Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Dakota Tacos “Indian Tacos”

October 12, 2016 at 5:01 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | 4 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is Dakota Tacos “Indian Tacos”. It’s made using the delicious Wild Idea Ground Buffalo Meat. Also include are recipes for Fry Bread and a Zesty Sour Cream Dressing. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Ground Buffalo Meat all on the Wild Idea Buffalo website! http://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

 

My secret ingredient in the preparation of the fry bread, is club soda, which makes the dough and bread lighter. I also use coconut oil, which has a good nutritional profile, and is great for deep frying. Be sure to fry at a high enough heat, 375° to limit oil absorption and to give the edges a nice crispiness. The slightly spicy, seasoned meat balances nicely with the creamy, Zesty Sour Cream Dressing.

Taco Ingredients:
1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo Meatdakota-tacos-indian-tacos
1 – small onion, chopped
1 – tablespoon olive oil
2 – teaspoons chili powder
2 – teaspoons cumin
1½ – teaspoons salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – teaspoon oregano
1 – teaspoon smoked paprika
½ – teaspoon coriander
2 – cups lettuce leaves, or chopped lettuce
1 – cup grated cheddar cheese
Zesty Sour Cream Dressing, recipe below

Preparation:

1) Measure all spice ingredients, and set aside.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat the olive oil.

3) Add the chopped onion and crumble in the ground buffalo.

4) Sprinkle seasonings over the meat, and stir to incorporate, breaking up the meat into smaller pieces as you stir.

5) Cook until meat is browned, about 7 minutes. Cover, set aside, and re-heat when the fry bread is ready.

6) To assemble, place warm fry bread on plates, and top with the hot seasoned meat, lettuce, and cheese. Drizzle with the Zesty Sour Cream Dressing and enjoy!

Fry Bread *Recipe makes 4 fry bread servings, with 275 calories per each.
Ingredients:
2 – cups unbleached organic flour, plus a half cup more for handling and rolling outdakota-tacos-indian-tacos2-fry-bread
2 – teaspoon baking soda
¼ – teaspoon salt
½ – cup 2% milk
½ cup club soda
3 – cups coconut oil
Preparation:

1) Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and sift to incorporate.

2) Add milk and soda and stir in until incorporated. The dough will be slightly sticky.

3) Flour hands and pat dough into a ball, place the dough on a floured surface and divide into 4 equal servings. Using floured hands press portions into a disk shape and roll out into about a six-inch diameter with a floured rolling pin.

4) In a 8 inch diameter saucepan, over medium high heat, heat coconut oil. Oil is at the right temperature when at 375°, or you can test by inserting a wooden spoon into the oil, the oil is ready if it bubbles up around the spoon.

5) Drop fry bread disk into oil carefully, one at a time, cooking about one minute each side or until golden. Place cooked fry breads on a paper bag or paper towels until ready to serve.

*Fry Bread is best served soon after cooking, or while still warm.

Zesty Sour Cream Dressing

Ingredients:
¾ – cup sour cream
2 – tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
2 – tablespoons canned, roasted, peeled green chilies with juice, puréed
¼ – teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional or to taste
salt to taste
Preparation: Mix all ingredients together and whisk to incorporate. Store in refrigerator until needed.

Simple Truth Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches

Last week I tried a new Breakfast Sandwich that I found at Kroger, Simple Truth Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches. I’ve found a winner for Breakfast Sandwiches here! I’ve tried countless frozen Breakfast Sandwiches, Simple Truth Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwicheswithout much success of finding a good one until now.

They can be found in the Frozen Organic Section of Kroger. They come 2 to a box and contain 220 calories and 23 carbs (20 net carbs) per sandwich, not too bad at all for a Breakfast Sandwich. It’s a Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich with Egg Whites and Cheddar Cheese on an English Muffin. All the ingredients are of nice size portions. To prepare it just remove on of the Breakfast Sandwiches from the box and remove the plastic wrapping. Wrap the Sandwich loosely in a paper towel and place it on a microwave usable plate. Then heat on high for 1 minute and 45 seconds, the time varies according to the microwave. I have to mine for 2 minutes.

The Sandwich comes out perfect! The English Muffin remains soft, and not hard like a lot of Breakfast Sandwiches. The Turkey Sausage, Egg White, and Cheddar Cheese Slice combine to make one delicious way to start your day. Easily prepared and no mess to clean up! If you get a chance give these a try, I love them!
