A collage of four taco recipes

My husband can mark his best days by those that include tacos for all three meals. Be it eggs, poultry, or seafood, he loves nothing more than for his next bite to be sandwiched within the confines of a tortilla which means new taco recipes are regularly in rotation at our house. There’s so much you can do with a taco!

It also happens to be a very conscious way of cooking. You can essentially use almost any and all ingredients that you have leftover in your refrigerator and find a way to cook them in taco form. One night’s leftovers regularly become the next day’s tacos in our house.

If you’re gluten free or paleo, you still have so many options whether it’s using corn tortillas or opting for a Siete tortilla! Keep reading for 11 of our favorite taco recipes! (It was actually supposed to be 10 but I just couldn’t choose– so many good ones!)

What’s the best ground beef for tacos?

Lean ground beef is the best beef to use for making tacos because you don’t need to drain off any fat after cooking it. There is just enough fat in the beef to make it super flavorful, but not so much to make it greasy.  Skipping the step to drain the fat makes for a quick and easy taco recipe.

How much meat do you put in each taco?

If you use the traditional size hard taco shell, or small 6-inch flour tortillas, 2 tablespoons of taco meat per taco is the perfect amount.  Serving 3 tacos per person is a good amount.

Making A Taco Bar!

  1. Start with Tortillas and Shells. Every taco starts with either a soft or crispy tortilla.
  2. Meat and Cheese. Right next to the tortillas and shells, you’ll want to place the meat and cheese. …
  3. Salsa.
  4. Extra Toppings.
  5. Add Some Heat!
