Blue Apron: Spicy Tacos

A little while ago we had some late night tacos for an impromptu date night! Well we decided to make our own late night tacos with Blue Apron.

This meal did not have as much prep as the Spanish Style Eggs did in our last Blue Apron dish. This was great because I came home from work and put this meal together on my own since hubs was still at work! By the time he got home all we had left was heating up the tortillas.

The prep and assembly were pretty simple. This dish included a “salsa” of halved cherry tomatoes and jalapeƱo doused with lime juice. It had a side of creamed corn which was pretty easy-sour cream and pan seared corn kernels. The beef crumbles were seasoned with salt, pepper, tomato paste, and a chipotle sauce.

When I saw the word spicy, I was super excited! I like spicy, not burn your taste buds off spicy, but a flavorful spicy. Disappointingly, this dish ended up being more sweet than spicy.

The creamed corn was sweet from, well, the corn. The meat was sweet from the tomato paste. The chipotle paste that you were supposed to add based on how spicy you wanted it was more sweet than anything else. BTdubs, I added the WHOLE thing.

We were both not fans of this meal. There was nothing really bringing all the components together (if that makes sense?) other than all the sweetness. That being said, we all have different palates and enjoy different types of flavors so you may really love this dish.

If we continue with Blue Apron I know this will NOT be a dish we try again! If you have Blue Apron have you tried this dish? What are your favorite Blue Apron dishes? Let me know in the comments below!
