When it comes to tacos…I don’t mess around. 

I eat taco salads a few times a week and there’s always some version of fajitas going down at least once a week. Growing up my mom made tacos & burritos weekly and I guess it just stuck, and I ain’t mad about it! 😉

Here are my Top 3 Taco Recipes and 2 runner-ups! Which one is your favorite?

RUNNER UP: Taco Salad – Ditch the crispy shell or tortilla and grab a large bowl and then load it up with crisp romaine, tomatoes, ground turkey, bell peppers and a dollop of guacamole!

RUNNER UP: Chipotle Vegan Tacos – Grab some extra-firm tofu and toss it with olive oil, lime juice, cumin, chipotle powder and garlic. Let marinade 30 minutes and then cook 2-3 minutes per side over medium-high heat. Grab a cabbage leaf for your “taco shell” and load it up with tofu, avocado and salsa! Viola! Vegan tacos. 🙂
