taco night- my FAVE recipe

Finally sharing this highly requested taco recipe on my blog! I've been perfecting my taco game over the past few years. For a while there, I was making these every Tuesday night. #tacotuesday They are perfect when you need a quick dinner idea and the recipe is easy to double or triple for a crowd.

Over the years, I've figured out a few things that really take these tacos to the next level. Namely, the charred corn & cojita cheese! I'm seriously so proud of how yummy these are! haha it's one of the few recipes I feel really confident about making! ( you know, the safe, go-to recipe you pull out when you are having new people over) haha! I made them for a bible study a couple weeks ago & everyone loved it!

Friends and family will be impressed since these seem more over the top than your average taco! ☺️🙌🏼🌮

My fave taco recipe

serves: 4-6

watch a video of me making these here :)


I linked the ingredients here

• 1.5 lbs ground turkey (or beef)

• 1 package taco seasoning (the Siete brand is my fave & the Trader Joes brand is also a good one, but it's a bit spicier)

• 1 can of corn, drained

• soft shell tortillas (I love using uncooked white street corn tortillas! I find them in the refrigerated section at Walmart)


• guacamole (Publix brand is the best imo)

• grape or cherry tomatoes (diced)

• 1/4 cup cilantro (chopped)

• cojita cheese

• angel hair coleslaw

• 1 lime, quartered

• & any other taco toppings you like!


Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat. Once hot, drizzle with avocado oil & add the drained can of corn. Turn heat down to medium-high, season with salt & pepper and mix well. Make sure the corn is in an even layer & then cook for several minutes without stirring to allow the corn to char a bit on one side. Mix corn around again and allow to cook more to char the other sides. If corn starts to pop, turn heat down a little more. Once corn is done you can turn off the heat and set it aside with the other toppings.

While corn is cooking, heat up a skillet & brown your meat. Drain if necessary and add taco seasoning according to package. Once done, turn off heat & set aside.

While the meat and corn are cooking, dice the tomatoes, chop the cilantro, and prepare any other toppings.

Heat up another large skillet and start cooking your tortillas. (Skip this step if using regular pre cooked tortillas). I like to heat up the tortillas in a skillet, even if they are already cooked. :) You can also heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds or serve at room temp.

I like to set up everything as a taco bar so everyone can make their own tacos!

And that's it!! So easy! So yummy!


I hope you love these as much as we do!
