Taco Tuesday Recipes


Taco Tuesday is a well known saying but almost everyday may as well be Tuesday at my house.   I LOVE tacos.  I have always loved tacos but the fact that I can make them quick, easy, and healthy makes them even better.  Tacos are great for hiding veggies from your kids or husband (in some cases).   If you slice and dice the veggies up really fine they won’t even know they are in there.  Luckily my family loves tacos and will eat them often.  I make a variety of taco recipes. Here they are.

One of my favorite ways to prep my food for the week is to grill chicken breasts ahead of time.  I throw them on the grill on Sunday and have them for the entire week. I can easily use them to make tacos, fajitas, or one of my favorites, taco salad.  I throw spinach, romaine lettuce, chicken with a little taco seasoning,  fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers, onion, and cilantro and toss it.  Smashed avocado and salsa make a delicious healthy dressing.

Chicken Fajita Casserole

A very quick easy way to make a Chicken Fajita Casserole is in a Pampered Chef Stoneware.  Just slice the veggies into the casserole, set the raw, thawed chicken breasts on top, add the seasonings, and microwave for 30 minutes.  Make this casserole or the one above to your family’s liking. I actually left out the fresh onion and peppers in the recipe above.

Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken

This recipe for crock pot cilantro lime chicken is delicious.  I leave out the jalapeno peppers when my kids are eating but otherwise it has become a family favorite.

What about tacos when it gets really cold.  If you would like a different twist on tacos, throw together a Taco Soup. This is another one of my favorite crock pot meals in the winter.  I throw together chicken or lean cooked hamburger with tomato juice, taco seasoning, black beans, and my favorite veggies. I love onions, peppers, and tomatoes but you can make it to your family’s liking.

Tacos can be so delicious, quick, easy, and versatile. Tacos are staples in my family’s diet.
