- Hard Taco Shells
- Corn or Flour Tortillas
- Taco Meat (Ground Beef/Pork/Chicken/Seafood)
- Beans (black beans, refried beans)

Taco Night Tips
Make it Family Style
Set out all the ingredients and let everyone assemble their tacos just the way they like them. This also makes it easier for you!
Keep Tortillas Warm
Nobody likes a cold tortilla, you'll want fresh and warm tortillas throughout dinner and not just during the first round. The best way to do this is to wrap small stacks of tortillas in foil and keep it in the oven at a low temperature.
Sides & Pairings
While tacos are the main event, you don't want to forget about having some sides as well. Maybe a cheesy rice, some chips & dip, or even a Mexican-inspired grilled corn (click for recipe)
