This simple chili recipe is the easiest, most forgiving and delicious you will eat. Make 3 times the amount so that you can freeze batches of it for a rainy day!
Everyone’s familiar with Mexican flavors in tacos, but these 5 spice tacos use braised pork and Asian seasonings to knock it out of the park!
I can eat tacos for days, but 5 spice tacos are a welcome change of pace from the traditional Mexican flavors we all love.
I like to serve these 5 spice tacos with a big bowl of crunchy slaw on the side. You can swap in vegetables with whatever you have on hand.
Want a an even healthier version? Try swapping out tortillas for cabbage leaves! You get similar flavor and crunch with none of the carbs. (Even my kids love tacos in cabbage leaves!)
As with all Connected Chef recipes, let your kitchen and instincts guide you as you cook. The ingredient amount below are used as a starting off point; taste as you go and reseason as needed!
