It is officially one of the best days of the year: National Taco Day! 

Tacos are my favorite. If I could eat them for every meal, I actually would. You can put any kind of meat you want in them. You can have a hard shell or a soft shell or you can both – at the same time. You can actually put ANYTHING you want in them. For indecisive people, tacos reign supreme.

Realistically, everyone has had at least one (okay – five) taco night(s) in his or her life. I have tacos with my boyfriend. I have tacos with my roommates. I have tacos with my family. I have tacos on Taco Tuesday – which just so happens to be today, and wait, it’s also taco day. So yes – National Taco Day is on Taco Tuesday this year. TACOS FOR ALL.

I’m not going to lie. I’m usually a plain Jane when it comes to tacos. But after searching on Pinterest for taco ideas to celebrate this great holiday, I found some awesome recipes that will make your mouth water until literally next year.

Not going to lie again, I’ve never made any of the below tacos, so we can all try them together and see how it goes.
