As this blog is ever evolving I’m going to write not just about drinking wines, but other uses for wine and about fun liquors and interesting mixed drinks.
Tonight for dinner I made tacos. The recipe called for beer but I decided to mix things up and add red wine instead. My husband who is a really good cook always tells me to use a wine that I drink when I cook, so I used Jeunesse. The mix of the spicy hot sauce and the sweetness of the wine were a great combination. My husband loved the tacos and said that I should make pasta with this sauce, just use less hot sauce. He’s a big foodie and loves to experiment when he cooks so a compliment from him is big for me. Next time I make tacos I’m going to experiment some more and use a drier wine.
For anyone interested here is my taco recipe, but if you have your own it’s fine just add wine to it. I didn’t use measurements, just eyed everything.
1 Package of ground beef
Heat a large nonstick skillet and add the beef to it, breaking it up. Season meat with salt, pepper, chili powder and cumin. Add chopped onion and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, then add wine. Add hot sauce and tomato sauce. Throughout the whole time stir the meat with a spatula or a wooden spoon. Cover the skillet and let it cook for 5 minutes over low heat.
