Halloween Treats + Wicked Spicy Sausage Tacos {Recipe}

I don’t know about you, but I love holidays. Any holiday really, as long as there’s a good theme to sink your teeth into. Halloween is even better because you get to dress up in ridiculous clothes and it’s completely okay.
Unfortunately, I have been traveling on most of the Halloween weekends in the past few year so Halloween parties have been difficult to host or attend. But if I could have one this year, these are the treats I would serve!

So many good treats to choose from this time of year! But since I’m not going to a Halloween party anytime soon, Kirk created a taco recipe that is wicked good!
Wicked Spicy Sausage Tacos
If you’d like to calm down the spice in this recipe, seed the jalapeno before chopping. For spice-lovers, the raspberries balance the spice and create a balanced blend of flavors with a spice the builds nicely as you eat.

    These treats are so cute! And do I have a problem when I’m thinking at 7:30 AM “Hmmmm, that bourbon looks so good”? lol.

      Oh man, so jealous of your party. I think we’ll dress up for handing out candy, I read a great idea to dress up as a marathoner, which I kinda like. ;)

    Jalapenos and raspberries sounds magical. And oh yes, I would be leaving the whole pepper in there. I really want a pumpkin spice cupcake now…

      Beans are good in tacos, nothing wrong with that. The quesadillas I had last night had beans, sweet potatoes, and other goodies – a very good combo indeed!

    Hello!

    I just wanted to share that I made these tacos a few nights ago, and while the ingredients sound quite odd (a few co-workers winkled their noses), the flavor was fantastic. It’s not something I would eat every day, but for a night when I want something bursting with bright, bold flavors – I would make this again!

    Best,

    Dawn
