Riviera Maya, Mexico (September 19, 2016) – Celebrate National Taco Day this year (October 4) with a twist on traditional tacos from Chaka restaurant at the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya. Octopus tacos are served “Ajillo” style with nopales (cactus) and crispy potato on Guajillo-flavored tortillas at the Yucatecan restaurant, which serves a menu inspired by the region’s traditional cuisine. If you can’t make it to Riviera Maya to Mexico’s Foodie Resort for Taco Day, try the recipe below for an easier make at home version on traditional corn tortillas found at every grocery store.
