TABASCO Taco Tuesday!

Tabasco Taco Tuesday!

It’s TABASCO Taco Tuesday! The taco phenomenon has gone CRAZY! Street tacos, soft tacos, hard tacos, beef, shrimp, chicken, fish tacos, and even vegan tacos. But you haven’t tasted anything like my TABASCO …

Taco Potato Balls, which are fun spin on the classic flavors of traditional tacos!

My yummy TABASCO Taco Potato Balls are inspired by the most popular croquettes found south of the border where they’re known as Papa Rellena, or Papas Rellenas. In American terms these delicious treats are simply stuffed potato balls.

My particular twist on this recipe is to use taco seasoned ground beef with generous splashes of TABASCO for stuffing stiff but creamy smashed potatoes; the entire recipe is included below. Yes, you can add cheese and diced jalapeños, and maybe some onion and cilantro when preparing the stuffing; let your own taste buds be your guide.

One thing is certain, no matter what you call them, these little balls of joy will make every Taco Tuesday a fiesta to remember. And remember, a few splashes of TABASCO is all you need to flavor your world!

Seafood Stuffed Poblano

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Planning a Cinco de Mayo party? My yummy Tabasco drizzled Seafood Stuffed Poblano Pepper is a surefire star of your party. With a few splashes of Tabasco your party is sure to be muy caliente!

Here in the holiday obsessed US, where it seems we’re always ready to put life on pause and party, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a life of its own and become another huge national day of celebration. But what are we celebrating? No, it’s not the celebration of Mexican Independence as many people wrongfully believe. Cinco de Mayo is actually the celebration of the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

Let’s be honest, that’s not why we party on the fifth of May. In other words, Cinco de Mayo has become a great PR campaign to sell tequila and Mexican beer! And that’s OK, because any reason is a good reason to enjoy Margaritas and my delicious Tabasco spiced Seafood Stuffed Poblano Peppers. Americans celebrate with Americanized Mexican foods, such as tacos, burritos, chips, salsa, and guacamole. Margaritas, also widely associated with Mexican culture, are often a part of the American Cinco de Mayo festivities and tequila in general tends to play a role. Speaking of Margaritas, in picture is a yummy cranberry orange margy!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!”
