Crunchy cous cous tacos with sweet n' spicy jalapeno dressing

Tacos are so versatile, as far as I’m concerned it doesn’t matter what you fill them with, they’ll still taste amazing. With that said, sauces and dressing are what take most good meals to next level and this sweet n’ spicy jalapeno dressing does just that.

  1. Tacos
  2. for the dressing:
  3. 5 pickled jalapeno pieces
  4. 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  5. 1 heaped tbsp agave syrup
  6. juice of half lime
  7. 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
  8. for the cous cous:
  9. 1/2 cup cous cous
  10. 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  11. 1/2 cup defrosted frozen peas
  12. 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  13. 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  14. pinch of salt and pepper

Dressing:

  • Put everything in an empty jar and shake vigorously until it emulsifies.
