Don't Go Take-Out for Tacos

Don't Go Take-Out for Tacos


Tacos are the go-to food when dining out at southern-style restaurants — and why not? They're bite-sized vehicles for every flavour you can think of.

You don't need to go for an expensive meal out to enjoy the taste of tacos, though. One of the great things about them is how easy they are to make at home. Here are some taco dishes with restaurant-inspired flavour that you can whip up in minutes, in your very own kitchen.

Tacos for breakfast

Before you head out to your local Tex-Mex eatery for breakfast or brunch, consider a home-cooked alternative such as this delicious Breakfast Tacos recipe. It blends potatoes, avocados and radish atop tortillas with crushed chipotle pepper and hot sauce for an extra-fiery finish.

Tacos for meat lovers

Tacos are an ideal way for omnivores to enjoy a tasty meat treat. These Organic Tacos can be on the table in 15 minutes, but there's no trade-off between time and taste. Our Organic Taco Seasoning Mix will make these a healthy meal to remember, whether you go with a ground beef option or carnitas-style pork for your protein.


If you feel like chicken in your tacos tonight, we have you covered. Our Turmeric Chicken Tacos with Tomato Avocado Salsa combine turmeric-marinaded chicken with a salsa that brings you rich red tomatoes, creamy avocado and sweet red onion in one delicious combo. A little crushed red pepper brings the heat.


Seafood tacos

There's no need to shell out for seafood at a taco restaurant when you can easily make it at home. Check out this Easy Shrimp Tacos Recipe for a fast, no-fuss taste of the sea. Our Taco Seasoning Mix gives shrimp a whole new level of flavour with its evocative but simple blend of Mexican spices.


Veggie tacos

Does an aversion to meat or seafood sometimes leave you struggling with takeout options? Nothing is off the menu when you're cooking at home. We have plenty of vegetarian and vegan options to choose from that are meat-free but packed with flavour.

These Six Taste Tacos are among our favourites. They replace meat with a vegetable and grain filling that will leave you satisfied for hours. Dried chickpeas, corn, kale and farro will leave both your taste buds and your body doing a happy dance. Sweet potatoes round off a colourful concoction that looks irresistible on your plate.


Chickpeas make another appearance in our Vegan Chorizo Tacos recipe, but this time they're crumbled and mixed with our seasoning, transforming them into what looks and tastes like browned chorizo sausage. Is there anything this humble little legume can't do?

Make this vegan dish your own by dressing it with guacamole and tangy salsa. Some dairy-free sour cream will keep it vegan.


If you want tacos with a more traditional black bean filling and you want them now, then look no further than these meat-free Black Bean Tacos. They will kill your hunger instantly, and you won't have to wait more than 10 minutes to dig in. Break out some soft tortillas and fill them up with our taco-seasoned black bean filling, along with crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes and melty shredded cheese. It doesn't get any better than this.


Alternative taco recipes

Finally, here's an alternative to traditional hand-held tacos. Instead of putting food in your taco, put tacos in your food by filling this Taco Soup with tortilla chips. Complete with ground beef, beans, tomatoes, corn and bell pepper, this is the heartiest of soups. If you're serving it as a starter, keep it small — or go large, serve it as a main course, and bring a healthy appetite.


Whichever of these recipes you choose, get ready because your taco plate is about to get a serious upgrade. Whoever said that taco night only happens once a week?
