Everyone loves a taco, but not everyone loves the same kind. That’s the beauty of the signature dish hailing from Mexico; just a few staple ingredients are needed and the rest is up to the imagination, making the taco one of the most versatile and flexible dishes out there. Hard or soft shell, cheese or sour cream, lettuce or no lettuce — no matter what one likes and dislikes, there’s room for that in a taco, and today The Daily Meal has a collection that covers all of the bases.
For the carnivores, spicy chorizo tacos pay homage to the dish’s nationality with authentic Mexican sausage, and a skirt steak recipe sneaks in some veggies with grilled summer squash. Fish taco recipes range from indulgent beer-battered shrimp and a light salmon avocado version to critically acclaimed creations like the pescado tacos featured at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. There’s even a little something for the vegetarians and vegans, with a tofu taco recipe and skillet veggie and feta tacos.
Whether you’re serving a crowd or looking for something with little to no fuss, there’s a recipe here for you that’ll prove there’s a lot more to tacos than a packet of seasoning.
