THE FIVE KEY COMPONENTS:
Start with a tortilla of your choice, flour or corn tortilla. Corn tortillas have a more traditional and authentic flavour, while flour tortillas tend to be softer and more pliable. For a lighter option, you could also use a lettuce cup.
We always like to warm tortillas before serving to make them more pliable. Heating them over a flame or grill adds a delicious smokey taste that we love!
The protein filling is a key component of tacos and can provide a lot of flavour to the taco.
- Seasoned mince
- Grilled chicken,
- Fish, pan fried or crumbed
- Slow-cooked pork or beef,
- Grilled veggies
Adding something fresh is key to balancing out the rich flavours of the protein. You can add some simple
- Shredded lettuce
- Tomato salsa
- Salsa verde
Tacos always need something creamy to balance out the acidity of the other fillings.
- Sour cream
- Sriracha mayo
- Coriander and lime crema
- Feta cheese
Finish off your taco with some final touches.
- Fresh coriander
- Squeeze of lime juice
- Pickled onions
- Charred corn
Start by placing the protein in the tortilla as the base layer. Add your fresh and creamy elements, distributing them evenly then top with your toppings – this helps to ensure that each bite contains a balanced mix of flavours.
The best thing about tacos is their versatility, so feel free to experiment with different ingredients, flavours, and combinations!
