Charred Asparagus Tacos With Creamy Adobo and Pickled Red Onions

Meaty tacos are great, but who doesn't love charred sweet asparagus in the springtime? Cook the asparagus in olive oil until nearly blackened in spots so that you get a nice contrast between the natural sweetness and the smokiness. Top with adobo sauce and sour cream, a bright green salsa verde, or a nice roasted tomato salsa. Pickled red onions, chopped cilantro, and crumbled queso fresco or cotija cheese wouldn't hurt, either.


Ingredients

  • 2 ancho chilies, stemmed and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, finely sliced
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, grated on a microplane grater (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 chipotle chili and 1 tablespoon sauce from 1 can chipotles in adobo
  • 2/3 cup sour cream or Mexican crema
  • 2 teaspoons fresh juice from 2 limes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 pounds asparagus (green, white, or a mix), bottoms trimmed, cut into 1-inch segments
  • 24 corn tortillas warmed
  • Pickled Red Onion
  • Queso fresco or queso cotija
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Lime wedges
