Could anything be more delicious and fun than taco Tuesday? Not much can compare to a savory and flavorful taco, especially with some different cheese and fresh meats. Yum! I recommend adding a little spice to your next meal with these tips and tricks to level up your taco Tuesday game.
Stick to Fresh Ingredients
Not much can compare to fresh veggies and meat. Plan a trip to the grocery store so you can purchase everything you need, from your taco base to the filling and toppings. And when looking for the best toppings, consider buying:
- Yellow onion
As you buy your ingredients, y’all could also consider making homemade tortillas and salsa rather than buying the packaged stuff. I love this tip because homemade tortillas packed with fresh ingredients hit the tastebuds differently, taking any taco from good to great!
Try New Recipes
While your favorite taco recipe may be safe since it always tastes incredible, eating the same thing can also get boring after a while. Flip through cookbooks or browse recipe websites for something new yet delicious. A simple addition of tropical fruit, like pineapple or mango, changes the taste while also optimizing the flavor of your taco.
Try New Ingredients
Who doesn’t love cheese? When you add this delicious ingredient to your taco, consider spreading it throughout it rather than just sprinkling a bit on top. And don’t stop there! As you set up the ingredients for your taco night, buy various cheeses: cheddar is a classic, but pepper jack adds a hint of spice.
In addition to this, you could test out how well different salsas pair with various meats. Rather than cook ground beef or chicken, level up your taco with some fresh chorizo sausage. Many taco lovers suggest trying fruit salsas, ghost pepper salsa, or pico de gallo.
Make a Taco Bar
When it comes to the best tips and tricks to level up your taco Tuesday game, my final piece of advice is to make it a blast for everyone! Set up a taco bar on the counter so the entire family can customize their taco with their favorite flavors. We all have different taste preferences when it comes to building the perfect taco, so provide plenty of options so everyone can fill their bellies with something delicious!
I always find it fun to put all the toppings and fillings in separate ramekins on the counter, so everyone has a clear view of what they have to choose. The best taco Tuesdays occur when everyone gets to eat a taco packed with their favorite ingredients.
