Tacos! Tacos! Tacos!
I’m about to turn up your taco Tuesdays for the next month with chances to win admission to the AZ Taco Festival and one big chance to win VIP tickets.
Let’s start with our first Taco Tuesday feature: Blanco Tacos & Tequila. They will be presenting on Saturday and I’m looking forward to seeing what they put out for all of you to try. Last year they won in the Pork and Beef taco category, clearly us judges were quite impressed!
If you don’t want to wait to try their tacos at the festival, you can experience what they have to offer during Restaurant Week or hit them up for their spectacular happy hour.
A few of our favorites from the menu are the grilled Mexican corn with cilantro, lime and cojita cheese. The braised short rib tacos topped with machaca, onions and peppers and the slow cooked bbq pork tacos with roasted corn and tomato slaw, pickled onions and creme fresca! What’s your favorite on the menu?
