A taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables, and cheese, allowing great versatility and variety. Tacos are generally eaten without utensils, often garnished with salsa, chili pepper, avocado, guacamole, cilantro, tomatoes, onions, and lettuce.

For a milder flavor, use Ro*Tel® Mild Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies. OR, drain the liquid off the second can of tomatoes to reduce the spiciness of the tomatoes used on top of the tacos.
Crisp taco shells may be used in place of flour tortillas, if desired.
