Taco party planned? Then we are officially a little bit jealous. You can wake us up anytime for tacos. Especially if the tacos are completely on point , which you will certainly succeed with these 5 tips for the tastiest tacos.

With these 5 tips to make the tastiest tacos you will score! And don’t forget to serve it with  Mezcal or a cocktail with tequila .

5 tips to make the best tacos

1. Buy good (blue!) corn tortillas

Perhaps the most important factor for a good taco is the quality of the tortilla. You can often find wheat tortillas in the supermarket, but if you really want it Mexican, you buy tortillas made from corn.

Today, you can find corn tortillas in most major supermarkets (like this one from the La Morena brand). If not, you have a greater chance of scoring authentic corn tortillas at international tokos (such as Tjin’s toko in Amsterdam). With a bit of luck you will also stumble upon blue tortillas , made from a blue corn variety. Extra funky and 100% like in Mexico.

2. Find inspiration at taco places

If you want something different than a taco with chicken and guacamole, our best tip is to get inspiration from the menus of taco restaurants. For example, at Alfredo’s in Rotterdam they serve tacos with fried plantain, mango salsa and red cabbage and at Hija De Sanchez in Copenhagen they serve tacos with fried egg, tomato salsa, chicharron , onion and coriander.

Super handy, because that way you come across combinations that you would never have thought of otherwise. You will also find a lot of inspiration on the menus of Fifty Fifty , Coba and Cabrón .

3. Make sure your flavors are well balanced

Whether you use an existing recipe or not, always make sure that the flavors in your taco are nicely balanced. The Mexicans are not afraid of a little sweet ( mango salsa !) in combination with sour (fresh lime juice!), salty (cheddar cheese!), creamy (sour cream!) and spicy ( chipotle !).

These flavors are nicely balanced in the tastiest tacos. So make sure that you never bet too much on one flavor, but just create a balance between sweet, salty, sour, creamy and spicy.

4. Don’t forget the (fresh) toppings

If you order a taco in Mexico, you can be sure that a fresh lime is always served with it. And while a certain segment of the population thinks cilantro tastes like soapy water , in Mexico they don’t seem to serve a taco without it being topped with a few leaves of fresh cilantro.

This may seem like a finishing touch, but make no mistake: fresh toppings such as lime, coriander or ( pickled ) red onion are crucial! You can also easily add extra crunch through toppings , as we did before with popcorn and roasted corn.

5. It’s all in the sauce

The Mexicans, who don’t shy away from a hearty batch of spicyness . Salsa macha , salsa verde , pico de gallo, .. They prefer to make their own fresh salsas or drip some extra chili oil on everything.

If you also like a bit of spicyness , make sure there is at least one nice salsa on the table. You can make your own (for example via this handy guide ), but you can also invest in a high-quality hot sauce. And the enthusiasts can even take out a hot sauce subscription ! That’s true taco love.

PS: Don’t trust people that don’t like tacos. They’re probably not human.
