Taco Recipes – The Top Ten Countdown

Taco Recipes - The Ten Best

 

Let’s be real: Taco Tuesday should really be Taco Monday, Taco Wednesday, Taco Thursday, etc. In other words, there’s no wrong day of the week to eat tacos.

We’ve got a slew of taco recipes here on the Beachbody Blog — fish tacos, shrimp tacos, steak tacos, chicken tacos, and more.

We even have an easy, all-natural taco seasoning recipe so you can skip the store-bought packets that may contain artificial flavors.

To honor the pure deliciousness of the taco, we checked the stats and came up with a list of our most popular taco recipes.

Taco Recipes – The Top Ten Countdown

Chipotle Vegan Taco

10. Chipotle Vegan Taco Recipe

9. Mexi-Cal Taco Recipe

Tofu has another starring role in our 9th most popular taco recipe — with good reason.

Tofu is a versatile and clever substitute for meat in any dish, but especially in a taco recipe — the tofu absorbs all the rich spice flavors that it’s cooked in so you can’t even tell it’s not meat.

Add in some of your favorite vegetables, whole-wheat tortillas, and yogurt instead of sour cream and you’ll be crushing Taco Tuesday and sticking to your healthy eating plan!
