3 Easy Taco Recipes for Faster Weeknight Meals

  |     |   Food and Drink

TacosTacos are one of the easiest meals to put together at the end of a long and draining day. Plus, they're a good way to use up the leftover vegetables, cheese, and sour cream you no doubt have in your fridge. But before you reach for a taco kit you can find at the store, consider a few recipes that are just as easy and likely a lot more satisfying. 

Easy Beef Tacos 

The proof of this recipe is in its name, and few things will taste more satisfying when you're famished. The flavor in these tacos is brought to you by the Mexican tomato soup you'll use to season the beef. It only takes 20 minutes to prepare (i.e., less time than it takes to call a delivery driver). You may even have enough time to make dessert.

Shredded Chicken Tacos 

Ground beef is one of the easiest things in the world to brown and serve, but sometimes it's nice to make the meal a little lighter. Luckily, you don't have to compromise convenience with this recipe. The shredded chicken in this meal doesn't require a slow cooker to make, so you'll have tender, flavorful chicken in just minutes. All you have to do is simmer the chicken, shred it, and then add a few spices to the mix. Then put it in a taco shell and add your favorite toppings! 

Shrimp Tacos 

Shrimp is not only delicious when combined with traditional taco seasonings, but it's also a great way to mix up your standard taco night. You can cheat on this recipe and use store-bought seasonings and salsa, but make sure to add the garlic and lime juice for some extra flavor dimension. This is a perfect pick-me-up when you're starting to feel a little down about all the cold weather outside.
