Wonderful Taco Recipes To Try At Home

Wonderful Taco Recipes To Try At Home

If you are looking for a meal to make that is quick, easy, and delicious, you can’t go wrong with tacos. Most people tend to buy the taco kits at their local grocery stores. But, this is a meal that you can really get creative with, and after a while, you will likely come up with your own favorite recipe and you won’t need to use the kits at all (unless of course you happen to be craving the flavor that you can only find in a taco kit). Here are some delicious taco recipes you will want to try.

1. Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

    Did you know that you can make awesome tacos in your slow cooker? This means that making them is going to be easier than ever. You only need a few ingredients to make this delicious taco filling, and then you simply put it into heated shells and serve. Cook chicken with beer, salsa verde, and your own favorite spices, and you have a terrific meal the whole family will love.

    2. Steak, Poblamo, and Mushroom Tacos

      Here is a really interesting take on the traditional taco recipe. Instead of a taco shell, you will be using small chunks or strips of lean steak, and filling it with mushrooms and poblano for something really different and delicious. This is an awesome taste sensation that you just have to try.

      3. Breakfast Tacos

        Have you ever thought about having tacos for breakfast? All you have to do is substitute traditional taco fillings for breakfast ingredients. Fill the shells with scrambled eggs, veggies, hash browns, and cheese, and you have a healthy and delicious breakfast that will be a nice change from cereal and toast, and it costs less than going to a restaurant to have a traditional breakfast that would include the same items.

        4. Jamaican Jerk Chicken Tacos

          Everyone loves Jamaican jerk chicken, so just imagine how delicious it would be in a taco shell. These are made using two shells, one hard shell and one soft. It is best to put the ingredients inside the hard shell, coat that shell with cheese or a bean paste, and then stick the soft shell to the outside of the hard one.

          5. Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos

            Sweet potatoes have become hugely popular, and can be used in just about any dish, including tacos. This particular dish combines sweet potatoes, goat cheese, and black beans for a unique flavor and texture. You can use either a soft or a hard shell, depending on your preference.

            6. Fish Tacos

              Another interesting take on the traditional taco is the fish taco. Instead of ground beef, use flaked fish (any kind). Don’t forget to add some fresh mango-margarita salsa to give your tacos an extra flavor kick. Chipotle sauce is another option, and it will add a bit of spiciness to the dish.

              7. Flatbread Tacos

                Who says you need to use taco shells to make tacos? Another option is to use flatbread (flattened dough made with flour, water and salt), and it will take your tacos to a whole other dimension. The flatbread will give tacos a unique texture, and you can add traditional taco fillings, or go for something different, such as a combination of chicken, bacon, and chipotle cream sauce.

                8. Veggie Tacos

                  Vegetarians can enjoy tacos too, and there are plenty of ways to turn this dish into a vegetarian one. If you do want a meaty texture in the filling, use tofu, which will soak up the flavors of all of the other items that are cooked with it. Add some zucchini, mushrooms, and onions for a delicious, meat-free meal.

                  How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                  How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                  As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

                  “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

                  When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

                  Advertising

                  Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

                  We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

                  But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

                  So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

                  It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

                  1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

                  Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

                  2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

                  This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

                  You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

                  3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

                  This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

                  4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

                  How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

                  So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

                  If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

                  And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
