surf 'n turf taco night



Are y'all sick of me talking about tacos? Never? Good!

When cooking for a gaggle of hungry hippos, tacos are my go-to. Not only is it so easy to throw together a heap of taco toppings, but everyone gets to do their own thing - carnivores, pescatarians, and vegetarians alike will leave your dinner fat and happy. And isn't that how every dinner party should end? Every taco night I've ever put together ends up different from the one before - the main topping here was roasted peppers but the time before this it was mango and beans. This taco night actually sprung out of leftovers - the shrimp and steak were from the two previous dinners and from there we just filled in the blanks. The one ingredient that cannot be compromised is a corn taco shell. None of this flour taco BS. It must be corn. Other than that, taco night is the perfect opportunity to let your culinary imagination run wild!
