I was recently allowed to opportunity to participate in the Steviva Brands Sweeteners Blogger Recipe Challenge.
Of course, I accepted the challenge before a few big unexpected events in our life happened; a hurricane and a newborn baby. Life has a way of saying “surprise” at just the precise time. And, during the time of chaos and construction, my mind was whirling with recipe ideas.
Then, our power came back and it was testing and tasting…. and now: I have for you, my friends: dinner and a drink.
There’s dessert, too. But that’s another post.
Let’s talk taco. Let’s talk sweet and spicy, rich and creamy, a marriage of flavor so unbelievably tasty you’ll go back for thirds.
This isn’t you ordinary taco pie. This has a melody of rich flavors you can only get from scratch made sauce., topped with freshly seasoned ground beef, studded with green olives, black beans and corn. Loaded with melted sharp cheddar and topped with a creamy . spicy- sweet siracha sauce.
Garnished with crisp lettuce and juicy diced tomatoes, it’s a feast for the tastebuds and the senses.
And: before you get worried about the time factor of “from scratch”, it’s actually quite easy.
Now; what would be a good after dinner drink? Something smooth and creamy… definitly not bland. Because after this complexity of seasoning and spice… you don’t want your tastebuds to be disappointed.
Enter in: Vanilla Spice Caramel Apple Cider
Tart apple cider, warmed, spiced and spiked with bourbon and a pillowy cloud of monk fruit sweetened vanilla bean whipped cream, and a drizzle of cinnamon spiced Nectivia syrup.
It’s creamy and spicy, smooth and sweet.
And: there you have it. Dinner and drinks. Enjoy, folks!
