38 Taco Tuesday recipes, more than you can poke a stick at! Plus where did Taco Tuesday originate? I do a little research and explain all regarding Taco Tuesday.
No matter your taste bud preference I am pretty sure that we have you covered. Before we get to the recipes, have you ever wondered where on earth “Taco Tuesday” originated? If you are Australian, don’t live on social media, you probably have never heard of it. I never knew it was a thing until Instagram, and my life revolves around food!
An American fast food chain called Taco John’s coined Taco Tuesday. Head to their website and they proudly state “Ever heard of Taco Tuesday®? We started that. We even trademarked it. That’s how seriously we take tacos”.
Taco John’s trademarked Taco Tuesday in 1989. In perfect American tradition they aren’t afraid of suing restaurants that don’t comply with a cease and desist letter if caught using the term in the USA. But only in 49 out of 50 States, as they don’t own the trademark in New Jersey.
But in Taco John’s defence, if they don’t actively protect their trademarked “Taco Tuesday”, they could loose it. Which means they will have no trademark claim and it would become a generic term for all to use.
