This year I’ve been making a concerted effort to focus on self care throughout December. It’s simply too easy to let the chaos of holiday parties, concerts, special events, gift shopping, and a million more little details to remember rule your life. I know because that’s exactly what happened to me last year and it was miserable. It’s impossible to fill up the cups of others if you’re pouring from an empty cup yourself. So in addition to making and keeping a regular workout schedule, I’ve also been cooking dinners that are new, exciting, and delicious. And since it’s me, you must have known that would mean tacos. Great tacos fill my belly and my cup at the same time.
My love for tacos knows no season, but my brussels sprouts bingeing is an impressive phenomenon that lasts November-March, at least. It was only natural that I combine the two. Unfortunately my first attempt was face-meltingly hot but I got these just right the second time around. I want to make them again and again and honestly, I don’t think anyone else in my house would mind to much if I did. I hope you love them as much as I do!
