A Few Uncommon Toppings to Add Zing to Your Tacos

By Christopher Kennedy

Some people would say that tacos are among the most well liked meals to prepare in your own home. Tacos are simple to prepare, taste fantastic, and also the items used to make them are inxpensive. Usually, toppings used for tacos consist of diced tomatoes, lettuce, black olives, mexican cheese, and fresh avocados. Even so, with some unique taco toppings you are able to alter the taste of the entire dish. In this short article, we'll discuss five original toppings for making your tacos jump out.

One particular unconventional topping which tastes good is cilantro, also known as coriander. You can find garden-fresh cilantro from your local food store. Once your tacos are cooked, break up the cilantro into tiny pieces and set within a serving dish. This topping goes well with just about any sort of chicken taco recipes you prepare.

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 see, there are many different toppings to use on tacos. While it's good to have all the regular toppings, having just one or two of these uncommon toppings as well can make your tacos both unique and extra tasty!
