It’s crunch time, taco lovers!
Grab some salsa and get ready to celebrate National Taco Day on Monday, Oct. 4.
Tacos are just about the perfect meal (or snack) because you can put just about anything you like in the crunchy shell or soft tortilla, whether it’s beef, chicken, pork. seafood or just lots of veggies. According to a recent survey, most Americans think beef is the superior filling.
Then, there are the endless toppings– from lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream, salsa and whatever else suits your taste buds.
Except for being a little messy, tacos are a family favorite because they’re easy to prepare and sure to please every picky palate. Even more so because they’re not too expensive (unless you love fish tacos!), whether you’re making them at home or enjoying them in a restaurant.
