The summer after our high school graduation, my best friend and I took a road trip to Texas to visit some of my family. While we were there my uncle’s wife baked us the most delicious artichoke dip. Being from the hills of northern Missouri, I had yet to experience artichokes. I have been completely hooked ever since! So, I was intrigued when I asked to work with Reese to learn more about their Reese Hearts of Palm. I knew I loved Reese Artichokes so I was excited to try their Hearts of Palm product as well.

Hearts of Palm and Artichoke Street Tacos
- 2 teaspoons of lime juice, have extra lime wedges for serving
- 1 medium clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 14 ounce can of Reese Hearts of Palm, drained
- 14 ounce can of Reese Tender Small Artichoke Hearts, drained/optional
- Six tortillas
- 1 cup of homemade or store-bought salsa
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1cup Panko crumbs
- 1/2 cup flour
In a small bowl mix buttermilk and egg. In another small bowl mix Panko crumbs and flour.
To make the marinade, combine the lime juice, garlic, thyme and oil in a small bowl.
Stir it with a fork. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the marinade on top of the hearts of palms and artichokes, if you’re using them.
Dunk hearts of palms and artichokes in the egg and buttermilk and then into the Panko crumbs.
Over medium high heat cook in olive oil until slightly browned, cooking only for approximately 2-3 mins on each side.
If you prefer, you can cook without the breading as well! I’ve shown both options below.
Heat your tortilla shell, add hearts of palms and artichokes. Top with salsa, cilantro and green onions. Serve with spicy cabbage slaw (recipe below) and lime.
Spicy Cabbage Slaw
- 1 quart of prepackaged red/white cabbage or just use one small head of White Cabbage
- 1 small onion, sliced thin
- 1 carrot, finally grated
- 1 tbsp Kosher salt
- 1 1/4 cups White vinegar
- 1/8 cup of sugar
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
In a bowl combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves. You will only use about 1/8 tsp of this mixture. Store the remaining mixture in an air tight container to use another time.
In another bowl combine the cabbage, red onion, carrots and 2 tablespoons of kosher salt. Set aside.
In a sauce pan over medium high heat combine vinegar, sugar, pepper and 1/2 cup of water and bring to a boil.
Once boiling pour the mixture over the cabbage and make sure all is submerged.
Let this sit at room temperature until cool. Once cooled, transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use. The cabbage mixture can be kept for up to two weeks in the refrigerator until ready for use.
