It's Tuesday, and that means you've made it past another dreaded Monday, and for that, you deserve a reward. Perhaps a rather tasty reward wrapped in a warm corn tortilla and topped with fresh onions and cilantro? Now, that's what i'm taco-in' about. 

The taco may be the only food phenomenon that is so special, it warrants it's very own weekly celebration we all know and love-- Taco Tuesday. But what makes it so special, you may ask? Besides being insanely yummy and easy to devour by hand in a mere seconds, we like to think it's the versatility.

So if you've been feeling stuck eating the same, monotonous ground beef/hard shell combo week after week, be sure to check out some of these super creative twists on our favorite finger food down below and unlock your true TacoTuesday potential!
