My Favorite Taco Recipe

In honor of all that’s holy about tacos (Tuesday or not), I have to share our go-to recipe!

WE LOVE TACOS! (Can I just say they are our favorite food!)

Ingredients

  • Meat of your choice. (I’m using leftover chicken from last night!)
  • 1/2 red (or yellow) onion chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Tortillas…. (I prefer whole wheat flour)
  • Spices
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • Brown Meat and add in spices! Remove from skillet. Set aside. I usually set these in the oven to stay warm.

Add vegetable oil to skillet to heat. (I use 1 tsp per shell)

When oil is hot, add in tortilla, brown on each side and fold. Place on paper towel to help absorb any last oil.

Taco Toppings

  • Shredded romaine lettuce
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped onions (red and/or yellow)
  • Chopped green onions
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Greek yogurt *instead of sour cream*
  • Sliced avocado
  • Shredded Colby jack cheese

Side options

  • We had leftover corn from the cob from the evening before so I cut it from the cob and served it as a topping as well.
  • Black beans with a squeeze of lime and cilantro are delicious too.
  • Fresh bell peppers make an excellent choice to keep the meal light and not so heavy!
Time Saving Tip for Taco Tuesday
TIME SAVING TIP: Cook a double batch of meat the day before and use the leftovers to get this on the table quickly for your crew!

**ONE LAST NOTE…. These tacos are delicious with leftover pulled pork or beef roast, shredded chicken, or even venison as a quick evening meal with leftovers!**
