The Best Tacos in Town
Six awesome taco recipes for your menu
Tacos—the ultimate casual food with limitless potential. They’ve got more swagger than sandwiches and more street cred than burgers, but they still play within your customers’ safe zone. And from the back-of-house perspective, tacos answer a few operational needs beautifully. “With today’s demand for fun global builds and ‘mash-ups,’ tacos are a great place to both cross-utilize ingredients and also use up leftover inventory in creative ways,” says Barry Miles, senior corporate chef for Kraft Foodservice. “They help with food cost because you can use up ingredients costed out for other dishes—they’re already paid for.” Tacos also deliver ease of execution. “Most of the prep is mise en place, and then it’s just quick assembly,” says Chef Miles.
