What Are Traditional Taco Toppings?

When it comes to tacos, debates between hard shell or soft shell, and even lettuce or no lettuce rage on to this day, the cuisine phenomenon is known as “tex-mex” has normalized adding corn, shredded cheese, and diced tomatoes to our tacos. However, there are no debating the humble beginnings of the taco, and the toppings that made traditional tacos so famous. No matter what you like to put on your tacos, High Tide Taco Bar has you covered in every which way. We proudly serve quesadillas, burritos, tasty drinks, and especially tacos in Farmingdale and would love to cater your next event.

Tex- Mex .v.s. Traditional Tacos

  • Tex- Mex Tacos – The modern taco offers a variety of options for your tastebuds, starting with the shell. The shell can be hard or soft, consisting of a flour or corn tortilla. While people put just about everything on tacos these days, the most basic toppings you’ll find are lettuce, diced tomatoes, and shredded cheese. Lastly, baked chicken, beef, or pork sits at the bottom of the taco.
  • Traditional Mexican Tacos – Traditionally, tacos are served on only soft tortillas, mainly corn, but flour tortillas are also popular. White onions, cilantro, pico de gallo, and homemade salsa all lay gently over grilled or stewed meat.
