Pineapple Poblano Beef Tacos

We love a good old taco Tuesday at Buckingham Cottage.  This recipe does not disappoint.  There a a nice sweetness to it from the pineapple and then a nice spice to it from taco seasoning and poblano pepper.  It is a delicious combination that had me excited to replicate!  Highly husband recommended!


Prep Time: 10 minutes   Total Time: 30 minutes      Serves: 2 people

Ingredients I need to cook this shit:

  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Poblano Pepper
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1/4 oz. of Cilantro
  • 1 Lime
  • 4 oz. of Pineapple
  • 4 TBSP Sour Cream
  • 1 TBSP Taco Spice Blend
  • 10 oz. of Ground Beef
  • 6 Flour Tortillas
  • 2 tsp of Vegetable Oil

Directions to cook this shit:

  1. Wash and dry all your produce shit.  Halve, peel and finely dice onion. Core and seed poblano, then cut into 1/2-inch squares. Core and seed tomatoes, then cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Roughly chop cilantro. Cut lime into wedges. Drain pineapple, reserving juice, roughly chop fruit.
  2. Toss together 2 TBSP onion, 1/4 cup poblano, tomatoes, pineapple, half the cilantro, and a squeeze of lime in a medium bowl. In a separate small bowl, mix sour cream with a squeeze of lime. Season with salt and pepper, and more lime to taste.
  3. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high  heat. Add remaining onion and poblano. Season with salt, pepper, and half the taco spice. Cook, tossing, until softened, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add beef to pan, breaking  up meat into pieces. Season with salt, pepper, and remaining taco spice.  Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 2-3 minutes. (Carefully pour out any excess grease in pan if oily.) Stir in reserved pineapple juice and remove pan from heat.
  5. White beef cooks, wrap tortillas in a damp towel and microwave on high until warm, about 30 seconds.
  6. Divide beef mixture between tortillas. Spoon salsa and crema over. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
