This recipe for Ancho Short Rib Tacos came across my Facebook feed recently from Williams-Sonoma and I knew I had to try it.  Most of the recipes I post are recipes of my own, however, I have to make an exception for this one.  I made a few alterations of my own, but not many, it didn’t need them. It is a phenomenal recipe with amazing flavors.  I made this when we had family in town visiting and it definitely did not disappoint.  The beauty of this recipe is that with a little planning ahead, it will do most of the work for you while you’re entertaining guests or relaxing with family.  The end presentation is beautiful and you can serve it family style. Everyone can build their own just how they want it, so everyone is happy! Continue reading →
