This week Sunday Supper Tastemakers celebrate National Taco Day, October 4th!

Did you know that October 4th is National Taco Day? How exciting is that?! Tacos are the best. There’s so much that you can do with them, from what you fill them with to the kind of shell that you put them in! Not to mention, they’re easy on a budget and definite crowd-pleasers. So, for this Sunday Supper, let’s have a taco fiesta! Bring your best easy taco recipes to the table, and we can celebrate National Taco Day together. I want to know what you put in your favorite taco recipes!

Warm spices sneak their way into my dishes this time of year. Cinnamon is my go to warm spice. It pairs with meats, makes killer desserts and flavors drinks like no other spice can.
Mixing cinnamon with cumin, garlic, chili and salt makes a great rub for beef. Not too spicy. I used a Certified Angus Beef ® brand ribeye. Simply delicious!
I added a mild version of Pico de Gallo to get that taco taste.
Why stop there?
Kick it up a notch. Add avocado slices and lettuce.

    Cinnamon is my all-time favorite spice, you’re right it is so versatile. That said, I’ve never paired it with beef – chicken, yes. Can’t wait to try these tacos!
