whatscookinwednesdayOh my gosh, look what we’re having for supper tomorrow night!  My family is going to LOVE this!

Our newest product, Texas Rib Candy, is the star of Texas Rib Candy Tacos, naturally.  Rib Candy is well-named, too; it’s so awesomely good, you might find yourself spilling a little on purpose just so you can spoon it up, plain!

This particular recipe uses Apple Cherry Habanero Rib Candy, and these tacos are so fantastic they’re almost dessert!  These are also the perfect summer taco, because they’re best served cold.

Main Ingredients:

juice of one medium lemon

1 teaspon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon salt (do not leave out!)

2 cups shredded cooked chicken, dark or light (your preference rules here)

6 tortillas or taco shells, soft or hard

1 large apple, diced

1/2 cup cherries, pitted and diced

Apple/cherry salad, see recipe below

2/3 cup Texas Apple Cherry Rib Candy

cilantro leaves (leave this step out if your family doesn’t like cilantro)

Ingredients for apple/cherry salad:

1 medium apple, diced

1/2 cup cherries, pitted and diced

juice of 1/2 lemon

dash garlic

1 cup shredded lettuce

What to do:

Mix all of the main ingredients (except the shells) together and let them “set.”

Make a small buffet out of Texas Rib Candy Tacos by putting the main ingredients on a nice platter, and set the salad on another.  Don’t waste your time putting the rest of the Texas Rib Candy in the refrigerator; people will want more than they’ll get in the recipe itself.  In fact, I wouldn’t count on having any Texas Rib Candy left over at all.  Next time you order some, you’d better order several.  Seriously. It’s that awesome.

You might wonder, looking over this recipe before you begin, why there is so much apple and cherry in it.  After your crew tears into it, though, you won’t wonder any more.  You’ll know.

P.S.  Use fresh cherries.  DO NOT used maraschino cherries!

P.P.S.  Some people keep the shredded lettuce separate from the rest of the ingredients.  Do this however you wish; Texas Rib Candy Tacos are yummy good no matter what your method of serving preference might be!
