Steak Taco Substitutes

The great thing about tacos is that they are totally customizable! I love setting up taco bars with a different options so everyone can pick and choose what they want. Here are some delicious substitutions you can make for these tacos:

  1. Corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas (heat them up and serve them warm!)
  2. Mango instead of pineapple
  3. Avocado instead of jalapeno
  4. Sour cream instead of cotija cheese
