We know Thanksgiving is rooted in tradition, but wouldn’t it be nice to shake things up this year? Are you really all that excited for the same meal you’ve eaten every single November? We’re not knocking turkey and gravy, but what if you did things a little differently?
After all, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop does cater, and we’ve got a wide variety of menu items for the entire family to enjoy…
(Do we need to spell it out?)
Okay, fine. What if you had Fuzzy’s for Thanksgiving this year?
You may be thinking, “But that’s just not traditional!” Well, friend, last time we checked, the Native Americans weren’t sharing a can of cranberry sauce with the pilgrims (and certainly not gluten-free stuffing). But that’s neither here nor there.
Think about it. It could totally work. Here’s how:
Tacos instead of Turkey
Turkey is the official mascot of Thanksgiving, just like tacos are the official mascot of Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Why celebrate turkey when you’re really thankful for tacos?
Jumbo Burritos instead of Ham
If you’re the kind of family that does turkey and ham, then you can certainly be the kind of people that serve up tacos and burritos. The more the merrier, right? This isn’t a day to be shy around the dinner table.
Queso instead of Gravy
We’re really on to something here. Gravy is used in copious amounts on Thanksgiving. Now imagine pouring queso on every single thing on your plate. You’ve had dreams about this, haven’t you?
Salsa instead of Mashed Potatoes
You’re gonna need salsa and you can even use the same bowl you’d normally use for mashed potatoes. We’re on a roll now.
Chips instead of Rolls
Speaking of rolls, ditch the bread and have some tortilla chips at the ready. It’ll give you another vehicle of the aforementioned queso.
Black beans instead of Stuffing
Like stuffing packed into the turkey, your tacos (and burritos) will be stuffed with black beans. If you really need some logic thrown in the mix, black beans are a healthier, fiber-rich alternative.
Nachos instead of Cranberry Sauce
These two don’t really have much in a common beyond being the unsung heroes of their respective dinner tables. But you’ll need nachos, and they have to replace something.
Enchiladas instead of Green Bean Casserole
Sure, green bean casserole may make you feel nice and cozy inside, but it’s nothing compared to the gooey, savory goodness of enchiladas. This one is an even swap in the comfort food department.
Sopapilla Chips instead of Pumpkin Pie
And since you somehow save room for dessert after your Thanksgiving feast, you’ll need a sweet treat to finish it off. Keep the Tex-Mex theme going with warm flour tortilla chips topped with cinnamon-sugar and drizzled with honey.
See, this lineup doesn’t seem so crazy now, does it? Be a trailblazer this Thanksgiving and put our menu to the test. Happy Fuzzy-giving!
