National Taco Day is here! Celebrate with our favorite taco recipes!
Barbacoa Beef Cheek Tacos
The beef cheeks, marbled and melting after more than three hours in the oven, absorb the spices, coffee, chile and peanut butter from the marinade and sing with the freshness of the lime juice in which they’re braised. Add a warm corn tortilla, some addictive pink pickled onions, a slab of avocado, and a fistful of cilantro leaves, and you’ve got an epic taco. Make sure to save any leftover onions! We’ve used them on toasts with smoked salmon, in watercress salads, and on top of burgers.
Skinless turkey thighs and drumsticks are packed with flavor; they're also low in fat and high in protein and essential minerals like selenium. In this recipe, braise the meat in beer until ultra tender, then shred it for tacos.
These tacos are a great way to eat heart-healthy salmon. Top the fish with crunchy cabbage - a traditional taco garnish that has all kinds of vitamins and minerals, like vitamins A and C and calcium. The tangy apple-cucumber salsa is juicy, crisp and full of fiber.
For a bit of fusion try these Korean meets Mexican tacos. The spicy, pickled flavor and crunchy texture of kimchi, the Korean cousin to sauerkraut, is just right on these Korean steak-and-mushroom tacos. Serve with steamed brown rice and sautéed bok choy with chili-garlic sauce.
