Taco Inspired Recipes
It’s Taco Tuesday, everyone. The best day of the week! Time to round up all of our favorite taco inspired recipes and share.
Tacos, back in the day, were strictly hard corn tortilla shells, ground beef seasoned with red chili powder and maybe some cumin if our mom was fancy. Top with cheese you had to shred with a knuckle-busting box grater, chopped tomatoes, and shredded lettuce.
When I was a kid, we had tacos about four times a year just like that. I don’t even remember jarred salsa until the 80s, or fresh cilantro until much more recently.
Now any protein, any form of shell (or no shell at all!), and multiple variations on the basic chili powder can make a taco. Here are five taco recipes from some of our favorite food bloggers.
