Open Face Tacos

Tacos With a Twist

You don’t have to stick with traditional soft or hard tacos for Taco Tuesday.

You can make them open-faced by serving all your favorite taco toppings on a bed of tortilla chips.

Or you can serve them walking taco-style by putting your taco toppings into a single-serve bag of tortilla chips or Doritos or Fritos.

Both of these options would be a fun twist on traditional tacos.

Don’t be afraid to spice things up in the kitchen.

10 Minute Mexican Rice

Side Dishes for Days

No matter how you serve your tacos, don’t forget about the side dishes.

Our favorite side dish to serve with tacos is Mexican Rice.

It cooks up in 10 minutes and brings lots of flavors to your Fiesta meal.

We’re using instant rice to make things quick. When you’re in a hurry, this is a fantastic option.

Texas Caviar Black Bean Dip

Don’t Forget the Dessert

We’ve even got your dessert!

One of our favorite Mexican-inspired desserts is Cheesecake Sopapilla.

It’s got cinnamon and sugar just like the sopapillas at your favorite Mexican restaurant, but it’s served on top of a thick cheesecake filling.

We’ve also got Mexican conchas, which are inspired by seashells. You’re going to love these colorful pastries.
