Mexican food is no more alien to us. For years now, we have been enjoying Mexican delights in restaurants and have gradually fallen for their fresh, tangy and cheesy flavours. Tacos - made of taco shells filled with a dynamic mix of veggies/meats, spices, lemon, sour cream, cheese etc. - are something nobody can dislike. You can choose soft tacos or hard taco shells and fill them whatever you want - fresh vegetables, meats, legumes, grains, salads with oodles of lip-smacking dressing. If you have always enjoyed tacos at restaurants, it's time you try making them at home, as per your taste preference.
We have listed down 5 easy taco recipes for your next Mexican meal at home:
1. Guilt Free Chicken Tacos
Give your taco a 'healthy' twist by cooking marinated chicken in just one spoon of oil and stuffing it in lettuce cups instead or taco cups. Salsa dip makes up for everything you might miss in this healthy version of taco.
