I think the taco is a nearly perfect food. You add some protein, veggies, and fats into a handheld vessel. It's so easy to customize a taco, so everyone can get what they want. I could probably eat tacos every single day and not get sick of them.
I have an arsenal of tried and true taco combinations ready to go at the drop of a hat, and I always have spices on hand to make an impromptu taco seasoning. Toast up some soft tortillas and you'll have dinner (or breakfast, or lunch) on the table in minutes. Looking for inspiration? Try one of the combos below.
breakfast tacos: eggs, chorizo, diced potatoes, bell pepper, salsa, cheese
smoky chicken tacos: ground or shredded chicken, diced poblano pepper, new mexico seasoning, avocado, verde Cholula
balsamic steak tacos: grilled steak marinated in balsamic vinegar, pea shoots, radish, blue cheese crumbles, chimichurri
fish tacos: breaded mahi mahi, cabbage, sriracha cream
verde tacos: shredded chicken, black beans, verde sauce, cheese
lentil tacos: lentils mashed in taco seasoning, cheese, guacamole
short rib tacos: shredded korean bbq short ribs (from the slow cooker), kim chi, sriracha
sweet potato tacos: diced sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, spinach, cheese, avocado
