Tacos are among the most popular dishes to make at home. They are easy to make, taste great, and the ingredients don’t cost much. Generally, taco toppings include chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, olives, shredded cheese, and chopped avocados. However, with a few different toppings you can alter the flavor of the entire meal. In this article, we’ll look at 5 creative toppings to make your tacos stick out.
1 uncommon taco topping that tastes great is fresh cilantro, also referred to as chinese parsley and coriander. You can buy fresh cilantro at your neighborhood grocery store. When your tacos are ready to serve, cut the fresh cilantro into small pieces and place in a bowl. This goes great with just about any kind of tacos you create.
Another unique taco topping is scallions. Scallions have hollow green leaves and are sometimes called green onions or spring onions. Though they taste like onions, their flavor is milder. The reason they make such a excellent taco topping is because they permit you to cook your tacos without onions, because some of your guests may not like that flavor, but you still have the choice to add an onion flavor to your tacos by using scallions as a topping.
Lime juice is yet another simple, unique topping for your tacos. I prefer to cut several new limes into wedges and put them in a small bowl next to my other taco toppings. You may then squeeze the limes over your tacos as wanted. If you do not have access to fresh limes, any type of lime juice you find at the store can act as a substitute.
Want to give a whole new meaning to the phrase”tex-mex food”? Try using BBQ sauce as a creative taco topping! Believe it or not, BBQ sauce actually tastes great on your tacos. It’s an ideal alternative flavor if you have guests that don’t enjoy spicy food. This works best when used as a topping for beef or chicken tacos (it tends to overpower the taste of fish tacos however ).
My personal favorite unique taco topping is garlic. Chop up a few cloves of fresh garlic, fry for a minute (until brown) in olive oil or butter, then place in a dish next to your other taco toppings. Make sure you put a little spoon in the bowl so guests may add this garlic topping to their tacos without needing to touch it with their hands (due to the smell). If you don’t have fresh garlic or feel lazy, just use a garlic powder and sprinkle it over your tacos.
As you can see, there are lots of unique toppings to use on tacos. While it’s good to have all the normal toppings, having just one or two of these creative toppings as well can make your tacos both unique and extra yummy!
