It might seem like there isn’t much more to say about tacos—because, really, what more do you need to know? They’re delicious, versatile, easy, and…well, delicious. With so many options, it might seem daunting to choose which tacos to eat and where to acquire them.
An all-time favorite taco acquisition spot is the taco truck. Los Angeles might be a taco truck haven, but you don’t need to travel all the way to California to enjoy their delicacies—just head to your local Trader Joe’s.
Below are three truck-worthy taco recipes you can make in the comfort of your own home—with only a handful of ingredients! The recipes also include steps to prep perfectly soft corn tortillas for their all-important job of transporting taco fillings from plate to mouth. You may never go back to hard shells again...
We cap it all off with a couple of refreshing cocktails worthy of those soon-to-occur summer taco nights. ¡Salud!
Flavorful Filling: Breaded Cod Fillets
$5.99 | 16 oz.
20 minutes in the oven is all you need to enjoy the crisp exterior and flaky flesh of these Fillets. They're even better when paired with sweet-and-spicy salsa and Avocado Crema.
Flavorful Filling: Soy Chorizo
$1.99 | 12 oz.
Even meat-eaters will marvel at the authentic-tasting spices in this better-for-you chorizo alternative. (The smoky grilled avocado and cool Cilantro Crema on these tacos doesn't hurt, either.)
Flavorful Filling: Fully Cooked Carnitas
$5.99 | 12 oz.
Enjoy a timeless taco truck classic with slow-roasted, citrus-marinated pork that's ready to heat and eat.
Mouthwatering Mixer: Organic Grapefruit & Ginger Splash

Gingery and citrusy: two qualities that make this twist on a traditional paloma ideal alongside any taco.
Mouthwatering Mixer: Brewed Ginger Beer
$3.99 | four - 12 fl. oz. bottles
Swapping vodka for tequila makes this mule more than worthy of a taco extravaganza.
