I’m a BIG, HUGE, GIGANTIC fan of tacos and margaritas. Austin is obviously an ideal location to fill this “obsession”. There are tacos everywhere, which of course means margaritas are offered as well; they go hand-in-hand My girlfriend’s and I in Maryland frequented Uncle Julio’s. They have amazing margaritas (love the skinny guava rita) and food (they’re really great about my gluten free needs). They just opened up a location in Austin and I am SO looking forward to frequenting.
Sometimes though it is just as nice to be in the comfort of my own home making tacos and margaritas. When I went gluten free two and a half years ago I discovered that the taco seasoning I grew up on had the potential to not be gluten free. I was bummed because I knew tacos at home would never taste the same. For a while I would just throw a bunch of seasonings and hope for the best. The tacos always came out differently, and I was never fully satisfied.
About a year ago, my good friend Kelly share a simple taco seasoning recipe that she uses. It’s so good, simple to put together, and great to keep in a jar to always have it on hand. Check it out:
I love tacos (corn tortillas of course), taco salads, enchiladas, fajitas…all of it! Usually when I’m at home, I’ll be honest, I don’t typically have a margarita. On the rare occasion that I have had a margarita it’s because my friend Maggie was making them for us. I’ll have to get her recipe and share it with everyone; they’re delicious!
Being it’s Tuesday, I’m making tacos tonight for dinner! Debating between fish, chicken and beef. We’ll see what I end up walking out of the store with. 🙂
Question: What are you favorite toppings to put on tacos?
