Kale Tacos

October 5, 2010

Good Evening!

I’m so glad I got a ton of stuff done over the weekend; I actually feel like I have a chance to relax (and blog) in the evenings. 🙂

My afternoon snack: Siggi’s Pomegranate & Passion Fruit Yogurt. I really liked this flavor! It was a good one.

My husband really is the chef in our house. I need a recipe, but he says he “creates.”

His creation tonight: Kale Tacos!

He actually came up with this creation while in college. So while most guys were stuff their faces with pizza, burgers, and Top Ramen, my future husband was getting regular. (If you know what I mean!) 😉

Craig started by mixing these seasonings (to your taste’s preference) in a small bowl: cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, and salt.

He then chopped onion, tomatoes, and sauted them to a saucepan with extra virgin olive oil.

The show-stopper, a giant bundle of kale.

Now chop, chop, chop that bad boy!!

Next he added the kale to the pan that contained the onions and tomatoes.Place the cover on the pot and allow kale to steam.

Steam mixture until it looks like this. Nothing but veggies, I like it!

Add seasoning mixture to the kale and stir.

Part one is now complete.

Part two: Start by placing corn tortilla on a non-stick skillet sprayed with olive oil.

Spray tortilla with more olive oil and sprinkle with: basil, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper.

Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top and allow to melt.

Remove from heat. . .

and top with kale mixture.

Craig likes to top his with additional cheese. 🙂

Fold like a taco, eat, and enjoy!

I like it when my husband cooks for me. 😀

These are SO good! I can’t believe kale can taste this good! Granted it is quite fibrous, and a little tough to bite through, the combination of the seasonings, cheese, and corn tortilla make this creation super delicious!

I needed a little ice cream to cool my mouth from the heat of it. 🙂

Just a few things on my to-do list tonight:

  • Do an ab workout.
  • Wash my car.
  • Pack my lunch for tomorrow.
  • Clean the kitchen and wash dishes.

Hope your evening was splendid!

    1. hey, where’d you find siggi’s in Anchorage? I never came across it.

    1. I am stillfull and satisfied by the tacos we made. It reminds me of college. Such a good idea to have those last night.

    1. OH MY GOSH!!! We tried these tonight… and they are AMAZING!!! The only thing I added was a heaping amount of fresh garlic. We loved them!

    1. […] wrapped up in a tortilla shell that you can eat with your hands: breakfast burritos, tacos, wraps, kale tacos, pita sandwiches—if you can stuff it in some sort of flat bread, Craig will eat […]

    1. What a great idea and we love kale, I made kale chips last night and then while they were baking I used another bundle of kale to make a salad to enjoy today. 😉

      By the way, it must be really cold in your house, you have a ton of clothes on!!!!

      1. I am *always* freezing!! I pretty much wear a sweatshirt and jacket year-round!! It is not fun!
