Enjoy these top-rated Taco Recipes. Some of these have become famous like our Fish Tacos which are popular for good reason (and it might have something to do with the best Fish Taco Sauce). We love tacos in our house and our friends love our taco parties.
Taco Tuesdays are always a treat and with this roundup of our best taco recipes, you’ll definitely keep your weekday dinners exciting. Tacos are also a super-easy way to prepare dinner because once you have all of your ingredients prepped, everyone builds their own tacos. At least, that’s how it’s done around here!
Where do I start? There are so many ways to enjoy a taco, from Beef Tacos to Shrimp Tacos and even Taco Soup. If you love the flavor profile of Mexican Tacos, you’ll find many new favorites below. I’m also including all of my favorite homemade taco toppings and fixings below. You won’t want to miss them!
Beef Taco Recipes
Beefy tacos are so satisfying and they keep you feeling good because they are protein-packed. You can use different cuts of beef for tacos, from Grilled Steak to ground beef.
These Shrimp Tacos are a must-try – loaded with plump juicy shrimp, crisp cabbage, avocado, cotija cheese, cilantro and a lime crema sauce that will win you over. We serve these over toasted tortillas.
These fish tacos are a yummy mouthful and you won't be able to put them down. This was inspired by the famous fish tacos at Coconut's Fish Cafe that we tried twice in Maui. It's a copycat recipe except for the shrimp part. Since it's really hard to come by fresh Mahi and Ono in Idaho, we chose shrimp. To be honest, I think I loved the shrimp more; not a hint of fishiness and perfectly seasoned with a subtle spicy kick. This recipe makes 6 towering juicy shrimp tacos.
Chicken tacos are the easiest in my opinion because you can use leftover chicken and chop or shred it into chicken tacos. Slow cooker shredded chicken is also delicious for making tacos.
Pork Carnitas are crispy on the outside with a juicy center. It's so easy to make authentic Mexican pulled pork in the slow cooker.
Tostadas are like an open-faced taco and since they have all the traditional flavors of tacos that you know and love, we couldn’t help but include them in this list. As with tacos, the beauty of Tostadas is you can change them up any number of ways with toppings and protein.
Homemade Tostadas will make your tastebuds dance! They are so simple to make, super versatile and provide so many topping options.
Taco soup has all of the flavors of tacos that you love in soup form. You can even add your favorite taco toppings. This is so easy and delicious, plus you can make it ahead and it will taste even better as the flavors meld.
The easiest homemade taco soup recipe loaded with ground beef, beans, corn, pepper and tomatoes with a homemade taco seasoning. Top soup with cheese, avocado, cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips.
Taco Salads are so fresh and inviting. We love putting taco meat and toppings over crisp iceberg lettuce and it becomes a low-carb and healthier version of the beloved taco.
Easy Taco Salad Recipe with the Best Dressing
A taco salad is basically a deconstructed taco served in a bowl. If you want to re-create a Mexican restaurant experience, serve this salad in a crispy Tortilla Taco Salad Shell for a fun twist.
A great taco bar is all about the toppings. Here are some of our go-to taco toppings for the ultimate taco party. If I had to pick favorites, it would be Guacamole and Pico de Gallo. Sometimes all you need is a little diced onion and cilantro.
Pico De Gallo is a popular Mexican salsa that's loaded with fresh tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice. Pico De Gallo is excellent over tacos, burritos, nachos, or served with chips.
I hope you discover many new favorite taco recipes in this list. It’s so hard to pick a favorite but if you’re curious, the tacos that we make the most often would have to be our Famous Fish Tacos. Those are definitely a crowd-pleaser and we never have leftovers.
