5 Creative Ideas for Taco Toppings
Tacos are a versatile staple of the American diet. We love them so much that Taco Tuesdays have become a weekly tradition. Tacos from a Mexican food restaurant typically have some variation of meat, shredded cheese, iceberg lettuce, and chopped tomatoes. If you’re lucky, the cook might add a bit of avocado or sour cream. However, even the most basic tacos can be made spectacularly different by changing the toppings.
Here are five new and interesting taco toppings that will change the way you look at Taco Tuesdays forever.
A staple in traditional Mexican food, radishes add a sharp, meaty zing to boring toppings. Mix chopped raw radish into your salsa or pico de gallo. Or, slice them thin for a refreshing zing in fish tacos.
Bacon makes everything taste better. Crumble some across the top of your tacos for an extra dose of delicious! Just don’t overdo it. When using bacon as a taco topping, less is definitely more.
The delicate creaminess of diced or chopped artichoke hearts adds a subtle spice to the average taco. Goes very well with a variety of melted cheeses. You also get an extra vitamin boost.
Transform your taco into a Mediterranean delight. Use feta cheese, black olives, and red onion to change up your taco routine. While not normally found in Mexican food restaurants, a feta cheese combo can be an unexpectedly pleasant addition to your dinner plate.
Cilantro is great, but if it’s the only herb you see in your taco, you might be missing out. Chop and combine it with mint, parsley, or oregano for a fresh splash of flavor. Play with the mix until you find just the right proportions for your palate.
