First of all, can I just please share a picture of three of my favorites?? Such cuties they are!
Ok, onto the real deal now. Last night I decided on tacos for dinner, so I entitled the day “Taco Tuesday”. I had friends in college that would have “Taco Tuesdays” at their apartments or houses and invite a bunch of people over each and every Tuesday for dinner… good times! Last night’s dinner consisted of the traditional tacos with seasoned ground
beef turkey on hard shells with all the add-ins. I was feeling an easy peasy dinner, and that’s exactly what it was! Quite delicious if I do say so myself too.
I topped my
tacos tostadas with a thin layer of plain Greek yogurt (in place of sour cream), ground turkey, and my favorite salsa. Unfortunately we were out of cheese. (I always break my taco shells in half and build them like tostadas… don’t ask. 😉 ) I paired the tacos with some whole grain Mexican rice and a spinach salad. And I obviously went back for seconds, so don’t let the one taco in this picture fool you!
This got me thinking about all the many different types of tacos are out there! Just to name a few:
- Shredded chicken/pork/steak tacos
- Vegetarian tacos (made with beans, vegetables, rice, etc.)
- Fish tacos
- Soft shell vs. hard shell tacos
- Soft shell CORN tortillas vs. soft shell FLOUR tortillas
- Taco salad
- Ground beef/turkey tacos
I don’t think I ever realized how many different types of tacos are out there! I could have tacos every night of the week and enjoy a completely different combination of foods, textures, and tastes each time. (Not that I would, just sayin’.) So friends, if you’re having a difficult time figuring out what to prepare for dinner one evening, take your pick of a taco dish! There’s plenty of ’em!
P.S. There’s still time to put your entry in for the “Nutty Granola” giveaway! Hurry if you haven’t done so yet!
