I’m not sure I have ever met anyone who doesn’t like tacos?? Crock Pot Street Beef Tacos, easy and time saving, with the help of the good’ol crock pot!
There are a lot of new cooking vessels out there these days, but the crock pot is tried and true. Set it and forget it, even though you will not be able to forget these Crock Pot Street Beef Tacos ……awesome is too weak of a word!
Tim handles all of the Social Media for What the Forks for Dinner?, and lately he has been playing around with Reddit. We had a huge success with Campfire Cupcakes recently only to be banned from the site 🙁 for self promotion 🙁 Being new we did not understand all the rules, and if you have ever used Reddit, you know they are really tough……anyway……during this, Tim sent me a recipe from a site called Host the Toast, for tacos. My recipe is an adaption of that recipe.

With summer coming to a close, so is sweet corn season. This years crop from my friends at Selmi’s was sooooo good! I had a few ears left over and Spicy Fresh Corn Relish was the perfect way to preserve (pun intended) those golden kernels.
Even as a kid my favorite veggie was corn, it still is today. Fresh corn ob the cob is summer at it’s best. If you ever had the chance stop by Selmi’s and pick up a dozen…..better get two…..of their fabulous bi-colored corn do it, you will not be disappointed . My nephews girlfriend told me it the best sweet corn she has ever had……I couldn’t agree more.
The end of summer is also canning time for those who garden and lay up a larder of their goods. While this is not a traditional canning recipe……it’s more like “quick can”, it produces a fine relish. It will last about a month in the frig.
Sweet corn, fresh off the cob, no need to cook it, red onion, red chiles, and jalapeños, with a touch of lime and cilantro for freshness. Cover with an apple cider brine and you have a sweet little relish.
Spicy Fresh Corn relish is a perfect way to spicy up a grilled burger or bratwurst, maybe a hot dog.
If you have a few ears of corn to use up try Spicy Fresh Corn Relish to end the summer with spice!
