Tacos are loved by so many people all around the world. So, chances are you’ve indulged in a delicious treat once or twice in your life. You’re probably used to the standard lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes as toppings, but what about something a bit more unique?
If you’ve had coleslaw, you’ve probably had it either at a picnic or paired with a fish fry. But what about trying it on top of one of the most popular Mexican dishes? Coleslaw is a tangy and sweet side dish that you need to test out during your next taco party. The creamy texture and crunch add something different to a dish that’s usually spicy and juicy.
Here’s a weird one for you: Mushrooms might be your new favorite taco topping. Sautee some mushrooms in the frying pan with a little pepper and butter. They’ll be so delectable it’ll be hard to not snack on them before putting them on the taco. Pair the mushrooms with some poblano peppers for a unique, meat-free topping idea that will keep you full for hours to come.
If you’re a health nut you probably love eating kale in your salads or smoothies. But try it out on your tacos next time you pick up a fresh head. The kale on top of something that strays far away from your usually veggie burger might make you feel a lot better about your decision to grab margaritas after work.
Do you love fruit? Well, here’s the perfect topping option for your next Taco Tuesday party. Grill up some pineapple and throw it on top of your Mexican food. The sweetness of the fruit will add a little something extra and unexpected to the savory dish.
Salsa has become the number one condiment nationwide, surpassing ketchup and mayo, seemingly the most American of all of the condiments. And tortillas have been outselling hot dog buns since 2010. While many people throw salsa, lettuce, and sour cream on their tacos, they don’t have to be topped with your usual Mexican ingredients. Get creative and try coleslaw, mushrooms, and kale.
