Billie here with Epicurean Delights! Nothing says Tuesday like a taco bar and delicious side dishes!
My taco filling is different every time. If I have ground beef, that's my first choice. Ground turkey is a close second, but either way, I doctor it with what ever spices and secret ingredients I have on hand.
Beefin' up the Beef
There are a ton of package seasoning mixes available. My favorite? Ortega in the value size bottle! This taco seasoning is perfect -- not because it's a steal of a deal -- it doesn't contain all that thickening stuff so the meat is full of spices and flavor.
I also add some ketchup in the mix. And a heaping tablespoon of salsa. Mix it all together and you got a big dose of yum.
My favorite topper is Trader Joe's corn salsa. It's sweet with a kick and great on top of your taco.
Taco Bar Musts
Every taco bar must have guacamole! Our delicious guacamole recipe is super easy.
Adding tortilla chips allows for building a tasty taco salad.
Fill your bar with a variety of fresh veggies like lettuce, tomatoes, and diced onions.
Cheese for me, is an absolute add in my taco bar! I like shredded sharp cheddar, store bought Mexican cheese blend, and crumbled bits of cotija or queso fresco cheese.
Sour cream? Yes! I love Mexican sour cream because it's extra creamy!
