Last weekend I was fortunate enough to attend Tacolandia, courtesy of 2016′s sponsor, Tabasco. I enjoy teaming up with brands that I use in my every day life, and if you have ever eaten with me, you know how much I love hot sauce, especially Tabasco’s Chipotle Hot Sauce. It’s perfect splashed on a Ensenada-style fish taco or chorizo and eggs in the morning – the flavor pairs just right with the Mexican food in my life. I was curious to see how Tabasco would be incorporated at Tacolandia and was in awe with how Chef Ray Garcia created one of the best tacos at the festival by marinating brisket with Tabasco’s Chipotle Sauce. His savory creation sat atop a blue corn tortilla with pickled onions and micro cilantro. If you had the opportunity to devour this taco, you know how incredible it tasted. It was SO GOOD!
To my excitement, I got my hands on Chef Garcia’s recipe for his Chipotle Brisket Tacos (photographed above). Now both you and I can make it at home. Click on more… to read the full recipe.
