We love a good traditional street taco, but it’s also fun to play around with different ingredients and methods of composing (that is, turn a taco into a casserole!) to create something new and inspiring. With Cinco de Mayo approaching, we put together some fun twists on the classic taco.  From zesty Bang Bang Fish Stick Tacos and spicy Korean Taco Boats with Asian Slaw to Buffalo Chicken Taquitos and Slow Cooker Cholula Shredded Beef Tacos. We even threw in a hearty Taco Casserole for good measure.
