We're Moving on Up! Coco Cooks Has Moved.

Remember your first place? It was the most exciting move in the world. Maybe you started off with advantages  and a full perfect house, or maybe you stared out with nothing,and added as you went. Eventually you outgrew  the place , as your needs and desires changed. Well that's how I feel . It was with a little trepidation and fear, I decided to move. I heard  and saw the horror stories before. But I knew I had to do it and wanted more after four years of paying my dues in the blogging world. Through Twitter I found the incredible magician web developer,Vino Luci, who held my hand, and voila!She really understands a food bloggers needs and was worth every penny.A blogger has to consider their blog as business and not as a hobby, if they are in it for the long haul. In just a little under a week I feel like George Jefferson who moved on up to the East Side.Its huge difference as you will see. I hope you follow me and enjoy a new and improved Coco Cooks.

If I do say myself, It's hawt!

Drunken Goat Tacos,A Winner, and A Move for Coco

The other day Certain Someone was quick to remind me that I haven't posted in a while. With summer, the holiday and intense, heat, who can honestly think about cooking? I have been eating a lot of cold salads, sandwiches, and takeout. I meant to post last weekend, but I decided to take the opportunity to fully relax. Some big changes are afoot here at Coco Cooks. I will be moving in few weeks to my own domain. After four years of blogging , its about time.I hope you guys come to visit  and stay awhile. I promise the digs will be more snazzy.I confess I know nothing about tech issues, and am fully entrusting myself to VinoLuci, whom seems to be the master of moves and design.
Before we get started on the recipe for Drunken Goat Tacos, I picked a winner finally for the book Substituting Ingredients. The winner is Saretta!Enjoy!

A few months ago while preparing for my Farmers Market Demo, I purchased some ground goat meat from Mint Creek Farms.Normally I see goat sold in pieces with bones, and I was attracted the pureness of the ground goat,without the bones.I decided to make a taco.If you haven't tried goat yet, I don't know what  you are waiting for. Get over your aversion and dig in. I promise you will be pleasantly surprised . Tacos were an easy and quick meal  with my acquisition. This recipe was just thrown together, so follow your own instinct.I call it Drunken Goat Tacos, because I simmered the meat in red wine. 

Drunken Goat Tacos
1 lb ground goat meat
1 -2 ears fresh raw corn on cob, scraped off the cob
1 knob onion chopped (green and white parts)
2 dried Chipolte peppers soaked in hot water and seeded
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 cup  dry red wine
salt and pepper to taste
Corn Tortillas, sour cream, wedges of lime, green tomatillo salsa, and Cojita Cheese

 In a small bowl , soak the dried Chipoltes in boiling hot water for 15-20 minutes.
In a heavy skillet, heat oil. Add corn kernels, chopped onion. Soften and brown on medium heat. Remove Chiplote's from hot water, de seed, and chop.Save the reserved water.Add to the skillet. Add ground goat to skillet and brown on medium/high heat.Season with cumin, salt, pepper, garlic. Add a bit of the reserved water to aid the meat in cooking( a few tablespoons at a time). As liquid evaporates add more. Then add red wine and simmer until all liquid is absorbed/ The meat should be moist  but still crumbly.
Serve with Corn Tortillas, sour cream, wedges of lime, green tomatillo salsa, and Cojita Cheese.
