What do you put on a taco?
Often wonder what the exact ingredients are for tacos? Everyone makes them differently these days. Which is exactly what I did with this Shrimp Taco Recipe. I added pineapple salsa. What you put on your taco depends on what pairs well with the protein you are adding. But some toppings include but not limited to diced tomatoes, guacamole, onions, hot sauce, lime, shredded cheese, sour cream, lettuce, shredded cabbage, and jalapenos.
Are Mexican street tacos healthy?
Mexican street tacos are fairly healthy if you think about it. Made with corn tacos, beef, chicken, fish or pork, onions, tomatoes, guacamole, hot sauce, lime, and cilantro. Stick with cooking the meat healthy like grilling instead of frying and keep the ingredients healthy.
