13 Taco Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo would not be complete without some tasty tacos at your fiesta! Enjoy any one of these 13 different taco recipes for the holiday, for #tacotuesday, or any occasion really. I mean, let's be honest, do we need a reason to eat more tacos?

Whether you like traditional carnitas or not, we've got a bunch of different taco recipes for you to try!

Not every taco needs jalapeƱo and salsa. Tacos come in all shapes and sizes, flavors, and ingredients. Sure, I'll take a taquito any day and load it up with some salsa verde. But sometimes I want a different flavor palette and want to enjoy my tacos in a different way. I figure what better day to have some fun and explore different tacos recipes than Cinco de Mayo! 

Below you'll find taco recipes inspired by Southwestern, Korean, SoCal, and other kinds of cuisines (including this sweet potato taco with avocado salsa from The Rustic Foodie featured above)!
