Uhh, you guys…these tacos…I can’t even begin to explain how insane they were. It was a spur of the moment decision for me to make Thai chicken tacos yesterday. It’s been a while since we had a taco, and the craving was totally there. They ended up being one of the simplest, most satisfying meals I’ve made in a long time. We also have enough leftovers to probably feed us for the rest of the week, so that is, of course, a great bonus. The peanut vinaigrette is much lighter than other peanut sauces I have had/prepared, and was the perfect dipping sauce for these tacos. These tacos are packed full of fresh veggies and the chicken can be thrown in your slow cooker in the morning, and you will have a full meal at dinner time. Yes, it’s simple. We love simple. They also make the perfect lunchtime snack. We paired this recipe with one of the best American IPAs I’ve had in a long while, and the pairing couldn’t be more perfect. If you are longing for a quick weeknight dinner idea, this recipe is for you!
Beer: Crazy Mountain’s Hookiebobb IPA
Style: American IPA
Description: I was extremely impressed with this IPA. It may be one of the most well-balanced IPAs I’ve ever had. It is citrusy, with floral notes, but still has a hint of caramel malt. This, I just love and is why I decided to pair these tacos with it. I wanted something hoppy, but palatable, and this brew fits this description perfectly. It also really compliments the hint of spiciness in these tacos. It fits the bill as an incredible pairing, but is just as tasty all by itself. If you haven’t yet given it a go, I highly recommend that you do so!
