One of the best things about traveling to Mexico is the food. Every day other countries attempt to imitate Mexico’s most famous food item: the taco. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you and we’re willing to share the 5 easy steps it takes to make the perfect taco.

1. Tortillas

First you will need a small corn tortilla (handmade if you can find one!). This will be the base for your tacos.

2. Meat

Next you will need to choose your favorite kind of Mexican meat. We recommend pastor, barbacoa, carnitas, cochinita, or chicharron prensado. Each is made in their own special way and all of them are delicious. Place your meat of choice on the handmade tortilla.

3. Vegetables

Next you will need to add your vegetables. Typically, this includes cilantro and onions. Some people choose to also add pico de gallo and/or guacamole. We say: the more, the better.

4. Salsas

Then you must choose a salsa to add. Choose one that fits your taste, red or green, just make sure it’s not too spicy! You might even want to add a tamarindo or maggie salsa too. Feel free to mix and match.

5. Limes

The last step is the most important and that is to add the juice of a ripe lime. Most Mexicans will tell you a taco doesn’t taste the same without lime! Douse those tacos with the juice of a whole lime or more, and then it’s time to enjoy your masterpiece!
