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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
