It's time to taco.

One of the best things about Tuesdays is the fact that it's Taco Tuesday. You know, when you stuff your face with as many tacos (however bad they are) until you can't even move or take another sip of your Margarita.

While many of us think making fresh, full-flavoured tacos is a difficult feat, you (and your hungry stomach) will be happy to know that having your own Taco Tuesday is easy. Just invite a few friends over and whip up a taco storm together.

To get you started, we've rounded up the best taco recipes. Whether you're a chicken or fish taco fan, or are vego or vegan, these recipes have got your Taco Tuesday covered.

Provecho!
