Even if you don’t have a mariachi band on speed dial, you can still plan Mexican inspired specials. Don’t typically serve Mexican fare? Don’t worry, there are still plenty of ways to cash in on the festivities!
Authentic or Globally Inspired: You can keep it classic with Mexican-inspired fillings or change it up with your own ethnic flair. You can keep it simple with ingredients like jalapeno, chipotle or other chiles, cilantro or avocado. If you want to take it up a notch, try using tomatillos, jicama, or nopales.
Any Time of Day: Tacos span every daypart, making them perfect for even breakfast or brunch, like these Corned Beef Hash Breakfast Tacos
Informal or Chic: Most people think of tacos as a casual meal, but they don’t have to be! They can also be posh, like these Lobster Tacos with Cotija Lime Mayo
Meat or Plant-Based: A big trend this year is birria, a regional Mexican dish consisting of slow-braised goat in boldly flavored adobo. Not a fan of goat? We’re starting to see birrias made with beef, pork, chicken, lamb on the bone and even tofu.
Moral of the story? Tacos are always a good idea!
