Tacos are always something we get excited about, especially when they’re filled with beef, topped with a crunchy cabbage slaw and Cotija cheese, then smothered in a bright, homemade salsa verde. The key component of the salsa is the tomatillo; with its tart, citrusy flavour, it’s our secret weapon for taking taco night to the next level.

Start the salsa verde
Heat a large, dry pan on high. Remove and discard the husks of the tomatillos. Add the tomatillos to the pan and cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, until partially charred. Transfer to a cutting board to cool, then small-dice. Reserve the pan.

Make the slaw
While the tomatillos char, zest and juice the lime. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, up to ½ the onions (to taste) and as much of the lime zest and juice as you’d like. Drizzle with olive oil and season with S&P to taste. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes while you complete the next steps.

Finish the salsa verde
Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the remaining onions and cook, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add ¾ of the chopped tomatillos; season with S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, until completely softened. Transfer to a bowl; set aside in a cool spot. Add ½ the cilantro and the honey; season with S&P to taste.

Cook the beef
While the tomatillos cook, in a second large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the ground beef*; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Warm the tortillas & serve
Heat the reserved pan on medium. Working one or two at a time (to avoid overlapping), toast the tortillas, 30 seconds to 1 minute per side, until lightly browned. Divide the warmed tortillas between your plates. Top each with an equal portion of the beef, a spoonful of cabbage slaw and a spoonful of salsa verde. Garnish with the Cotija cheese and remaining tomatillos and cilantro. Serve any remaining salsa and slaw on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking ground beef to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
