What's better than a cold margarita on a hot summer day? A cold pitcher of margaritas plus a table filled with tacos. We'd have to argue that this particular food and drink pairing is one of our favourite easy seasonal meals. Why? Because the classic Mexican dish is incredibly customisable — from veggies, meat, and fish, to all the savoury-sweet add-ons. Plus tacos are affordable to assemble in bulk and (most importantly) can be tailored to quick home-cooking with just a few simple steps and ingredients.
In order to demonstrate how foolproof tacos can be as the ideal warm-weather, make-it-yourself meal, we've created a formula to follow for five separate summery recipes. Ahead, find fun ideas for easy taco assembly.
