Test Kitchen

Every Saturday I'll try out a new recipe I just found on the'll see the good and the bad of it.

Chipotle-Grilled Tacos

Description: Remember this recipe? I do. It was sent in by a loyal follower (that term sounds like I'm making people drink the Kool-Aid). It took a little time, but I got around to testing it out. Glad I did. Thanks again to Amy for sending this one my way.

Recipe Difficulty (Scale of 1-10): 7
I went with a high difficulty here only because of the pork loin. I'm tired of eating dried out loin. Great piece of meat if grilled correctly. If not, it ends up tasting like a catcher's mitt. It's easy grilling pork loin, just don't overcook it. The rest of the recipe is simple to put together.

How it turned out: AWESOME!!!
Umm, look at the do you think it turned out? This is truly a great recipe. Very Bobby Flay-isc. It was sweet, tangy, and spicy.

Would I make again: Yes...absolutely yes.
Everyone loved this one...definitely met with rave reviews. And as you can see, you can even have a little fun with the presentation. I decided to deconstruct mine.

We had these last night...SO good! My presentation wasn't as pretty, but they were mighty delicious. A new staple in my repertoire. The guacamole was a necessity!

Totally agree, the guac cools things down a bit. This recipe is a keeper.
