“I hate tacos!” said no Juan ever! And that my friends, is why I’ve put together this delicious round up of my favorite tacos.
One day, going through the boring side of this blog, you know, the side that you guys can’t see. The side that sometimes looks like gobbledy gook. The side that has the numbers and stuff. Looking around, I realized I have quite a few taco recipes and I talk about tacos – a lot.
I said to myself, I said, “Self, put it all together in one spot so people can see all the glorious tacos in one place.” That’s what I did, I made a Tacos Galore Roundup so you can get slapped in the face with the biggest taco craving you ever had. You’re welcome.
Let’s get to the food – I don’t want to taco ’bout it all day!
#1 Instant Pot Carnitas – Pork butt cooked in tons of fresh ingredients, then topped with a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk and broil for crispiness!
#2 Flavor Bomb Barbacoa – Instant Pot – A quick barbacoa-style beef that’s bombalicious to feed your hungry fam!
#3 Faux Jack in the Box Tacos – Just like Jack in the Box tacos, just as delicious, but vegetarian! It’s easy peasy and a great way to get healthy things inside your screaming kids (and husband).
#4 Healthy Shrimp Tacos – My Key West shrimp, a very simple cucumber mango salsa topped off with a healthy, delicious avocado cream sauce.
#5 Crazy Delicious Pork Tacos – Yes, trust me. They are crazy delicious and crazy simple. There are no more words.
#6 Lengua Tacos – Not for everyone…but it should be! Lengua or tongue, it’s just another piece of meat. Just like a chuck or a rump. Just don’t say tongue, say lengua and your brain won’t reject it. The tenderness, the flavor – so damn good!
#7 Smoky Grilled Flank Steak Tacos – Easy smoky spices and tender flank steak come together for a perfect weeknight taco situation!
#8 Chicken Adobo and Black Bean Tacos – This taco recipe has been a long time favorite forever and for good reason. It uses leftover chicken in a wholesome, easy-to-make blender sauce, and smashed beans with adobo.
#9 Carne Asada – Flap or flank marinated in a geeked up marinade, tossed on your grill. Top with onion and cilantro, add a cold beer. Life is good.
other delightful vegetarian taco and a real treat if you’re a fan of squeaky cheese! And who doesn’t love the squeak?
#11 Creamy Salsa Chicken – The most simple 3-ingredient recipe ever! It takes mere minutes in your Instant Pot so you can whip this up anytime!
#12 Instant Pot Taco Meat – From Fresh or Frozen! – 4 ingredients, tops and you’re on your way to the “traditional” taco. And when I say traditional, I mean the kind your mom made out of a kit in a box on the stove. But better….WAAAYYYY better.
#13 BONUS RECIPE – Restaurant Style Mexican Rice – Because taco night is not complete without restaurant style Mexican rice!
#13 BONUS RECIPE DOS – Ultimate Salsa Recipe – My perfected-over-two-decades salsa!
