Sriracha Avocado Ten Minute Tacos

These tacos come together in a flash, and really impress with delicious fresh toppings like avocado and a vibrant kick of hot sauce!

Sriracha Avocado Ten Minute Tacos

Taco Tuesday and our Cinco de Mayo Countdown combine for today’s super quick and easy recipe! Taco night is always a major win when kids are involved (or adults in our opinion!) and a 10 minute recipe means you can have this on the table on a busy weeknight with no trouble at all. If the kids are sensitive to spice, you can easily swap out the sriracha for salsa; whichever you choose, we’re sure this will become a meal-time favorite!
