Tips & Tricks

  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add some chopped jalapeños to the salsa.
  • For a smoky flavor, grill the tomatoes and onions before dicing them for the salsa.

  • Add a squeeze of fresh lime juice over the assembled tacos for an extra burst of citrus flavor.
  • Serve the tacos with a side of guacamole and hot sauce for additional flavor options.
