Before I say anything about this recipe, I would like to announce the end of my comfort food bender. As good as all of the pizza and mac ‘n’ cheese has been, I am cleaning up my act. That’s not to say it won’t happen again sometime in the next few months, but for now I am going to be eating (and blogging) a bit healthier. I will be baking a bit though. For my final post of my bender, I give you these spicy, cheesy and tasty tacos.
First, I combined chorizo and beef for the base of these tacos, which makes the filling a bit more exciting. Then I added some spice with the seasonings and poblano chiles. To top it off, I made a pepper jack cheese sauce to pour over the tacos. Top them off with some lettuce and green onion and there you have it- a unique taco that will have you coming back for seconds (and more cheese sauce!).
I recently entered this Ritz cracker recipe contest recently sponsored by Guy Fieri, which caused me to look through a bunch of his recipes for inspiration. I really love his recipes because they are always banger and packed with flavors. If you are not sure who Guy is, he is the punk-rock-looking, spiked hair guy from Diners, Dives, & Drive-Ins (as well as like ten other TV shows I feel like!).
This recipe is amazing because if combines the delicious flavors of chorizo and shrimp along with lots of cheese! I am a big fan of roasting peppers/chiles. It gives them an entirely different flavor. Roasted peppers and chiles also make the perfect dish for holding your delicious recipe ideas. I tweaked Guy’s original recipe a bit, but of all the stuffed pepper recipes I have made, I can safely say this one is my favorite. I highly recommend that you try it as well!
