Puffy Tacos

Hi there,
 
Here is the best puffy taco recipe ever! Bobby Flay did a Tex-Mex special on 
the Food Networks "Food Nation" a couple of years ago and the recipe is now 
posted on their database.
 
As a San Antonio native, I can vouch for the authenticity of this recipe;  
in-fact, I make this version and trust me, it is exactly like those you'll find  
all over town.

Happy eating!

Hello Susie,

See below.

Phaed

Cracker Barrel's Baby Carrots (Copycat) 
  
2 lbs fresh baby carrots
1 t salt
1 T sugar
2 T margarine
 
Rinse carrots and place in a 2-quart sauce pan. Pour enough water in sauce pan 
to just cover the top of the carrots. Cover carrots with a lid, place on medium 
heat and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes until 
the carrots are tender when pricked with a fork. When carrots start to become 
tender pour half of the water off carrots and add salt, sugar and margarine. 
Place lid on pan and cook until completely tender but not mushy. More salt may 
be added if needed. 
 
You might want to substitute brown sugar, and a dash of nutmeg will do 
wonders. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
