We’re big fans of Taco Tuesday — any excuse to enjoy these Tex-Mex treats! What makes tacos so great is that there are just so many ways to customize them, whether you prefer a soft tortilla or crunchy shell, traditional fillings or fun flavor twists. We love experimenting in the Woman’s World test kitchen and our sharing some of our favorites here. From Baja fish to BBQ chicken, there’s a variation sure to get everyone’s mouth watering. Keep scrolling to find the Taco Tuesday recipes that are perfect any night of the week!
Trick to prevent soggy taco shells
Everyone loves taco night! The only downside: The crispy shells tend to crack after the first bite, allowing the filling to drip out all over the table and floor. To prevent that, try this easy trick: Line each shell with a lettuce leaf before adding the meat, cheese and other fixings. This way, if the shell shatters, the lettuce will contain the taco’s yummy contents.
