Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

A spicy, casual Côtes du Rhône will match these rich tacos.

Beer Pairings

Grab an Oatmeal Stout. The dark, bitter flavor will cut through the richness of the cream sauce and beef in these tacos.

TK Table Talk:

What one piece of advice would you give to a recent college graduate?

What To Do:

1. Ground beef may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Brown Beef: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and garlic. Cook 4 minutes, or until almost browned, stirring to break up meat

3. Finish Filling: Add fajita vegetables and tamari to beef mixture. Cook 5 more minutes or until beef is browned and vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Meanwhile, Make Cheese Sauce: Place cream in a saucepan with high sides over medium-high heat. Simmer 6 minutes or until cream coats the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in cheese, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Char Tortillas: Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner or under a broiler until blackened in places on both sides. PLEASE don’t skip this step, you’ll be missing out on big flavor.

To Serve: Divide beef and pepper mixture evenly between tortillas. Drizzle evenly with cheese sauce.

Pro Tip:

A saucepan with high sides may seem too large for the amount of cream in this recipe, but as it simmers, the cream can boil over in a smaller pan.

Spice it Up!: Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce to the beef mixture to add more umami flavor.
