Game Day Eats: National Taco Day and NFL Sunday, Time to Celebrate

Here are Walker Sports we take our sports seriously and having  an amateur chef among our ranks, we take our food seriously as well.  That's why we are so excited to bring you our newest attraction Game Day Eats.  In this section we will tell you what we're grubbing on for NFL Sunday's Final Fours, Super Rugby Championship, and any other time we can bring food and sports into one spot. 

Hope you enjoy and feel free to share some of these recopies yourself.  

Since today is National Taco Day, we took on a full fledged taco theme for the day.  In addition, we took advantage of it being Sunday and having some extra time to cook so we made plenty of extra so we could have some food for the week to keep us going. 

Here's today's menu. 

Easy 4-ingredient Slow Cooker Tacos 
This one is crazy easy and super fun.  We made extra of this as it can be reused throughout the week for lunch.  Get the original recipe here.
A few notes, we used a Miller Lite for our beer because that was the most generic option in the beer fridge (it's fall so there's a lot of pumpkin inspired drinks currently in there). We also tossed in 1 diced jalapeno, some smoked paprika, a dash of cayenne pepper, and we served them with a bit of caso fresco.  Corn tortillas were for today but expect to see this chicken poured over brown rice with a dash of Tabasco for heat.  

Grilled Steak Tacos with with Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce
These were insanely good, and you can get the recipe for them here.  While we stuck close to the original recipe but of course we had to alter a few things to give it a Walker Sports kick.  Mainly we upped the jalapeno portion with two full peppers.  For the Chimihurri sauce we went with three limes for that extra bite to help brighten the meat.  We also chose to pass on the pickled veggie option.

That's what was going on here at the Walker Sports headquarters today.  A pretty straight forward but fun Sunday meal.  Throw in some fresh made salsa, fresh guacamole, and you got yourself one hell of a meal. 

Oh yeah, we washed it all down with a few hard ciders courtesy of Bold Rock Cider of Nelson 
County Va. 

As far as sports go, we found ourselves flipping between the Giants v. Falcons, Colts v. Ravens for the early games.  Being a DC based blog, we ignored the NFL's 4pm games in favor of watching the Baltimore Orioles sweep the Detroit Tigers.  We're finishing up the evening watching the Royals try to complete the sweep again the Angels.

Stay tuned, and we'll keep watching and cooking.
