Taco Tuesday!! My fav taco recipes

This post has nothing to do with crafts, clothing or nails lol. Well, maybe you can say it's crafting recipes lol. It's Taco Tuesday and I thought I'd share my favorite taco recipes today!

My family LOVES tacos and would eat them every day of the week if I made them lol. Personally, I've always hated tacos - I know, weird. I've tried so many times over the years to like them. They always smell so good, and putting all of the toppings together, they look so good! But, I just never liked the taste. However, I made them all the time when my kids were growing up, as I said they all loved them.
Awhile ago, I came across a recipe for Carne Asada and it looked tempting. The ingredients looked appealing, not the 'typical' taco seasoning. So, I decided to give it a try. Thank God I did! I LOVE them!!
Here's the recipe I use ...

Once I discovered how much I loved this recipe, I decided to put my search skills to the test to find a chicken taco recipe. Boy, oh boy did I luck out!! I found one, and with a little tweaking I absolutely LOVE it!! So, here's my Margarita Chicken Taco recipe that I use ...
One thing I did realize (aside from not liking traditional taco seasoning lol) is that I don't like hard shell, and prefer soft flour tortillas. Also, cooking the flour tortillas is key for me. I don't care for out of the package, microwaved, or crunchy/overcooked ones. So I put a little olive oil on my flat griddle (that fits over 2 burners of my stove) and heat them up that way. Also, after I warm up one side of the tortilla and flip it, I add the shredded cheese to the tortilla and let it melt a little. To me, it makes a big difference! 

My husband and I love these 2 recipes! So much so, that I make 1 every week lol. One week we'll have the steak, and the next week we have chicken. And since our kids are grown and out of the house, it's just the 2 of us. So we always have leftovers for another night! That takes care of 2 nights every week that I don't have to come up with dinner ideas lol.

Are you a taco lover? Let me know in the comments. As always, if you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
