Tasty Tacos

A Mexian fiesta at home

Building your own tacos can be a lot of fun because everyone gets to be creative and make their own choices! We have provided some taco recipes to help inspire you but follow these easy steps to create your own: 

  1. Select either corn or soft tortillas from the store or make your own soft tortillas from scratch as an added activity.  
  2. Choose your fillings. Having an assortment of fillings allows everyone to customize their own. 
  3. Finally, once you have your fillings, pick your toppings. Go beyond the shredded lettuce and shredded cheese and choose a couple of toppings to give it a true classic street taco taste. 
  • Tortillas

    Purchase soft tortillas or corn tortillas or make your own using our Flour Tortillas on the Barbecue recipe.
