What is a Taco?

A taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including beef, chicken, seafood, vegetables and cheese, allowing for great versatility and variety. A taco is generally eaten without utensils and is often accompanied by garnishes such as salsa, avocado or guacamole, cilantro, tomatoes, onions and lettuce.

  1. i LOVE fish tacos and I LOVE THIS POST!!! Wish I could eat them off the screen. When I made fish tacos, I tried to make special sauce to go with it. I haven't perfected a sauce yet, because I'm trying to get a balance of creaminess and flavor without all the fat. The ingredients you have here look yummy and add lots of flavor without drowning out the tacos. Thanks for posting!!
