With the warm summer days looming just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about meals that can be quickly and easily put together to keep your family well-fed and happy. Caramel-Citrus Tacos are the perfect solution. This recipe brings together all the flavors of the season in an incredibly versatile and easy-to-make dish.

This dish is the perfect combination of sweet, sour, and savory. The main ingredients are citrus, caramel, and spices that come together to add both flavor and texture to the tacos. The tacos are served with a side of Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, and a sprinkling of diced bell peppers for a perfect summer meal.

This dish takes a total of 30 minutes to make, with minimal clean-up required afterwards. To make Caramel-Citrus Tacos, you’ll need two (2) oranges, two (2) limes, two (2) tablespoons of caramel sauce, one (1) tablespoon of chili powder, and one (1) teaspoon each of garlic powder, onion powder, ground cumin, and paprika. You’ll also need eight (8) soft taco shells, one (1) cup of Monterey Jack cheese, one (1) cup of sour cream, and one (1) diced bell peppers.

To begin making the tacos, prepare the citrus mixture. Start by zesting the oranges and limes and adding them to a bowl. Squeeze the juice of both oranges and limes into the bowl, then add the caramel sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, ground cumin, and paprika. Stir until everything is well combined.

Next, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place the taco shells in the skillet, then spoon the citrus mixture into each one. Cook on one side for three to four minutes, then flip and cook the other side. Once the taco shells are golden and crispy, remove them from the skillet and set aside.

Next, assemble the tacos. Place each taco shell on a plate and top it with some of the Monterey Jack cheese and a spoonful of the citrus mixture. Garnish each taco with a dollop of sour cream and some diced bell pepper. Serve the Caramel-Citrus Tacos alongside any remaining citrus mixture and your favorite sides.
