By Cooking Panda

Taco Tuesday is upon us, and we’re here to keep your dinner easy and spectacular. From normal to wacky, here are some of our favorite taco recipes that we totally think you should try:

1. Barbacoa-Style Beef Tacos

Make the most tender, flavorful barbacoa-style beef in your slow cooker. Set it and forget it!

2. Dave’s Mocha Chicken Tacos

Make this coffee chicken in your slow cooker using any cut you want – just make sure to cook out your alcohol first. We recommend browning the chicken on the stove with a quick sear, putting it aside, and pouring the sherry (marsala wine or brandy would probably work just fine here too – if you use a drier alcohol, add a little more sugar later on) into your chicken pan.

Turn down the heat a little, and let the booze cook out for a couple minutes, until it doesn’t smell alcohol-y anymore. Then dump everything into the slow cooker and cook that sucker!

Shred it, toss it back in the sauce-filled slow cooker and let everything mingle for a few minutes, and you’ll have a super-awesome taco filling. Top with cilantro, onions, grilled chilies, cream – whatever floats your boat.

3. Dave’s Mexican Veggie Tacos

Is this the same Dave from the Mocha Chicken? We don’t know, and we’re full of questions! One thing’s for sure — people swear these are the best veggie tacos ever. You be the judge.

4. Chicken Mole Tacos

Mole always requires a lot of ingredients and a ton of work, but this slow cooker sauce really cuts down the amount of time you need to spend to get something super delicious and rich. Do your chopping, sauteeing and blending ahead of time (you can even make a double batch and freeze half), and the rest is just a matter of slow cooker magic.

5. Crispy Potato BLT Tacos #SP5

Have you ever tried stuffing your tacos with crispy potatoes and bacon? If not, you need to do this now! For a vegetarian twist, try these.

6. Peanut Butter Steak Tacos

Sounds crazy, but savory peanut butter, cilantro and sriracha make for a totally awesome steak sauce. Trust us.

7. Taco-Filled Pasta Shells

Like many of these other recipes, labeling this pasta dish as a taco is a major stretch. But honestly these shells are just super delicious and we want you to be happy, so we’ll call them tacos, because they deserve your attention.

8. Curried Turkey Tacos

Curry powder, black beans and salsa go perfectly with the ground turkey and give it a unique flavor kick, especially when you’re tired of the same old ground meat with taco seasoning.
