  • what to serve with tacos

    We are hosting rehersal dinner for our son, planning on making it simple and informal and serving tacos.  Need suggestions for sides to go with the tacos.  This would be in addition to the normal toppings you would have for tacos.

     The Mexican restaurants here always serve Mexican rice and refried beans with the tacos.  They also include shredded lettuce and chopped tomato in a little "salad" on the plate which goes very well with the picante food.

     We always have rice on the side with tacos.  I also always end up making mine into sort of a taco salad because the stupid shell always cracks!  I often just have regualar tortillas instead of the shells as an option. Besides it is less messy that way!

    Margaritas, and all of the above. In addition to taco shells, use tostado shells, and flour tortillas, and don't forget the avocados. :-)

    Black Beans,( best ever black beans from All recipes) Mexican rice (birdseye has a really good southwestern rice with peppers and corn it it) Quacamole, Salsa or 7 layer dip,  and you could have Churros,tres leches cake or cinammon crisps for dessert.

     I usually serve corn with tacos. Some like to add it to the toppings, I prefer it on the side.  In place of margaritas, I serve limeade.

    For a quick and easy way, I just add chopped jalapeno pepper to Jiffy corn muffin mix.

    I like the fruit cups you can buy at roadside stands in CA. Sliced jicama, cucumber, watermelon, mango and pineapple with lime juice squeezed over it all and topped with chili powder and salt. mmmmm...it's so refreshing. Just a thought. :)
