A taco consists of a small hand-sized corn or wheat tortilla topped with a filling. It is a traditional from Mexico. The tortilla is folded around the filling and eaten by hand. Yay! What a great finger food it will be! A variety of fillings can be used with taco. You can choose from pork, beef, chicken, seafood, and even vegetables! Who loves cheese? If you do, this is great news! You can have cheese-filled tacos! Along with these fillings are condiments to garnish them with-salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. Vegetables are also a common garnish used. Just like in a burger, you can use lettuce, onion, tomato, and chile as garnish. If you do not like these traditional ways of filling a taco, then you can actually make your own filling. That is the best part in making tacos! You get to customize what should be put in there according to what you want! Mayonnaise, bell pepper, basil, more tomatoes, more cheese, you decide. It is really up to you!
In this recipe though, we will be using ground beef, a common choice among taco lovers. Our ingredients here may seem limited, but again, it is up to you. You can add in whatever you like as long as it is edible. Among Filipinos, it is becoming a trend to use tuna as fillings. You can also try that, but we assure you that the recipe here will never fail you. Oh, are you wondering where to get taco shells? If you know how to make one from scratch, go on.
