cinco de taco


Let's clear one thing up from the very start: it does not need to be the fifth of May in this household for us to whip up a batch of killer tacos. Not at all. BUT, seeing as we will take advantage of any opportunity to celebrate a holiday centered around food (so, all the holidays, I guess?), we decided to join in the Cinco de Mayo festivities.

Now I don't really have a taco "recipe" to present to you here, really just a collection of prep photos on how we enjoyed our particular vegetarian (and mostly vegan, minus the cheese on mine, YES) take on tacos. I think the most basic rule here is that there are no rules: if it fits in the shell, it works. Too loose? Maybe. But I've never met a taco I didn't see eye to eye with, to be perfectly honest.

What you need is a good variety of flavor, some classic and more unexpected toppings and salsas to choose from (cucumber-mango-pineapple-radish, anyone?) and I bet you you'll have a hard time stopping at just one, or two, or three.

Happy belated Cinco!
