We have taco night pretty often. They’re easy to make and inexpensive, plus who doesn’t love a taco? I try to change them up, varying the types of meat and fillings I use. Last week I decided to try puffy tacos: tacos in a fried shell.
I’ve had puffy tacos at Mexican restaurants, but this was my first time making them at home. I used this Martha Stewart recipe (for the beef and shells), but I used flour tortillas instead of corn. It took a couple of oddly shaped tortillas before I got the frying technique down, but otherwise they were easy to make.
What goes better with tacos than a margarita? I tried The Best Margarita You’ll Ever Have recipe from A Cup of Jo. While it wasn’t the best I’ve ever had (Ponak’s in Kansas City holds that title for me), it was pretty good!
Do you have taco night at your house?
