We gathered the best tacos for breakfast, lunch, dinner – and dessert – from the Cabot Cheese Board bloggers and the Cabot website.
Making a taco is like creating a work of art. There are a few simple guidelines, but the end result is limited only by your imagination. Whether you surround your taco filling with a crispy shell or a soft one, flour or corn, baked or fried, even the taco shell is a culinary decision you make to create the taco of your dreams.
The beauty of a taco – beyond its great taste – is that it can be so easily customized to suit even the most finicky eater. While tacos likely originated in the silver mines of Mexico as a means for hungry miners to carry their meals, tacos have captured the hearts – and taste buds – of Americans everywhere. They’re tagged millions of times on Instagram, pinned abundantly on Pinterest, and featured on Facebook daily. The celebration of Taco Tuesday has been a thing since 1982, but has emerged as a ubiquitous Internet hashtag in recent years.
According to nationaltacoday.com Americans ate a whopping 4.5 billion tacos last year alone. For the record, National Taco Day is celebrated on October 4, but here at Cabot we like to think that just about any day is a great day to eat a taco.
There are so many ways to create and enjoy a delicious taco. At breakfast, this versatile pocket of yumminess is the perfect vessel for eggs, especially when combined with south-of-the-border elements like peppers, chorizo, and beans.
Vegetarian tacos make a tasty side dish or a satisfying main dish. For meat lovers, fill your shells with beef, pork, chicken, or fish. Because of their nearly universal appeal, making tacos for dinner is almost always a way to please everyone at the table. There are even delicious dessert tacos to satisfy your taco-loving sweet tooth.
