Spicy Thai Peanut Kale Tacos

These tacos were AMAZING. Simply put. Veggie filled corn tortillas with a spicy kick peanut sauce. A must try for a Thai inspired twist on taco night.

When sautéing veggies start with onions then carrots, then peppers, and end with kale. If you do it in this order it ensures the more fragile veggies do not burn! The kale will be done when wilted and will decrease in size significantly so add more if you wish, the limit does not exist on how much kale you can add.
