Recipe Thursday: Winter Taco Party!

Are you over the dreary weather and ready for some sunshine? An indoor festive taco party is a great way to ease the winter blues amidst the chilly temperatures outside. Turn up the heat in the kitchen, decorate with a fun piñata and you’ll almost believe it’s summer. We love a taco party with homemade tortillas and a flavorful filling such as Carne Asada. This taco recipe from Downshiftology features marinated flank steak and a hefty side of all the best toppings – avocado, onion, cotija cheese, cilantro and lime.

If you’re not in the margarita mood, the perfect wine for this meal is a bottle of Château Lacapelle Cabenac Cahors "Prestige." The dark fruit and rustic spice on this Malbec work amazingly well with the spicy char of the carne asada. Plus, since Malbec has softer tannins compared to some of its red counterparts, it goes well with lean cuts of meat like the juicy flank steak in the tacos.
