A taco for a quick week night dinner
A traditional Mexican dish, a taco is a soft wheat tortilla wrap filled with a mixture of ingredients. Tacos are delicious and are great to serve for get-togethers with friends and family and assembling them can often be just as much fun as eating them!
The main ingredients that go into a taco are different types of seasoned meat, tomatoes, lettuce and beans. Depending on the region of Mexico you are taking your recipe from, different condiments and other ingredients may be added to further enhance the flavours including salsa, onions, cheese, avocados and guacamole.
Different taco recipes have many components and that is the great thing about them – you can add the ingredients that you want to make your perfect mixture. The taco tortilla wrap itself can either be crispy or soft, depending on your mood, you can use salsa, guacamole or both to get some rich flavour and heat into the mix, and adding veggies to your wraps is a great way of getting the kids to eat healthier. Plenty of seasoning and a choice of either ground beef or other meats make the taco one of the most delicious and fun dishes out there. So make a night of it – get the ingredients together and start getting creative!
