Irish Tacos

Recipe by  

"We had these at an Irish Pub, they were to die for. A combination we thought wouldn't taste too good but all the patrons said it was the best thing on the menu, and they were right! Corned beef, coleslaw and sauce inside a flour tortilla."

  2. Place the corned beef in a saucepan over medium-low heat just until hot. Place a tortilla into a heavy skillet over medium heat until hot and just beginning to show brown spots, about 30 seconds per side. To assemble, arrange about 2 tablespoons of coleslaw on a tortilla; follow with 3 tablespoons of corned beef. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the yogurt sauce; roll up to serve.

These are a favorite in my house after St. Patty's Day. I usually use corn tortillas and add mashed spuds if they are around. Top with tangy sharp shredded cheddar cheese and these are Great!! The combo of coleslaw and corned beef reminds me of NY deli sammies, OH YUMMO. Thank You PacNWCook. Got a good one here:)

This made more sauce than I could use for sixteen tacos.

I used this recipie for fish tacos instead and they were so delicious! The sauce added just the right touch to my tilipia and worked wonderfully with the coleslaw!!

I questioned this recipe because the sauce contains a lot of plain yogurt. I hate plain yogurt-it's bitter. Even before I put the tacos together I was still skeptical because when I sampled the sauce, bitter, plain yogurt was all I could taste. BUT THEN...I put it all together and YUMMO!! Delicious--I used the coleslaw dressing recipe from "Simple Coleslaw" on this site too! Oh, and it does make a lot more yogurt sauce then you would probably ever use

These were really good. I haven't tried anything outside the traditional taco, but I really loved the flavors and how they came together. My husband was scheptical until he tasted them. Then he asked me to put the recipe in my regular rotation. Thanks!
