The all-time favourite as a taco topping. This Mexican delight is usually made with tomatoes, chillies, onions and a dash of lime. It provides the perfect balance with the meat or veg fillings. If you’ve never tried salsa on your tacos, you’re really missing out.
This avocado dip can be an excellent choice for your taco topping. Homemade guacamole is a better choice, as it gives a fresh flavor to the taco. Make this creamy topping with freshly chopped onion, garlic, mashed avocados, lime juice, and seasonings of choice. You can also add cilantro and jalapeno or chilies if you like.
One of the most common toppings used on tacos is cheese. The creaminess of cheese makes a great combination with almost all meats and vegetable fillings. Various types of cheeses can be used on your tacos where each one provides a different taste. Try various cheese options, such as blue, cheddar, shredded, feta, and many others.
Sour cream adds a creaminess and a sour taste to your tacos. If you are health conscious, you can substitute for low-fat sour cream or yoghurt as well.
Jalapenos, Black and Green Olives
