Tacos with Wine

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
3Garlic cloves
1 Onion
Chili Powder
Hot Sauce
Tomato Sauce

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.
