Chicken Mole Tacos #Chocolate Week

Add some dark chocolate to your tacos today.  This mole sauce adds tons of flavor to ground chicken helping to make your tacos a bit heart healthier. Adding chopped nuts and using soft corn tortillas instead of fried hard shells add fiber and continue with the heart healthy theme.

Lamb and Lupin Kofte with a Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet #WorldWineTravel

Delicious lamb meatballs known as kafta in Lebanon and kofte in other countries mixed with lupin flakes made from a legume grown in Australia were a huge hit in our house, especially when paired with a Cabernet from Western Australia.  Surprising to me because my husband and youngest profess to not liking lamb but loved these kofte.

Kofte and Wine

These kafta are made with ground lamb and lupini flakes.  I had never heard of lupini flakes before but I guess they are quite popular in Australian cooking.  I found them on Amazon and ordered up a bag.  These kafta are sooooo good!! I can't wait to try the flakes in other applications.
