9 Classic And Crazy Tacos To Make For National Taco Day


By Cooking Panda

Stop stressing over what you are going to make for dinner tonight and go get some darn tortillas. It’s National Taco Day AND Taco Tuesday, so it is written in the stars that you must shove some delicious fillings into a tortilla and promptly devour it.

We have everything you could want here when it comes to taco recipes, from addicting classics to mouthwatering fried vegan tacos to straight up delicious abominations. Try them all!

1. Grilled Steak Tacos

Flat iron steak is a great affordable alternative to flank steak, though you can use either one, or really any other cut if you want. The orange juice-chipotle marinade tastes great and will really impress a large crowd!

2. Tacos de Pollo

Easy tender shredded chicken in savory, spicy sauce. How can we pass that up?

3. Tacos Al Pastor

Technically, al pastor is supposed to be shaved off a spit, but no one has time for that, pretty much ever. Here’s a much easier option that will still give your slightly spicy, savory meat beautiful flavors and textures that go perfectly with everybody’s favorite grilled pineapple.

4. Breakfast Tacos with Chorizo, Egg and Potato

Whether you’re in a breakfast mood or just accidentally bought WAY too many eggs (does this really happen, ever?) put them to good use here for an easy and delicious brinner.

5. BBQ Cauliflower and Chickpea Tacos with Creamy Lime Slaw (Vegan)

Pro-tip: Cut down on time with store-bought slaw mix, and then whip up the dressing by hand. You can also double or even triple the BBQ rub and keep it around for the next time you want it.

6. Fried Cactus Tacos with Avocado Cream Sauce (Vegan)

If you love nopales, this recipe is for you. If you don’t love cactus or have never tried it, you’ll still probably devour this crunchy creamy dish, because it’s just that delicious.

7. Pastrami Tacos

Are you ready for something a little weird? Fry up some blue corn tortilla shells (or whatever you want) and cram them full of peppery pastrami, tangy sauerkraut, classic yellow mustard and spicy pickled jalapenos. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!

8. Pizza Tacos

Call these what you want — a tasty taco perversion, if you will. It is worth stuffing tortillas (we’d probably use crispy taco shells, personally, since the authenticity ship sailed long ago) with a savory pizza filling, complete with sweet Italian sausage, spicy pepperoni, savory mushrooms, creamy mozzarella and classic pizza sauce. Just give it a try. We won’t tell anyone.

9. Bacon Weave Choco Taco

Ready for some dessert? Why not stuff a bacon weave with your favorite ice cream and top with chocolate? You’ll love the savory-sweet indulgence. Get these started before you make dinner, since they need to chill for a while.
