Chipotle Beef Tacos

Chipotle Beef TacosThis is not your typical taco. The tang of Ontario chipotle roast beef plays nicely with the fresh taste of cucumbers, avocado, red onions and cool, crisp radishes.

1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
4 radishes, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp (2 mL) coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) minced red onion
1 tbsp (15 mL) cider vinegar
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar
8 6-inch flour tortillas, warmed or grilled
1/4 cup (50 mL) chipotle BBQ Sauce
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
1/2 lb (225 g) sliced Ontario deli roast beef

Garnishes (optional):
1/4 cup (50 mL) cilantro sprigs
4 lime wedges

In bowl, combine cucumber, radishes, salt, pepper, red onion, cider vinegar, olive oil and sugar until well blended. Let sit for 10 minutes and up to one day.
