We aren’t sure who invented Taco Tuesday, but we owe that person indefinitely. Now, don’t get us wrong, we love your basic taco with the crispy shell, ground beef, shredded lettuce, tomato, and cheese, but what we’re really after is something a little more *chef’s kiss* if you get what we’re saying. So here are a few of our more ~fancy~ taco recipes for all of your Taco Tuesdays to come. Let’s take a look!
Carne Asada Street Tacos
Carne asada street tacos are, for lack of a better explanation, a fiesta in your mouth. Think about it warm corn tortillas, juicy, marinated carne asada steak, homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, and Cojita cheese. These bad boys only take about 20 minutes on the grill, but this particular recipe also includes instructions for making these on the stove or in the oven in case you have a craving for these when it’s too cold out to grill.

Crispy Chicken Tinga Tacos with Pineapple Salsa
Half Baked Harvest is pretty much our go-to for about any recipe, so it’s no surprise to us that they have an incredibly delicious chicken taco with pineapple salsa recipe. Oh and the best part? We would file this recipe under “weeknight dinner options” because it takes about 30 minutes to whip this up. The chicken is seasoned with smoky chipotle peppers then stuffed into crispy fried cheese tortillas, then everything is topped off with charred corn, pineapple salsa, crema, and your favorite taco toppings. Perfect for when you’re craving something spicy, crispy, crunchy, and melty. Get the full recipe here!
