Satisfy your taco cravings AND your Asian cravings with 20 Minute Red Curry Beef Tacos with Coconut Crema! Bursting with flavor and couldn’t be any easier!
If you have been following Carlsbad Cravings for a little while, it is no secret that Asian and Mexican foods are my FAV. But Asian and Mexican together – mind blowing! I recently made Asian Sweet Chili Chicken Enchiladas and and I cannot even begin to describe how good they are, but you know I will try (coming soon). My only hesitation with such recipes is that because they are a little out of the box, that people won’t try them and realize how good they really are. But I hope you trust me on these, they are Ah-mazing! And did I mention the are ready in 20 minutes?!
The encore cast starts with lean ground beef which is simmered with kidney beans, red curry paste, garlic and splashes of soy sauce and Asian Sweet Chili Sauce. You will eat this taco filling with a spoon. Not want to eat with a spoon – will eat with a spoon – because its irresistibly delish!
You then pile your filling with whatever your heart desires. I went with Jack cheese, shredded cabbage and matchstick carrots for the crunchy texture, then topped with fresh pineapple and mangos for the natural citrus sweetness that perfectly compliments the rich, hearty red curry filling. To me the mangos are a must so if you are intimidated by cutting mangos – do’t be, just check out my How to Cut A Mango Post that teaches everything you could ever want to know about mangos!
And finally, topped it all with my new creation which I am dousing on everything – Coconut Crema!
Its a simple mixture of coconut yogurt, mayonnaise and honey. Creamy, sweet, coconut in every bite – LOVE!
This whole meal can be on your table in 20 minutes but the encore of flavors and textures tastes truly gourmet. You can even make the filling ahead of time or even make it in bulk and freeze it. You can even prepare all the toppings ahead of time. So many options. I’m just daydreaming of how I can have these Red Curry Beef Tacos at my fingertips – all the time.
And everyone is going to fall in love with it!
