We can’t get enough of Taco Tuesday in our house. In fact, I think I’d be okay with Taco Week instead of just one night a week…lol!

The only problem is that serving the exact same kind of tacos every Taco Night can make you feel kind of taco’ed out. Thankfully, though, there are a TON of different ways to serve tacos – from soft-shell wraps to soups!

When you’re looking for some inspiration for your family taco night, try this list of over 55 unique tacos and taco inspired recipes! You’re sure to find several ideas that you and your family will love on Taco Tuesday or any night of the week!
