Favorite Taco Recipes

Tacos are always a hit in our family; however, you can only fix regular tacos so many times! So we’ve worked to take the flavors of the taco and work them into a variety of dishes.

Below we are sharing some of our favorite taco recipes that appear on These Old Cookbooks. We have split them up into four categories – Taco Salads, Taco Soups, Taco Appetizers and Taco Main Dishes.

We shared some of these and others over on Recipes That Crock as part of the Our Best Recipe series – 8 Great Mexican-Inspired Recipes.
