Like many of my favorite taco recipes, this wouldn’t be complete without pico de gallo. Pico de gallo, in my opinion is the most amazing compliment! The citrus in the tomatoes and lime, the cilantro and the red onions with a splash of salt and pepper make the best mix.
There are salsa alternatives if pico de gallo is not your thing! If you prefer something a bit spicier with a little bit of a kick, or like the sweet citrusy flavor of mango in your salsa, you could try a delicious Tomatillo-Serrano salsa, a Salsa Verde, a Mango Habanero salsa! The possibilities are endless!
In the ingredients section below, I include instructions for the preparation of the meat, the sweet yellow corn mix and the pico de gallo — just as I used in this recipe.
I’ve also included instructions for how I prepared the “vampire taco” if you’d like to know how I accomplished that as well. If you just want a simple taco, like what’s shown in the images, you can simply sauté a corn tortilla on both sides and enjoy as is.
My suggestion, dont short yourself of the experience, give the vampire taco a shot! ;)
