With these crowd-pleasing ‘Pioneer Woman’ recipes, Ree Drummond has your next Taco Tuesday covered.
Tacos are almost never a bad idea, and Ree Drummond of The Pioneer Woman has a range of twists on the popular dish.
As the mother of five children, it’s easy to see how tacos would be a staple in the Drummond household. Even the pickiest diner won’t get bored on Taco Tuesday with all of her taco creations to select from.
Drummond’s Shrimp Tacos are simple to make, and one ingredient is particularly important.
Shrimp, of course, are used in the Food Network star’s shrimp tacos, which take “virtually no time to cook,” according to Drummond in her Food Network video for the dish, which can be found on the gourmet channel’s website.
After the shrimp have cooked, the cook adds cumin and red enchilada sauce, though the cook notes that “if you can get Mexican red sauce in a can, it is really excellent.”
Drummond’s Shrimp Tacos, served with tortillas, sour cream, pico de gallo, avocado, and crisp, tangy cabbage slaw, will quickly become a Taco Tuesday classic.
The most important element, according to The Pioneer Woman’s host? On her website, she added, “A squeeze of lime.” “I can’t tell you how critical this component is. It’s so vital that if you skip it, your life will spiral downward into a series of mistakes and disappointments, and forty years from now, you’ll kick yourself in the head and wonder, “WHY didn’t I squeeze that lime into my shrimp taco that one day?” WHY?’” Her Taco Tomatoes are made without tortillas. Drummond’s Taco Tomatoes are easy to make and light. A hollowed-out tomato acts as your “tortilla shell,” with scallions, cooked mince beef (or turkey if you want), taco seasoning, salsa, hot sauce, and salt. Lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro leaves, jalapenos, hot sauce, and lime are served on top. It’s actually as easy as it sounds.
“You’re going to adore them,” Drummond promises in the Food Network video for the recipe.
