Taco Time!

Taco Time Presented By QuiBids

I love tacos. If my husband allowed me, I would probably make them at least once a week. There are so many fun and flavorful options, from the seasoned ground beef, to pulled pork, chicken, fish and even vegetarian tacos. There’s even the choice of hard of soft taco shells (often called street tacos)! No matter what you and your family prefer, there’s a flavor combination out there for you. In today’s blog we’ll discuss some of the popular taco options as well as provide products to help you on your way to enjoying your own taco masterpieces!

Beef

Beef Tacos

Perhaps the most iconic taco in the US is the ground beef taco. This taco is usually topped with salsa, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Sometimes sour cream is added to the mix. But the topping options are endless. In our house these tacos also include avocados and fresh cilantro.

 

Fish

Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos are often made with fresh cod or tilapia and served topped with red onion, a cilantro lime slaw, fresh cilantro piled on a soft tortilla with a lime wedge on the side. They make a refreshing summer dinner option and can even be made with shrimp!

 

Vegetarian

Vegetarian Tacos

Tacos don’t need to have meat in them to be delicious. While we’re not vegetarians in our household I do try to include meatless options in our menu from time to time. Try black beans in place of the meat and top your tacos with things like fresh lettuce, tomatoes and avocado. Sauteed onions, grilled vegetables, homemade pico de gallo or a fresh corn salsa would also be quite tasty! There’s really no end to the choices.

My ideal taco? Seasoned ground beef, homemade pico de gallo, cilantro, diced red bell peppers, fresh avocado and a little bit of cheese and sour cream. Not a lot though because I love all those lovely fresh veggies and don’t like to overshadow them. I also like my taco shells toasted for just a few minutes in the oven to really bring out the flavor.
