Rio Rancho Taco

The secret to making excellent ground beef tacos is to be sure to season your ground beef well. The meat for Rio Rancho Tacos is seasoned with dry ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix, garlic powder, brown sugar and other ingredients that help it taste just like the meat found at high-end Mexican restaurants. Then, it is left to sit until Tuesday, when you can prepare your delicious tacos.

Duck Confit Tacos

Duck Confit Tacos raises the bar on elegance on Taco Tuesdays to almost its highest level, but this recipe goes together quickly.

There is no need to fear as this recipe is easy to follow and will impress everyone.

Tacos de Pollo – Mexican Shredded Chicken Tacos

Long a favorite of families in Mexico, Tacos de Pollo is a dish that your family will adore. These tacos are a great way to take advantage of your grocery store’s sale on chicken breast. You can change up the shredded cheese in these to use what you already have on hand.

Sweet and Sour Short Rib Tacos

Asian fusion meets Mexican when you make Sweet and Sour Short Rib Tacos. These are best made with ribs that have been cooked and refrigerated for a couple of days, so throw some extra in your smoker the next time you barbecue. This is a great way to prepare your tacos in your slow cooker while you are at work so that supper is almost ready when you get home.

Bacon and Queso Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast for dinner on Taco Tuesdays is easy when you make Bacon and Queso Breakfast Tacos. You may not even need a recipe when you make these delicious tacos because you combine eggs, bacon and potatoes. The secret in getting these quickly on the supper table is to use store-bought queso dip. These also freeze incredibly well, so make extras and send everyone out the door with one in the morning.

Cod Fish Tacos

If you need to watch your calorie intake, codfish tacos are a delicious way to prepare a low-calorie meal. A chili-lime cumin rub makes the cod extra flavorful.

Invite the goodness of fresh Mediterranean falafels and Korean seasonings to your next Taco Tuesday. This vegan-friendly recipe brings the goodness of sweet potatoes, cabbage, Asian pears and chickpeas to your family’s dinner table.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Tacos

Chicken Cordon Blue Tacos are an elegant take on Taco Tuesdays that you can easily prepare. The secret is to fry prosciutto and crumble it for your tacos. The second secret is to add Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard to Swiss cheese and pour over the top.

Easy Tofu Tacos

You can easily put Easy Tofu Tacos together in about 20 minutes when you start with tofu crumbles.

Apple Pie Tacos

No one will blame you if you sample Apple Pie Tacos while getting them ready to serve your family. While it is easy to make your filling with fresh apples, this recipe works equally well with canned apple pie filling.
