Five Unique Toppings to Make Your Tacos Taste Great

By Christopher Kennedy

It's safe to say tacos could possibly be the most common dinners to cook at your home. Tacos are really easy to cook, taste wonderful, plus the ingredients to make them are cheap. Typically, toppings used include things like cut up tomatoes, fresh lettuce, sliced olives, cheese, and fresh avocados. On the other hand, by incorporating creative taco toppings it is possible to alter the taste of the entire dish. In this informative article, we'll go through a few unique toppings to help make your tacos be bold.

One uncommon taco topping that tastes great is fresh cilantro, also referred to as chinese parsley and coriander. You can buy fresh cilantro at your local grocery store. When your tacos are ready to serve, cut up the fresh cilantro into small pieces and place in a bowl. This goes great with just about any type of healthy taco recipes you make.

Another uncommon taco topping is scallions. Scallions have hollow green leaves and are sometimes called green onions or spring onions. Although they taste like onions, their flavor is milder. The reason they make such a great taco topping is because they allow you to cook your tacos without onions, since some of your guests may not like that flavor, but you still have the option to add an onion flavor to your tacos by using scallions as a topping.

Lime-juice is another basic, unconventional topping to serve with your tacos. Some people like to slice several limes into pieces and set them inside a topping bowl right next to the other toppings. You can now squeeze the limes on top of the tacos if you'd like to. If you do not have any fresh limes, almost any type of lime juice you get at the store serves as a replacement.

Want something VERY unique? You could try using Bar-b-que sauce as a extremely creative taco topping. Contrary to popular belief, Bar-b-que sauce in fact tastes wonderful on top of your tacos. It's the most perfect opposite taste if you've got friends who don't really enjoy spicy flavors. This is best suited when used as a topping for beef or chicken tacos (it will overpower the taste of sea food tacos).

My personal favorite uncommon taco topping is garlic. Chop up a few cloves of fresh garlic, fry for a minute (until brown) in olive oil or butter, then place in a dish next to your other taco toppings. Make sure you put a small spoon in the bowl so guests can add this garlic topping to their tacos without having to touch it with their hands because of the strong smell. If you don't have fresh garlic or you are feeling lazy, just use some garlic powder and sprinkle it over your tacos.

As you can tell, there are lots of unique toppings to add to tacos. Although it's essential to have all of the normal taco toppings, having only 1 or 2 of the above unusual taco toppings in addition could make your tacos delicious and unique.
