ANCHO, PECAN, SWEET POTATO TACOS with SWEET CHILI SNACK JACK

Updated: Sep 19, 2018



It's #TacoTuesday and we're craving tacos! Let's be real though--this is Texas. Everyday is taco day. To be honest, we had no clue it was even Tuesday!


These tacos are super simple and quick to make! We usually love our spices and go wild with herbs, but the Sweet Chili Snack Jack is so tasty that the only spice we added to this recipe was ground ancho chile pepper! You're not going to believe how steak-like the jerky gets when you prepare it like this. Try it and let us know what you think!
