Although the premise of a taco may seem relatively simple—a vessel, seasoned protein, and toppings galore—the myriad of possibilities are anything but boring when it comes down to it. Although there is nothing wrong with the standard ground beef version, there is a whole world out there of taco variations. Whether you are new to the "Taco Tuesday" craze (don't you love alliteration?), are looking to venture into new taco territory, or are simply wanting ideas for how to elevate your ingredients, we have you covered.
To start, I love a good dinner shortcut, meaning simplifying a recipe by incorporating something Made Right Here. I mean, if you have the time to slow-smoke pulled pork or craft a carne asada marinade, then go for it! But here are some ideas that feature a shortcut, including some items from our Gourmet Takeaway. You'll also see me using the line of salsa from Mazunte, a Cincinnati-based restaurant, as well as our own Made Right Here DLM Salsas. So happy Taco Tuesday (or Taco Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, etc. if you prefer).
Glistening white fish, like Mahi Mahi or tilapia, comes together with Mazunte’s Salsa Verde to create a quick and refreshing fish taco.
