Types of Tacos
While most of us are familiar with the hard crunchy shell of the standard taco that you get with a taco kit from the grocery store, there are actually a wide range of tacos and ingredients that you can choose from. Here are some of the classic favorites.
1. Tacos de quelites:
This is a true vegetarian feast. You use a nice warm tortilla to wrap some vegetables that are cooked with amaranth, huauzontles, quintonil, or spinach. It is a nice warm meal with a lot of variety in taste as the rich greens help add diversity.
2. Tacos de Cazuela:
This taco starts with a large corn tortilla. It then gets refried beans, avocado sauce and salsa. After that, you set it on a comal with your choice of higaditos (little livers), salsa de chicharron, or tinga de pollo. It is a very distinct flavor.
This fun dish from Chihuahua is more of a burrito style. It uses a flour tortilla with melted Chihuahua cheese, a flattened chile relleno made with a chilaca pepper and then you add on beef in red or green salsa. It isn’t the biggest burrito, but it has all you need for a great meal.
4. Carne asada:
This fine taco is made using a flour tortilla and fine beef steak cuts. It gets cooked over mesquite and then adding salsas and condiments to taste. While it may sound simple and a common dish, it is hard to get a good quality one.
5. Seafood Tacos:
Sure, you have had fried fish added to your taco, but that is just the first step. There are a lot of choices from shrimp, stewed manta-ray, spicy shrimp, tuna fin and a wide range of other options available for you to indulge in. Maybe a little squid or octopus. Be adventurous and try out some of the great wonders the sea has to offer your tacos.
