What Are Street Tacos

Street tacos originated in Mexico on the streets where migrants worked and would take the tacos on the go. Street tacos are small and often stuffed with steak and other kinds of meat.

What’s The Difference Between A Street Taco And A Regular Taco?

Street tacos are much smaller than regular tacos. Typical street tacos are made with onions, seasoned meat, and cilantro. They don’t usually come with the extra toppings that traditional tacos do, but you can add whatever you like.

Mexican Street Tacos T ips

  • To get that authentic street taco flavor, be sure to use good-quality tortillas. I like to use corn tortillas, but you can also use flour tortillas.
  • If you want your tacos to be extra flavorful, try grilling the tortillas before filling them. This gives them a nice smoky flavor.
  • The toppings are really up to you, but I like to keep it simple with just some diced tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice. You can also add cheese, sour cream, or avocado if you like.
  • If you’re serving these tacos for a party or potluck, set out all of the toppings and let everyone build their own tacos. That way, everyone can customize them to their own taste.

What To Serve With Tacos

Can I Use Flour Tortillas Instead?

Yes, you can make this Mexican street tacos recipe with corn or flour tortillas. Authentic street tacos have corn tortillas, but flour is great too.

Can I Store My  Leftovers?

Store leftover street tacos unassembled in a sealed container in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, heat the meat in a skillet with a little bit of oil or microwave. Assemble tacos and enjoy!
