The day after I hosted a braised beef taco party I saw an article in The New York Post declaring tacos the "it" comfort food of the year. Did they get the scoop from my party? I wish! Taco trucks, Korean tacos, taco menus. Have you noticed tacos lately? I can't say I have, but, then again, I did just make them last week. Last week also marked a surge in the spaghetti taco trend, an idea that launched on a kids tv show (iCarly, for those of you who don't watch Nickelodeon) and quickly spread to the dinner table. Really, it's just spaghetti served in a taco shell. Kids (and the parents who make their food) seem to love it! Personally, I think tacos are a great party food -- the do-it-yourself toppings give everyone a customized meal -- and they are inexpensive to make. You can dress them up by using duck or lightly fried fish or keep them low key with ground beef and homemade taco seasoning. I love the occasional late night stop at a taco truck and I'm psyched to try Korean tacos. I was sold on the trend before I even realized it! Do you think tacos will beat out cupcakes and sliders as the comfort food of 2010?
