4 Taco Recipes for the Weekend

Tacos are a beautiful thing. They’re as versatile as they are delicious, making them a staple in my kitchen. But there’s something about taco recipes that makes them even more enjoyable: they can be made at the last minute! Whether you’re looking for something quick to throw together before heading out on the town or want to make a party spread ahead of time, these recipes will keep your tummy happy and your taste buds dancing all weekend long.

Breakfast Tacos with Guacamole

Start with the guacamole. Begin by adding a large avocado to a mixing bowl. Next, add in 1 diced tomato and 1/2 red onion (diced). Mix until smooth and set aside; you can prepare this up to four hours in advance if you wish.

Next, make the breakfast tacos! Heat a skillet over medium heat, then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil or butter to melt. Add 3 diced bell peppers (any color will work) along with 1 sliced green onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes or so, depending on which kind of pepper you use. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate covered with foil paper or waxed paper to keep warm, waiting for your tortillas to cook through next as well!

Spicy Taco Salad Cups

If you’re looking for a healthy taco salad, look no further. These Spicy Taco Salad Cups are the perfect low-carb solution that’ll keep your diet on track while satisfying your cravings. They’re best with protein and fiber to keep you feeling full longer, and they make a fantastic meal prep option!

This recipe calls for ground turkey, but feel free to use ground chicken or beef if you prefer one over another. The spice mixture gives these tacos an extra kick without being too overpowering—it’s just enough heat, so you know it’s there without being too spicy that it isn’t enjoyable!

These Spicy Taco Salad Cups are best served with salsa on top!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

These slow cooker tacos are as easy to make as they are delicious. They’re a great option for when you don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen, especially if your other half is craving Mexican food. Just toss everything in the slow cooker before heading out for the day. And you’ll come home to a full house of delicious smells and flavors. This recipe calls for chicken thighs, but if you prefer white meat or have trouble finding them at your grocery store. Feel free to swap them out with boneless skinless chicken breasts instead!

The best part about this recipe is that it can easily be eat with any kind of salsa—chunky or smooth, spicy or mild—depending on your taste buds’ moods. We recommend serving these tacos with chilled salsa for contrast against the warm chicken filling (and because warm ingredients never mix well!).

Black Bean and Corn Tacos with Avocado Crema

This is the stuff of weekend taco dreams—a super-simple vegan taco recipe that’s packed with flavor. The combination of black beans, roasted corn, and marinated red peppers makes for a complete protein, while the avocado crema adds creaminess without dairy or oil. The whole thing comes together easily in one pot for a satisfying meal you can throw together on a weeknight or serve to friends over the weekend!
