I got the idea from my food (and beverage) adventures at Hooley's, a local Irish pub and restaurant. They serve up some CRAZY-GOOD corned beef tacos, along with other delicious traditional (and not so traditional) Irish dishes. After my first corned beef taco experience a few years ago, I was desperate to figure out what was in them so I could go home and replicate the recipe. Well it turns out, besides the corned beef, they are made with a few other simple ingredients I always have on-hand... in fact, you probably do too!
So what the heck are in these magical corned beef tacos?! Flavorful corned beef is wrapped up in soft corn tortillas, then topped with cheddar cheese, ranch dressing, and raw cabbage! So simple, quick and easy... and a great way to re-purpose that St. Patty's Day corned beef. Seriously, us Southern Californians will make a taco out of anything!
Corned Beef Tacos
Here's all you need:
- cooked corned beef
- corn tortillas
- cheddar cheese, shredded
- light Ranch dressing
- cabbage, chopped
Place a generous helping of warm (or re-heated), cooked corned beef in the middle of a warmed corn tortilla. Top corned beef with a sprinkle of shredded cheese, a drizzle of ranch, and a handful of chopped cabbage (to your own taste). Serve warm!
Hooley's serves their Corned Beef Tacos with a side of crispy wedge fries and more Ranch!
Want to change things up this St. Patrick's Day? You could break away from serving the traditional Irish dishes and serve up these tacos for the holiday instead... you just have to have the corned beef pre-cooked! Use our easy Slow Cooker Corned Beef recipe, let it cook all day, and then you'll have the corned beef warm and ready to go for tacos.
I love this homemade version of my Irish pub favorite... I think Hooley's would approve.
