I must confess to being a fuddy-duddy when it came to tacos. Crispy corn tortilla shells, spicy ground beef, chopped tomatoes, lettuce and cheese were my typical ingredients. The first time I heard of fish tacos many years ago, I just shook my head. No, no, no. Fish did not go in tacos.
But, you know what? I was wrong! Now I love soft tacos with flour or corn tortillas and all sorts of fillings. For today’s Weekday Supper, I bring you not one Taco Tuesday recipe, but 10 ways to build a better taco!
