my favorite taco recipes
So, as you may have figured out from my blog- I love tacos. Like LOVE tacos. So today, I am counting down my favorite tacos to make at home. We make tacos at least once a week around here. Many of these recipes I found on Pinterest when searching for new taco recipes.
5- Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps- These are a healthy version of tacos that we eat regularly. I am a fan of the skinnytaste recipes, and this one does not disappoint.
4- Carnitas- I made these for Bryan's birthday party last year, and since then they have been on repeat. My bestie even made them when we visited their home! I usually add a few extra chipotle peppers since we like things spicy around here.
3- Tortilla Pie- This is not a traditional taco, but it includes all the taco components. Good for a crowd! It is on the healthier side as well!
2- Taco Pizza- Again- not a taco, but it has all the taco components and we make this one all the time. Super budget friendly too! This is originally a pioneer woman recipe, but I add a can of corn (or fresh corn in the summer), and a can of rotel tomatoes with green chilies between the black beans and the cheese. It kinda kicks it up a notch- and makes it a little spicier- which is a thing in the Noel home.
1- Pineapple Chicken Tacos- I got this recipe from a sweet instagram friend. We went to her house, and she made these tacos for us and they were so good! They are a crowd-pleaser as well. I have made them for friends, taken them to friends who just had babies or surgeries. If you are looking for a recipe for taco Tuesday- look no further.
Pineapple Chicken Tacos
2 lb. chicken breasts
1 packet of taco seasoning (or you can make your own)
1 jar of pineapple salsa (trader joes is the best)
1 block of cream cheese, softened
Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Mix the jar of taco salsa with the taco seasoning. Pour over the chicken and cook on low for 6-8 hours. About 30 minutes before serving, remove the chicken from the slow cooker, and shred it with 2 forks. Return it to the slow cooker and stir in the block of cream cheese. Serve with warm flour tortillas and sliced avocado. They are the best!
