Well the tried and true original is the ground beef taco. You will need to brown some ground beef and season it with cumin, chili powder, salt, and paprika. If you’re not sure about the seasonings you could again use the preseason packets sold by vendors such as Old El Paso or Taco Bell. Once the beef is all the way ground up you will need to place it into either a hard or soft shell tacos and then add your garnish that might include lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and cheese.

If you’re not a fan of beef you can still enjoy the spicy taste of tacos. A common and great recipe for chicken tacos includes shredding up the chicken and sautéing it in a skillet with a little butter or olive oil. Add in some salsa if you’d like or again purchase a taco seasoning packet. While most prefer to use a soft taco with shredded chicken you can alter this and use hard shells if you’d like. From there you again add your garnishes which could include salsa, sour cream, and diced onions.
Double Layer Tacos
Can’t decide between hard or soft shells? Well this is a great recipe in which you can use both! All you need is either chicken or beef for the meat. Cook it thoroughly in a skillet adding in a seasoning packet for flavor. Once done you will also need some refried beans heated. Spread the bean mixture thinly onto a soft shell taco and then wrap it around a hard shell. Now place your meat inside the taco combination and once again add your garnishes.

Add the fish to the corn tortillas with some cabbage and tomatoes with a squeeze of lime for zest.
