At Goodfood, Tacos are always something we get excited about, especially when they’re beef tacos, topped with a crunchy red cabbage slaw, Mexican panela cheese, and smothered in a bright homemade salsa verde. The key component to our salsa verde is the tomatillo; with its tart, citrusy flavour, this is our secret weapon for next-level tacos!

Start the salsa verde
Heat a large dry pan on high. Add the tomatillos and cook, rotating occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, until charred on a few sides. Transfer to a cutting board to cool, then small dice. Reserve the pan.

Make the slaw
While the tomatillos char, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, ½ the shallot, and as much of the the lime zest and juice as you’d like; drizzle with olive oil and season with S&P to taste. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes while you prep the next steps.

Finish the salsa verde
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the remaining shallot and cook, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add ¾ of the chopped tomatillos; season with S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, until completely softened. Transfer to a bowl; set aside in a cool spot. Add ½ the cilantro, and honey; season with S&P to taste.

Cook the beef
While the tomatillos cook, in a second large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the ground beef; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan and set aside in a warm spot.

Heat the tortillas & serve
Heat the reserved pan on medium. Working one or two at a time (so that they do not overlap), toast the tortillas, 30 seconds to 1 minute per side, until lightly browned. Divide the beef, cabbage slaw, and salsa between the warmed tortillas. Garnish with the remaining tomatillos, cheese and cilantro. Serve the remaining salsa and slaw on the side. Bon appétit!
