If you thought plant-based chorizo was a myth, your world is about to be guac’ed. Because these vegan chorizo tacos are delicious and very real. The “soyrizo” hits just the right notes of spice enhanced by the adobo creme, finished off with the added tang and crunchy pickled red cabbage. Ready in 15 minutes, but they’ll be gone in 5.

Korean Tacos

Bulgogi Beef Korean Tacos

Hapa Nom Nom

Get adventurous and merge the Mexican classic with some eastern Korean flavors. If you haven’s yet tried beef bulgogi, you should drop everything and get on cooking. The tender caramelized beef bulgogi is juicy and bursting with flavor in every bite, with the added crunch and kick from the homemade kimchi.

Wrapped up in a warm tortilla and drizzled over with some sriracha and sour cream, you're all set for your fusion feast!

Shrimp and Avocado Taco Salad

Probably the most perfectly balanced salad that’s ever been made. It’s one of these fusion dishes you won’t ever get tired of and fits any occasion. This tacolicious salad with avocado and shrimps is the definition of volume eating. It has everything you'd want: it's healthy yet flavorful, creamy but with a good crunch, zesty yet sweet. It’s a simple and filling weeknight dinner option for any taste. This salad has a delicious chipotle lime vinaigrette to accompany skillet-cooked shrimp and fresh avocado.

Say “Pie-Pie” to Tradition

EASYPEANUT-FREE

Easy Taco Pie

DrizzleMeSkinny

Who said you had to limit tacos just to one traditional form? Taco a chance with some other form of fusion cuisine. If you’ve been debating between tacos and pizza for a quick weeknight dinner, and you sort of want both, then look no further and make this family-friendly taco pie.

Loaded with taco seasoned meat and cheese, this taco pie keeps things interesting.

Crispy Baked Avocado Tacos

Crispy Avocado Tacos

Live Eat Learn

Avocado and pineapple are a match made in heaven, giving this unique taco a great freshness and creamy texture. While we’re used to eating avocados raw, don’t let that stop you from trying this breadcrumb-coated and baked version because it's definitely worth it.

Taco Soup

PEANUT-FREETREE NUT-FREE

Taco Soup

Pip & Ebby

If you thought fall and winter Taco Tuesday lacked something like chili but soupier and more taco-flavored, here is your taco soup. It's a perfect way to add variety to your fall and winter dinners. It's basically a taco in a bowl but somehow better. Don't go too crazy with cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips on top. It’s so easy to overindulge.

Taco Pasta

Beef Taco Pasta

In the Kitchen with Jonny

This taco pasta is for you hybrid food fusion lovers. Sometimes those hybrids don’t work or don’t sound appetizing at all. But tacos and pasta are a dream team of comfort food. This food combination works and is perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. It can be a one-pot taco pasta, or you can make a taco pasta casserole using the same recipe. A delicious and satisfying meal in under 30 minutes is another reason to make it.

Taco-Stuffed Peppers

GLUTEN-FREEPEANUT-FREE

Taco Stuffed Peppers

StreetSmart Kitchen

If you are trying to stay on a healthy side of crunch, swap the tortilla for a colorful, veggie “shell” with these taco-stuffed peppers. It’s a great way to keep both the crunch and the diet and add a more juicy, peppery flavor that goes so well with the taco seasoning. And feel free to top it with whatever extra ingredients you love.
