Top Rated Taco Recipes

  The work of chef Richard Sandoval, this fish taco recipe comes together with just six ingredients and provides a light, easy summertime dish. We like how the fish is marinated in a classic salsa before being sautéed to perfection, and we also found this recipe is flexible enough to swap in whatever fish you’ve got on hand, like the freshly caught tuna you have sitting in the cooler after a day of fishing.

Cholula Chicken Tacos with Feta
With this week's recipe SWAT theme, feta, I decided to work the ingredient into one of my most prevalent cravings — tacos. At restaurants, I find it is hard to find a taco that is still fresh and somewhat healthy tasting, and not drowned in sauce. These tacos pack in flavor and don't pack in the extras, making them a simple, fresh, and all-season favorite.

Blackened Baja Tilapia Tacos
Nothing's better than a fish taco, and this recipe takes it to the next level. A savory blend of spices gets a little extra something from a touch of sweetness, and adds a nice crust to the fish, while a pinch of red pepper flakes awakens the taste buds. I keep the garnishes to a minimum so the flavor of the fish prevails, but all of the usuals will go great on these. Click here to see Tasty Tilapia Recipes for Any Night of the Week.

Costilla de Huevo Taco
We ditch the tortillas for something a bit unconventional here — we fry up a few omelettes (OK, more than a few) and use them to cradle perfectly braised short ribs. Cholesterol special, here we come.

Tacos have been part of Mexico's culinary heritage for more than 100 years. These folded tortillas can be stuffed with any number of fillings — with each Mexican state claiming stake to their own. Fish tacos are said to come from Baja California, Mexico's northernmost state. While the original fish taco was made with deep-fried fish, this recipe — made with sautéed fish — is a delicious and fresh version. This recipe is easily doubled, which makes it a great dish to make when entertaining a crowd.

Spicy Black Bean Tacos
Tacos! Who doesn’t love tacos? This traditional Mexican dish has certainly become a beloved American food, and it’s easy to see why. Tacos are incredibly versatile (they can be stuffed with just about anything), they’re easy to make, they’re nutritious, and, most of all, of course, they’re incredibly delicious. This recipe highlights what’s most compelling about tacos: the way humble ingredients can be assembled into something utterly satisfying. Here the pan-roasted jalapeños and spices add a lovely kick to the mellow black beans. The cabbage brightens each bite with delicate crunchiness. The avocado and cheese lend their marvelous creaminess to the whole dish. And the cilantro exudes those potent fresh-herb aromas. This is the kind of comfort food I love to sink my teeth into! How about you?

Roast Pork Tacos
By
I’ve found that some of the best food in Mexico, including tacos, is roadside — doled out from street carts, and at small loncherias, or lunch counters, often found in local markets. I first tasted one of my favorites, tacos al pastor, just outside of San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico. Similar to schwarma, spit-cooked meat brought by the Lebanese to Mexico, tacos al pastor features pork marinated in chiles and cooked rotisserie-style. For an easy home version, I roast the pork shoulder until fork tender and serve it with a variety of garnishes, including grilled pineapple. You could also add chunks of fresh pineapple to the roasting pan during the last hour of cooking. I like to serve the meat in fresh hot corn tortillas or cabbage leaves. This recipe is from A Mouthful of Stars. Click here for more information on the cookbook.

During one spring break, my family and I took a cruise around the Caribbean. While we were on the ship, my grandmother mentioned again and again how tasty flying-fish sandwiches are. We thought she was crazy to believe in flying fish! True enough, when we got to Barbados, we saw some flying fish. These fish actually jump out of the water, fly for a short distance, fall back into the water, and then do it all over again. Later that day, we visited a restaurant in a little shack on the beach. Of course we ordered flying-fish sandwiches, which were crispy, flaky, light, and delicate. Obviously, we don’t have flying fish in the United States, but those memories inspired me to create my own version of the fish dish. I wanted to take the flavors of the Caribbean and incorporate them into my own tacos.
