A day at the beach really make me work up an appetite. Depending on the beach you go to, you might have to pack your own lunch, or you might luck out and either have a food truck on the beach or some restaurants nearby. Either way, my favorite food to chow down on at the beach is a tasty taco.
If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know I’m a HUGE fan of items and foods that are functional. A taco’s very functional in the sense that you can load it up with all sorts of toppings like: meat, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, hot sauce. The possibilities are endless!
Suppose you make a taco that’s loaded with filling. There’s no way that you can possibly eat that sucker without making a mess. As long as you keep the mess contained to a plate or paper towel, just grab a few chips and start scooping. You basically get a great meal and some nachos on the side, without even paying extra for the nachos!
In case you don’t want to eat a taco, per say. All you would have to do is load up a tortilla, much like you would make a taco, make a bowl out of it or just don’t roll it up. Don’t be a cave man/woman. Have some manners and chow down with a fork and you’ve got yourself a taco salad.
One of my favorite recipes is taco in a bag. Open a bag of Frito’s and load it up with all your taco fillings. Once you’ve done that, shake it up really quick and start chowing down with a fork or spoon, your call.
Next time you’re planning a trip to the beach, channel your inner Hispanic and plan to grab some form of a taco or pack a couple tacos yourself. You’ll see firsthand how tacos at the beach make the world go round.
