If we talk about tacos for Christmas, it refers to the traditional Mexican dish which is being made from corn or wheat tortilla fold around filling.

Here, we discussed below the best tacos for Christmas-

Baja Shrimp Tacos with Creamy Slaw

Briny shrimp, full-bodied hot sauce and a creamy crispy slaw come together to make a taco filled with texture and flavor. We love to use both red and green cabbage for a colorful slaw, but feel free to choose any one of them. If we talk about Mexican hot sauce, we like Valentina or Cholula but if you don’t find these options for Sriracha rather than Tabasco or Crystal which are thinner and more vinegar. You can use a gas stove flame to make a nice char on the tortillas. To do this, place a tortilla on each burner which is set on low heat. Use pinchers to flip them when the bottom of tortilla starts to char.

Beef and Pineapple Tacos

When fried or grilled, pineapple chunks take to a richer flavor that is a little bit sweet and a little bit tart. Scoop a lenient serving atop dried steak (don’t forget to dredge coriander and lime juice) for a surprisingly fresh taco.

Grilled Chili Shrimp Tacos

A homemade chili paste is very easy to make- garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, oregano, olive oil, and pepper- but delivers it boldly, smoky taste that pairs beautifully with a sweet and spicy pineapple-jalapeno salsa. Grill the tortillas well before filling to add char and make them more malleable.

Scrambled Egg Tacos

Mix the things up to serve tacos for breakfast or breakfast tacos for dinner. Here the toasted tortillas hold the creamy scrambled eggs instead of ground beef. Sliced avocado, salsa, cheese, and coriander round out the meals. For extra special treat which will love by the whole family, serve with breakfast potatoes.

Shredded Pork Tacos

A slow cooker or a Dutch oven ascertains pork shoulder becomes fall off the bone tender and supremely flavorful if it cooks slowly and low. Stowage the warm tortillas with a lenient serving of pulled pork and then add your favorite toppings-coriander, sour cream, salsa, radishes and many more to make it attractive.

Steak and Plantain Tacos

Plantains (a member of the banana family, but they are less sugary and starchier, it means that when they are ripe, they will remain green in color). Plantains can easily be found in the produce section of any grocery store. So, the slightly sweet potato like the texture of the plantain provides you the perfect magnification of the tangy cabbage slaw.

Steak and Roasted Carrot Tacos with Avocado

Sour cream clotted avocado slices, and lime gives a cool, crispy contrast to the warm, smoky crunch of the caraway-spiced carrots. A few rame of water-cress, leafy green with a slight bite, add some extra punch of nutrients.

Vegetarian Tacos with Goat Cheese

Chili-spiced tofu, which is dried until get crispy around the edges and golden-brown color, add staying power to the taco brimming with vegetables. Add the crumbled goat cheese for the time in which the rest of the ingredients are still warm, so it becomes creamy and nice.

Salmon Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

If you prefer to have a slaw with bold taste, prepare this part of the recipe first. That’s the way the cabbage takes more time to get soften and the flavors also take more time to get developed. Top each fish taco with a lenient serving of the tangy salad.

Bass Tacos with Grapefruit Salsa

While the tortilla is made with 100% corn, tacos can make for a tolerable gluten-free meal.  Here, the corn tortillas are filled with an undetermined but incredibly delicious in taste with the combination of coriander-spiced white fish, sliced grapefruit, diced avocado, and onion.

Turkey-Chorizo Tacos

Spanish chorizo, a sauce made from smoked pork and red pepper that is matured with chili and paprika, make these tacos ideal for someone who likes a little heat. Inclusive a bit of ground turkey to add bulk, without the extra fat and calories.

Mushroom and Corn Tacos

These tacos are earthy, toasty, and almost meaty thanks to umami-rich mushrooms. In fact, it’s one of those recipes you can serve to meat-eaters, and they won’t miss a bit of the beef. Though a cast iron skillet isn’t essential, it is great for charring the corn and cooking the mushrooms. Finishing the tacos with raw white onion, leafy green coriander, and doddering red chili pepper really makes the tacos pop with color. For best results, try to find large shiitakes (smaller ones will cook before they turn brown).  Any extra mushroom mixture can be added to an omelet or scattered over pizza.

Butternut Squash and Bean Tacos

This nutrient-dense taco is filled with an undetermined combination of ingredients, but the pair of butternut squash and black beans surprisingly well together. The rich, earthy flavors of the combo are complete by the zesty bite of the red onions and the creamy goat cheese.

Seared Salmon Tacos with Sriracha Mayo   

Mix up taco night by giving fish tacos a little Asian temper. Salmon marinates in a mixture of soya sauce and brown sugar for just 10 minutes before it is cooked on the stovetop. A spicy Sriracha mayo balance out any residuary sweetness from the marinade (a liquid solution in which you soak foods, particularly meats, before cooking).

Citrus-Marinated Steak Tacos

A marinade of garlic, vinegar, lime juice, and red pepper infuses skirt steak (a fatty, quick-cooking cut of meat) with bright and zesty flavors. After marinating it for an hour, grill the meat until it gets charred and medium rare, then top it with chunky avocado-lime salsa.

