Growing up, one of my favorite nights in our house was Taco Night! I like to think it was always on a Tuesday but who knows?
More often than not, my mom would make us classic ground beef Tacos with crispy shells and a variety of toppings. It was always so much fun to pile everything on and wage the war on how long you could eat the taco shell without it completely falling apart.
Nowadays, when I eat tacos, they are usually of the soft-shell variety, filled with a variety of perfectly-spiced ingredients and accompanied by guacamole, pico, herbs, and some type of green salad.
Some of my Taco standby’s are…
I also like to make this Grilled Shrimp + Corn Fiesta Salad and if you don’t already have a good recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning, now is the time to make your own and save some money!
These are not Mexican influenced but remind me of Tacos so I rotate through these a lot as well.
I have been taking it easy this week with cooking, between my freezer disaster and a bunch of personal obligations, there is just not enough time for me to spend in the kitchen. Whenever that happens, I think homemade convenience, I think Tacos.
So, tonight will be Beef + Bean Taco Lettuce Wraps. We’ll have them with some homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, cilantro and a green salad. I’m planning to concoct the salad out of whatever vegetables are left in the produce drawer.
