Filipino Adobo Tacos

Bring Filipino flavors to your next Taco Tuesday. Although Adobo is usually eaten with rice, in this recipe tortillas are the main star. This Filipino-Mexican fusion dish is an easy way to incorporate both flavors.


Adobo is a classic Filipino dish that is made with a wide variety of proteins marinated in soy sauce and vinegar. Whether you’re using chicken, pork, or seafood, you can follow this recipe to create a delightful side dish with your ulam. 


Begin by sauteing chopped garlic and onions with your favorite taco seasoning mix. Add your choice of ground meat, a squeeze of honey, and as much adobo as you desire. After the sauce has reduced, fold in some chopped tomatoes. Serve the adobo-y taco meat with fresh tortillas, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, chopped onions, and cheese for a uniquely delicious Filipino Tex-Mex experience. Like your tacos with some heat? Swap in our Spicy Adobo, a bold spinoff using Siling Labuyo, a Filipino chili pepper. 


This quick and easy weeknight meal is sure to please the whole family on Taco Tuesday or any night of the week. Pair these flavorful tacos with a cold Mexican beer and lime and you’ll never make regular tacos again.
