Everybody loves a good ol' taco night, and you don't even have to be in mexico to enjoy the flavors of the country! Here are ten things you need to a successful taco night!
Taco Shells or Tortillas: The foundation of any taco night is, of course, the shells or tortillas. Choose your preferred type, whether it be hard, soft, or even lettuce wraps.
Meat or Protein: Whether it's ground beef, chicken, shrimp, or tofu, having a protein source is essential for a satisfying taco night.
Seasoning Mix: A pre-made seasoning mix or your own blend of spices can elevate the flavor of your meat or protein.
Vegetables: Add some freshness and crunch to your tacos with toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and peppers.
Cheese: A taco isn't complete without some shredded cheese, whether it be cheddar, Monterey Jack, or queso fresco.
Salsa: A jar of store-bought salsa or homemade pico de gallo is a great addition to tacos and can add a spicy kick.
Guacamole: Fresh guacamole and some seasoning can add a creamy texture to your tacos and complement the other flavors.
Sour Cream: A dollop of sour cream can help balance out the spiciness of your taco and add a cool creaminess, for the vegans there is an alternative!
Lime Wedges: Squeezing fresh lime juice over your tacos can add a bright, citrusy flavor.
Chips and Dip: To round out the meal, serve some chips and dip on the side. A bowl of tortilla chips and salsa or queso is a classic option.
