15 Tasty Taco Recipes Perfect for Taco Tuesday
It can be difficult to find quick and easy dinner options during the week when you need them the most. If you’re stumped on what to make, tacos are a great option — they’re quick, delicious, and there are so many variations. Make this dish every Tuesday for Taco Tuesday, or if you’re out of dinner options on any other night of the week, tacos are the way to go. You can go the traditional route with corn tortillas, chopped onions, cilantro, lime, and chicken, or make a taco recipe with that has some Korean flair. Sauté a protein, add toppings, and you’re all done — it’s that easy. That’s why we made tacos the theme of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).
Beer Braised Baja Chicken Tacos
Have you ever heard of a Baja chicken taco? It has the same flavor profile as a Baja fish taco, but is made with chicken instead of fish.
Slow-Cooker Pork Tacos
This is a super simple taco recipe that is perfect for busy weeknights.
Turkey or Chicken Carnitas Tacos
This is a traditional taco recipe made of corn tortillas, chopped onions, cilantro, lime, and chicken (or turkey).
Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos
This is such a simple recipe, but it’s delicious and healthy. The chicken is low in fat and provides the meal with protein as do the black beans. — 2 Cookin’ Mamas
Pulled Pork Tacos With Hard Barbecue Sauce and Apple Slaw

Ranch Chicken Tacos With Avocado Crema
What happens when you use Cobb salad as your inspiration for making tacos? You create ranch chicken tacos. This delightful dinner mash-up consists of chicken seasoned with dry ranch mix that is lighted sautéed and served in a tortilla topped with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, bacon, cilantro, and queso fresco and then drizzled with salsa and an avocado ranch crema. — The Kittchen
Baked Honey Lime Taquitos With Cilantro Lime Cream
These little taquitos are so, so good. Slice them in half, or even thirds and you’ve got great finger food for a party. The chicken is tangy, sweet, and smoky, with just the right amount of spice. As the chicken bakes, the honey helps caramelize the edges of the taquito, which just adds to the great flavor. — Chew Nibble Nosh
Easy (And Healthy!) Grilled Fish Tacos
An easy and healthy recipe for grilled fish tacos topped with a grilled corn slaw and avocado cream sauce. — Vindulge
Weeknight Chicken Tacos
What I’ve been doing is roasting my thighs on a Sunday when I have more time, shredding the meat, and having it all ready for a quick weeknight meal of amazing tacos. Makes the whole thing easy-peasy on the night you’re serving. — Love the Secret Ingredient
It’s Tuesday, and that means you’re probably thinking about tacos. (I think about them on all of the other days of the week too.) Here I make quick, easy tacos using beautifully sautéed pork chops as the main attraction. The pork is paired with an easy guacamole and sliced radishes, and is wrapped in corn tortillas (which are by nature also gluten-free). With just a few ingredients from the grocery store, you can be stuffing your face full of tacos in no time. — The Hungry Hutch
No-Brainer Grilled Steak Tacos
These grilled steak tacos were so very easy to put together. I took the liberty to take a few shortcuts. I used a store-bought garlic and herb marinade for the skirt steak. The nice thing about using a skirt/flat steak is that it cooks on the grill very quickly. While I waited 30 minutes for the steak to soak in the flavorful marinade, I turned on the grill and put the rest of the meal together. I decided to grill a few pieces of corn to use as a condiment for the tacos. You can let your imagination run wild and top these tacos with whatever you want. — Platter Talk