Pork and Pinto Bean Enchilada Tacos

The recipe of Pork and Pinto bean Enchilada tacos combines Two Mexican favorites that are enchiladas and tacos, to make one delicious meal. Cumin spiced bites of pork which are smothered in a green enchilada sauce become golden brown and topped it with pinto beans, sliced red onion and crumbled it with cotija cheese.

Chorizo-Zucchini Tacos

In spite of having a short ingredient list, this taco is especially complex. Chorizo loads a punch with a paprika-spicy kick, sweet onions and garlic add a likable edge and hardly cooked zucchini gives fresh summer flavor. There is a ton of color and texture, to make this recipe a fabulous option for entertaining. We can also use yellow squash as a substitute for zucchini. The quick pickled onions will keep for about a week in the refrigerator. If you have some extra time, we recommend doubling the recipe because they are a fantastic accompaniment to a charcuterie board, sandwich, or burger. You can also use the same recipe to pickle other thinly sliced vegetables like okra, turnips, radishes, or cucumbers.

Skirt Steak Tacos with Greek Salsa

Recently made pickle of onions (just let them get poured well in the vinegar for few minutes) is tossed with Persian cucumber, sliced grape tomatoes, and spices to make a topping that is bursting with fresh summer flavors. Spiced steak and shattered Feta complete the Greek part and Mexican meal also.

Blistered Tomato Salsa and Roasted Chicken Thigh Tacos

Tomatillos, a green miscellaneous of tomatoes stored in a papery husk, having a sourer taste than their red counterparts. Broiled the tomatillos to make a char that gives the output of salsa has a slightly smoky taste. A dollop sliced chicken will have the whole family asking for seconds.

Beetroots and carrots are chopped as matchsticks and then tossed it with parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, and spices to make a slaw like you have obviously never tasted before (but will make over and over again). Splatter it on white fish to add a tasty crunch to each taco.

Chopped Cheese Tacos

Chopped cheese sandwiches came into the trend recently, but if you haven’t heard about them, here is a prompt explained about it. Ground beef, onion, and bell peppers are frequently cooked together on a griddle, chopped up, covered it in cheese and stuffed it into a toasted hoagie roll with some chopped lettuce. Here are more ways to think about them: the Philly Cheese Steak meets the streets of New York. We thought this trend was too kind and delicious to ignore, so we turned it into a taco for you. Serve it with a cold Modelo or any other type of Mexican soda.

Grilled California Fish Tacos

Battered and fried fish tacos are certainly delicious (we’d be hard pressed to turn them down) but the whole frying part can be a drag to pull off at home on a sweltering summer day. Not to mention that deep-fried foods and bikini season don’t always go hand in hand. That’s why these super cool Cali-style tacos, made with firm grilled white fish, might be the ideal taco for summer. Swordfish, mahi-mahi, halibut, snapper, or tilapia would work swimmingly in this recipe. A whole half avocado per serving adds irresistible creamy flavor, and grilled scallions take each tortilla over the top.

Slow-Cooker Pulled-Pork Tacos

If we think about the cocoa powder in tacos, it sounds different. The pantry staple for baking, that the cocoa powder is actually the secret ingredient in this dinner time favorite. The cocoa adds a rich deepness and umami flavor to the pork, as long as it cooks in the slow cooker. Once it has been done, the meat will be easily shredded. It is one of the finest option available in the market.

Creamy Rajas and Greens Tacos

Tasty taco doesn’t always mean that it is filled with meat. In fact, we’d argue that this purely vegetarian option is just as rich and satisfying. Made from hearty fried chard, thinly sliced crunchy radishes, and salty cotija cheese, it gets a lot of flavor from charred poblanos. Broil them in one batch on a sheet tray just until they’re blistered, and gently peel away their outer skin. The results will be irresistible and smoky. Finally, a quick homemade queso sauce, basically a béchamel (a type of sauce) with Monterey Jack cheese mixed in, tips this recipe into the realm of  thetruly indulgent.

Crispy Chicken Skin Tacos

There are only a few ingredients in this recipe so we recommend buying the highest quality chicken you can find, whether it’s a free-range organic bird or a kosher chicken. Starting the chicken on the stove in a cast iron skillet ensures that the skin turns deeply golden brown and crackly. Skin-on boneless chicken thighs aren’t always available at the supermarket. If you can’t find them, ask your butcher to debone them for you or simply run a paring knife along the bone and pop it out yourself (it’ll take just a couple of minutes). In a pinch, use store-bought salsa verde—although taking a few minutes to make it yourself adds unbeatable fresh flavor.

If we talk about tacos as a dish for Christmas it filled us with more excitement because it is the dish which is liked by everyone because we can make it as a vegetarian and non-vegetarian both. Tacos are just very easy to make, one of the favorite meals, and a cheap weeknight dinner. There are various other options also being available that can be served during the Christmas night.
