Why Taco Tuesday?
Taco Tuesday offers a flavorful option on an ordinary weekday, taking the mundane to something memorable. We remember, as kids, we looked forward to taco night and its ability to craft a special night with a simple meal shared with family. Additionally, the recipes we’re featuring here are easy, making dinner hassle-free and only something to be looked forward to all day.
On a more intimate note, going with themed weeknight meals offers variety and a fun ritual for your family. If you don’t often venture into this style of cuisine, this is a gentle push into the unknown. Turn it into a family journey as you learn new ways of cooking and using foods. Some of our most cherished childhood memories were made in kitchens, so we welcome you to look at Taco Tuesdays as a chance to make new, meaningful memories in your very own kitchen with the people who matter most.
