So tie on a festive apron and try out these delectable taco recipes in honor of National Taco Day on October 4. Already have plans? They taste just as good on the other 364 days of the year. Trust us.

Fish Tacos

Straight outta SoCal, these cod-stuffed tortillas topped with corn slaw are perfect for a weeknight dinner. In just 35 minutes, you’ve got delicious, low-calorie meal packed with protein. Serve with a light side dish like this watermelon and tomatillo salad.

Marinated Skirt Steak Tacos

A tangy jalapeño-lime marinade tenderizes the steak and adds some kick to this recipe. If you’re short on time, the steak can be marinated up to a full day ahead. Sides like black beans topped with cotija, jicama slaw or Mexican rice all complement this flavorful cut of meat.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos

Chicken thighs practically fall apart after simmering in the slow cooker with spices all day, for a simple dinner that’s still sumptuous. Personalize the toppings to your taste buds—sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, olives or even just a twist of lime will do.

Grilled Chicken Tacos With Gilled Pineapple Salsa

The sweet, caramelized flavor of grilled pineapple puts a tropical twist on traditional chicken tacos. Top them with melted Jack cheese and avocado crema for a flavorful meal you won’t soon forget.

Pulled Pork Tacos

Throw a pork shoulder and a few other ingredients in a slow cooker before you leave for work and you’ll come home to the mouth-watering aroma of these pulled pork tacos. Chicken breasts can also be substituted for pork.
