabbage finely sliced
  • 2-3 carrots peeled and grated
  • ½ bunch green onions finely sliced
  • ¼ cup pepitas toasted if desired
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • Zest of half a lime
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. To make the dressing, add the mayo and next 4 ingredients to a bowl along with a small pinch of salt and a couple cracks of pepper. Whisk well, adding 1-2 tablespoons of water to make the dressing pourable. Check for seasoning, you want the flavor to be a little acidic, so you may need more lime juice. Add the red cabbage and next 4 ingredients to a large bowl and keep in the fridge along with the dressing until ready to serve.
  2. Mix all the taco seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. For the tacos, pre-heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onions, poblano peppers, along with ½ teaspoon salt and a couple cracks of pepper, cook for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another 3 minutes or until the peppers have softened a little bit. Add the ground beef and season it with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a couple cracks of pepper. Use a spoon to break up the ground beef the best you can. Let cook until most of the pink color has gone away, about 4-5 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons of the taco seasoning mix and mix well. Cook for 3-4 minutes so the spices can bloom in the onion. Check for seasoning, you may need a little more salt. Add the beef stock, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for 5-8 minutes or a good amount of liquid has evaporated but the meat still looks saucy.
  3. Toast some tortillas directly over the burner flame for 10 seconds each side or until they get a little charred. Season the slaw mixture with ¼ teaspoon salt and a couple cracks of pepper. Mix the slaw with just enough dressing to coat everything thoroughly. To assemble tacos, put a layer of slaw in the tortilla (will prevent soggy tortilla), add some beef, and top that off with the tomatoes and jalapenos, or any toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
