It's pretty easy to party with a taco because there are so many things that go well with it. What's most fun is making different combinations with all of the fillings.
I made these tacos for my friend Sabra. That night we were working out the final details on a dinner we are throwing that blends Indian and Mexican food together. Inspired by this theme, I prepared the ingredients for our tacos.
I've just jotted down some of the fillings below to make you wanna throw future taco parties, which I highly recommend!
We had corn tortillas that I pan fried with some olive oil.
Took a spoon of MTR brand Puliyogare (tamarind rice) powder and heated it with some oil in a pan and then threw in about a half cup of rice and mixed it all up. so good!!
Chopped whole block of tofu into little squares and fried it up with some oil under medium heat. When the tofu started to brown, I added in 2 teaspoons coriander powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/3 teaspoon turmeric, 1/4 teaspoon chili powder. Mixed it all up and cooked that for a few minutes and then added in 1 chopped plum tomato and some salt.
Fried 1/2 a white onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 jalapeno and 1/2 tomato. Added 1 can of refried beans and 1 can drained whole black beans with 1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder and mixed it up. Then when this cooked for a bit, mixed in some prepared tomato salsa and raw chopped onion. Cooked for a few minutes and added salt to taste.
Fried 1/2 red onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 red pepper and a bag of baby spinach in some olive oil and just added salt and oregano for flavor.
Cut up three plum tomatoes, 1/4 of a peeled and seeded cucumber, 1/2 a red onion, 1 jalapeno, handful of cilantro. Squeezed in 1/2 a lime and mixed in a dash of cumin and chili powder. Salt to taste.
Sabra mashed up 2 avocados with some cilantro, lime, salt and cayenne.
My favorite combination -- EVERYTHING! :)
