Taco night happens quite a bit at my house because it’s such a favorite with my boys. One of the things I like doing for our usual meals is to switch things up a bit by incorporating different flavors to keep dinner interesting. Rather than the usual taco seasoning, I gave my family a twist to our taco night with these BBQ Beef & Chorizo Tacos. Beef and chorizo simmer in a sweet tangy sauce, followed by a finishing sauce to offer a sweet, smoky flavor stuffed into tacos…
So what are Kraft Recipe Makers? They are a new line of Kraft simmering sauces to help make some delicious meals. There are nine different sauce products, and each package has two complementary, ready-to-go sauces that create a dish with layers of flavor. When I looked at the line of sauces they offer, I soon noticed that many of them are sauces that are complex or usually take hours of cooking time to prepare on my own. Although there are nine different styles of sauces offered, you can certainly play with them to create your own dish.
What I especially like about these sauces is that they allow you to create quality meals even on a busy weeknight, are flexible enough to use whatever you have on-hand to tie your ingredients together easily, and in this case, gives you a creative way to enhance your favorite dishes. For these tacos, I combined both ground beef and chorizo together and used the simmer sauce to meld the flavors together. The simmer sauce enhanced my usual taco filling with a nice bbq flavor… and the finishing sauce made it even more special. Using the Kraft Recipe Makers Hickory BBQ Beef sauces put a delicious spin on dinner and my boys loved it!
