Chupaqueso Tacos!

We had some vegetarians for dinner, and decided that there's nothing better than make-your-own tacos for the gastronomical pleasure of carnivores and herbivores alike.

The Whole Spread
Diced Chicken
-8 chicken thighs, diced
-2 tb taco seasoning

Toss chicken in seasoning and sautee until browned.

Lime Shrimp
-1 lb shrimp, halved
-juice of 1/2 lime
-salt to taste

Sautee the shrimp until just pink, then season with salt and spritz with lime.

Creamy Spicy Corn
-2 cans sweet corn, drained
-1 cup cream
-1 ts cayenne
-1 ts salt

Simmer the corn in the rest of the ingredients until all the liquid has evaporated.

-1 bunch chard, chopped
-salt and pepper to taste

Sautee the chard until tender and bright green.

Homemade Guacamole

Serve the above with chopped black olives, tomato, cheese, sour cream and salsa in a soft tortilla or a chupaqueso taco shell (below).

Chupaqueso Taco Shells
This was even tastier than we expected. Just make the chupaquesos and fold in half and set aside to harden slightly. Click here for a how to video of making the basic chupaqueso.
