Taco night is a favorite in my house. It’s usually an opportunity to use whatever I may have in the refrigerator – a pepper, onion, leftover rice – with ground beef, ground turkey, or even chicken. I almost never make it the same way twice. I try to keep a medium-hot salsa and some corn tacos or tortillas on hand, and then it’s easy to make tacos on a whim.
My secrets to great tacos are to let the filling simmer for a couple of hours (it’s a great meal when you don’t know what time you’ll actually be serving dinner), and to serve it with guacamole. We forgo the cheese (rather than opting for a dairy-free cheese), but this guacamole definitely makes up for it:
1 medium to large avocado
1 tbsp lime juice
¼ cup red onion, finely diced
a pinch of salt
Mash the avocado with the lime juice and stir in the onions. Serve with your favorite tacos!
