Tacos are one of the most famous Mexican dishes in the world! You can find tacos in almost any big city out there, from New York to… well, Bucharest! But what makes tacos so great and delicious that everyone loves them, regardless of culinary preferences?
First of all, tacos are a simple dish. And you may already know that all simple things are always better, especially when it comes to food! Tacos encompass all the main flavors of the Mexican cuisine: spicy from the sauce, fresh from the lime juice and pickled onion, crunchy from the corn tortillas, filling thanks to the veggies inside. And I could go on and on!
Mexican cuisine has become so popular around the world because it revolves around simple, yet meaningful dishes. Tacos, quesadillas, burritos, nachos, corn soups, and more – all of them have easy ingredients and methods but the results are simply unforgettable. If you don’t believe me, just try making a taco instead of ordering take away the next time you’re craving Mexican food and you’ll see that it’s SO easy and quick, yet super rewarding.
What I love best about tacos is that they’re extremely versatile. There are fish tacos, chicken tacos, pork tacos, seafood tacos, beef tacos – basically any filling you can think of, there’s a taco for it. Which means they’re easy to ‘veganize‘ as well – how awesome is that?! Yes, you can make veggie tacos and still get a flavorful, filling meal – and my 10 veggie taco recipes below are proof of this!
