Whether you use your favorite store-bought crunchy taco shells or the delicious homemade tortillas (get the recipe), check out these tips for an unforgettable taco night at home:
Tip 1: Pick your proteins: swap in shrimp, fish, steak, chicken, pulled pork—or make them all and plan for leftovers!
Tip 2: Sauté, bake, or pickle vegetables such as butternut squash, potatoes, and mushrooms.
Tip 3: Speaking of pickling, go for an unexpected topping such as pickled onions. Check out how to pickle, here.
Tip 4: Once you fill your crunchy taco shell with meat and cheese, bake it for about 15 minutes at 350°F for a warm, melty taste. Then top with shredded lettuce, tomato and the rest of your fixings.
