Cilantro Lime Salsa for Tacos

I’ve loved tacos since I was little.  It was always a special occasion when my parents made it for family dinner.  The way my parents served it was simple but delicious, ground beef, bell peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, with hard shell tacos.  It was always fun and always delicious.

It wasn’t until I met my husband that my way of having tacos eventually changed.  The most important change was introducing me to a cilantro lime salsa, and now I can’t have tacos without it.  Over time I also realized I liked my tacos better without bell peppers. And we’ve learned the only hot sauce we enjoy with our tacos is La Victoria.  So my husband and I now have our own way of having tacos. And though it’s little different than what I learned from my parents, it’s something I would be proud to serve them.  That’s the thing I love about food, cooking, and recipes, there’s usually (some exceptions) no wrong or right way to eat, just what feels good and tastes good to you. And don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise!

I guess when I have a family this will be our way of serving tacos to my kids, and hopefully they’ll have as great memories of family taco night as I did.
