Whether you’re planning a casual dinner with friends or huddling around the TV for game night, we’ve got recipes for fun drinks, homemade tortillas, and intensely-flavored savory fillings—everything from chicken to chorizo—that’ll make your taco party one you won’t want to end.

  • Recipe

    Fresh Corn Tortillas

    Tender, flavorful, homemade corn tortillas are worlds apart from their store-bought counterparts, and they make any taco taste better.
  • Recipe

    Grilled Tamarind Chicken Tacos

    In these tacos, chicken thighs are marinated in sweet-sour tamarind soda, garlic, and soy sauce, and then rubbed with a coriander-chile spice rub. The tacos are great garnished with chopped red onion, avocado slices, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
  • Recipe

    Yucatecan Grilled Fish Tacos

    These bright, spicy tacos get their authentic flavor from a mixture of orange and lime juices (to replicate the bitter oranges grown in the Yucatán) and herbs and spices like Mexican oregano and annatto.
  • Recipe

    Steak Tacos with Cucumber-Avocado Salsa

    For this dish, you’ll fill warm corn tortillas with slices of succulent spice-rubbed steak, crunchy red cabbage, and cool, creamy avocado salsa.
  • Recipe

    Tacos with Pork in Green Sauce

    The acidity of the tomatillos beautifully balances the fat of the pork shoulder, so when serving the tacos there is no need for lime wedges. The onion and additional cilantro provide crunch and fragrance.
  • Recipe

    Baja Fried Fish Tacos

    A creamy lime-chipotle sauce gives these crispy tacos a bit of smoky heat. Radishes and cabbage are common garnishes on many Mexican foods and add a nice, fresh crunch. A mild fish like tilapia is the perfect vehicle for a beer batter.
  • Recipe

    Asian Tuna Tacos

    Here, tuna steaks are seared with a sesame seed crust and served with a wasabi mayonnaise, chopped scallions, and cilantro or the more exotic radish sprouts.
  • Recipe

    Tequila-Champagne Sangria

    The sparkling wine and soda in this white sangria give it a gentle effervescence, rather than a fierce fizz.
  • Recipe

    Chorizo & Potato Tacos

    These tacos are an easy and satisfying meal any time of day, including breakfast or brunch.
  • Recipe

    Handmade Flour Tortillas

    Be forewarned: Once you see how uncomplicated it is to make these light and tender tortillas with soft, flaky layers, store-bought tortillas may not taste the same ever again.
  • Recipe

    Grilled Vegetable Tacos with Cilantro Pesto

    Zucchini and the Mexican squash called chayote make up the vegetarian filling for these soft tacos. If you can't find chayote, substitute additional zucchini and yellow squash.
  • Recipe

    Shredded Brisket Tacos with Chipotle Dressing

    This luscious, spicy taco filling is based on salpicon, a shredded or chopped cold beef salad popular in Tex-Mex cuisine.
  • Recipe

    Beefy Chelada Cocktails

    This Chelada uses chilled leftover beef broth from the Shredded Brisket Tacos. It may sound crazy, but it's a delicious and refreshing drink that goes perfectly with tacos.
  • Recipe

    Lobster Tacos with Mango Salsa

    The sweet and spicy salsa enhances the sweetness of the lobster meat in this super easy taco.
  • Recipe

    Skirt Steak Tacos with Spicy Sour Cream

    Ground chipotle chiles add a fiery kick to the creamy sauce for these tacos, and you can find them right in the supermarket spice section.
  • Recipe

    Tex-Mex Grilled Shrimp Tacos

    Soy sauce, pineapple juice, and lime juice may sound like an unusual combination, but it’s actually a very common Tex-Mex fajita marinade. These tacos are excellent dressed with sliced avocado and tangy tomatillo salsa.

    Quick Turkey Tacos

    All you need is 15 minutes for these quick turkey tacos. Let your family round them out with their favorite toppings—try grated sharp Cheddar, sliced avocado, and finely diced sweet or red onion.

    The Michelada

    Fresh tacos and a cold beer just go together. Kick up that beer a few notches with a few dashes of Worcestershire and Cholula or Tabasco sauce, and you’ve got a truly flavorful duo.
  • Recipe

    Seared Scallop Tacos with Jícama Peanut Slaw

    This dish is also called “pico de piñata” because many of the ingredients—the clementines, jícama, and peanuts—are traditionally stuffed inside a piñata.
