Starting Your Taco Tuesday

Starting YOUR Taco Tuesday Tradition

Starting your own Taco Tuesday can be a new and fun tradition to start with your family and friends. Here are 5 tips that will help you score big every time. 

1) Prepping Is Key

This may be overstating it a little, but, the easiest way to ruin Taco Tuesday is to do everything last minute. Make sure all your toppings are chopped and ready before you fire up the griddle. This will ensure that as soon as your meat and other fixings are done cooking, you can serve it while it's hot. 

2) Sauces & Seasonings

With everything that goes on a taco, it is important to have a good seasoning or sauce to help it stand out from all the other tacos you've hade.

Here are a few of our favorite sauces and seasonings:

3) Veggies

Don't skimp on the veggies when picking out your produce. To give your tacos an extra boost of flavor, make sure you select fresh vegetables. It might be a good idea to look at what your local farmer's market has available. Here are a few veggies to try on your next taco:

  • Tomatoes
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Red Onions
  • Cilantro
  • Green Onions
  • Zucchini
  • Beans
  • Jalapenos
  • Green/Red Peppers
  • Banana Peppers

4) Bring Out The Meat

The meat just might be the most important part of your taco. If you want something new making tacos with fish/salmon, steak, chicken, or shrimp might be what you need.
