Our favorite night of the week is Tuesday — for so many reasons. We love tacos, and we love tequila even more — they happen to pair well with each other, and would be perfect for a Tuesday night fiesta. We prefer to call it a fun-filled night of savory tacos and delicious margaritas.
Tacos begin with the shell of your choice — do you like flour or corn tortillas? — but what goes inside is most important. Tacos originally contained beef, but now they’re made with various meats — from poultry to pork to healthier options such as fish or tofu tacos.
Hosting people tonight could make you nervous, but don’t fret, because we have you covered. Grab your favorite bottle of tequila, whip up a banging guacamole, and serve your friends some of these easy-to-create recipes.
Crispy Fish Tacos
Easy Pork Carnitas Tacos
Carnitas, which literally translates to "little meats," is pork shoulder that has been braised for several hours until tender, then shredded and cooked again until crisp, providing you with a flavorful, juicy filling for your tacos.
Feta, Chicken, and Mango Tacos
Flank Steak Tacos
A properly cooked grass-fed flank steak, seasoned well, needs little garnish other than some thinly sliced vegetables, a couple of slices of avocado, and a dollop of crema.
It's easy to add your own special twists to tacos, and I make mine with tuna, horseradish cream, and flavored ginger oil for an exciting and unique flavor. —David Burke
