This fun food holiday celebrates one of America’s favorite foods, the taco!
Tacos are believed to have originated in Mexico and they have been a staple there for centuries. Tacos made their way to the United States in the 1800s and they quickly became popular. Today, tacos are enjoyed by people all over the world and they come in many different varieties.
On national taco day, why not try something new and make your own tacos at home? You can use any type of meat, vegetables, or toppings that you like. Be creative and have fun with it!
Here are some recipes to get you started:
Easy Instant Pot Beef Birria Tacos
This is my take on the traditional recipe. Just as flavorful and a whole lot easier and with very little carbs!
Spicy sweet potato tacos have the perfect balance of sweet, savory & spicy. Roasted sweet potatoes and charred corn balance with mildly spicy poblano peppers and creamy avocado. Top it all off with a savory poblano cream sauce and some pickled onions.
Although the more traditional birria is made with goat or lamb, or more recently, beef, I’ve decided to change the rules a bit. I’m using less expensive chicken, which also has the benefit of taking less time to cook.
Need an easy and healthy way to use up rotisserie chicken leftovers? These gluten free rotisserie chicken tacos are AMAZING! They’re quick and customizable for a simple family dinner in 5 minutes fast!
Tacos Gobernador, aka Governor’s Tacos!! Have you ever taken a bite into these crazy tasty shrimp tacos? They are irresistibly delicious and messy to start with. They are kind of a cross between a taco and quesadilla, with crunchy inviting bites with ton of melty cheese.
