Taco lovers! I’ve got a recipe that’s gonna blow your taste buds away… Crispy brussels sprouts, juicy chicken, and a punch of chipotle mayo, all nestled inside a tortilla. Are you drooling yet?
Now, I can’t take all the credit for this delicious recipe. I actually created these tacos after having the most mind-blowing brussels sprout tacos at a restaurant in North Carolina. I mean, seriously, the brussels had the most perfect crisp – they were to die for. BUT I couldn’t resist recreating them with my own spin.
I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I took those tacos from “mmm” to “OMG”. Trust me, these aren’t your average tacos. They’re gonna make your taste buds do a little happy dance… especially if you like some spice! So, grab a seat, grab your ingredients, and let’s taco ’bout it!
Now, let’s talk about the secret behind the outrageously crispy Brussels sprouts in this recipe. We’re taking a detour from the traditional oven method and diving into the magical world of air-frying. Seriously, whoever invented the air-fryer deserves a gold medal.
Why, you ask? Well, first off, it’s quick! Instead of waiting around for those sprouts to crisp up in the oven for over 30 minutes, the air-fryer does the job in a mere 5-6 minutes. No more drumming your fingers impatiently while your hunger grows with each passing minute.
Secondly, the air-fryer ensures uniform and perfectly crispy results. Every single sprout gets its fair share of crispy goodness. It’s like they’re competing in a beauty pageant for the crispiest veggie, and they all come out winners.
Just toss those shaved brussels sprouts in some olive oil, sprinkle them with garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and let the air-fryer work its magic. The result? Golden-brown, crunchy exteriors with a tender bite inside. Trust me, once you try air-fried Brussels sprouts, there’s no turning back.
