Spicy Buffalo Tacos
Ingredients
  • 1  pound  ground buffalo or lean ground beef
  • 1/2  cup  chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 6  garlic, minced
  • 1 15 - 16  ounce can  dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 - 16  ounce can  reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2  cups  coarsely chopped kale leaves
  • 1 15  ounce can  tomato sauce
  • 1 10  ounce can  diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained
  • 2  fresh poblano chile peppers, seeded and chopped*
  • 2  tablespoons  chili powder
  • 1  tablespoon  ground cumin
  • 2  teaspoons  dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon  cayenne pepper
  • 3 1/2  cups  shredded romaine lettuce
  • 14 8  inches  flour tortillas, warmed
  • 14  tablespoons  chopped tomatoes
  • 7  tablespoons  sliced green onions
  • 7  tablespoons  shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Directions

1. In a large nonstick skillet cook buffalo, onion, and garlic over medium-high heat until brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat. Spoon meat mixture into a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add beans, kale, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chile peppers, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.

2. Divide romaine among warmed flour tortillas. Top each with about 1/2 cup of the meat-bean mixture. Top with chopped tomatoes, green onions, and cheese.

From the Test Kitchen*
  • Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
