RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -Taco Tuesday is honored every week, but if you are staying in because of the weather and want to make your own, Chef Jonathan Chapin from Reno Recipes is making it easy by cooking up Mango Chicken Tacos with anything you can find in your pantry. The process is all about keeping it simple, with any meat you have in the house as the main ingredient, to all the toppings you can find, from fruit to spices. It only takes less than 20 minutes to make and you can make a lot.

Joining him for Tuesday’s KOLO Cooks is Will Truce from Black Rabbit Mead Company showing what drinks would pair well with Chapin’s tacos. The two will also be working together again April 12th, hosting a Guided Tasting. People can enjoy a variety of courses during the event prepared by Chef Chapin paired with different meads from Black Rabbit Mead Company. The great thing about mead, is it can go with any meal.
