What’s for dinner on St. Patrick’s day? There’s pretty much one answer to that, and we all know what it is. But what if you’re just not in the mood for corned beef and cabbage? What if you’re sort of just feelin’… Mexican?
That’s where a little imagination comes in. This year, Laura and I bent the rules a bit and had a not-so-traditional St. Paddy’s Day Taco Night. The one rule: it had to have Corn, Beans, and Cabbage, naturally. Check out the menu after the break.
(Tomatillos, corn, red onion, jalepeno, cilantro, mint, lime juice)
over Turkey Tacos
(ground turkey, peppers + onions, garlic, refried beans)
(avacado, Icelandic yogurt (Greek would work, too… anything thick), cilantro, white onion, lime juice)
and Cabbage on the side.
(cabbage, pineapple, chipotle, garlic, jerk spices, cinnamon, lime juice)
And of course, we washed it down with Brooklyn Local 2 dyed green. You might view this meal as blasphemous, but honestly, I think we stumbled onto a new tradition. It’s all green (or orange), and it’s all delicious. Ask me: do I miss potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day? My 1 word answer: yogamole.
