onion ======== An onion is typically cut up and then tossed into a skillet or something else to heat it. Olive oil is nice. They can be grilled or caramelized as well.

Cheese (Traditional; US) ====================== A major flavor component of a traditional American taco, select a cheese that's firm and sharp. * Cheddar (shredded) * Jack/Pepper Jack (shredded) tags: vegetarian

Garlic Lime Sauce ===================== This sauce packs a creamy, sour, garlicky punch and can cut the heat on a spicy salsa. It pairs well with Mango Lime Salsa for excellent fish tacos. This is a simplified version of the [lime sauce recipe](http://www.loveandoliveoil.com/2008/04/fish-tacos-with-mango-salsa.html) on Love and Oil. Combine in a bowl: * 1-2 tablespoons mayonnaise * 1/2 cup plain yogurt * 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice * 1-2 cloves minced garlic * salt to taste * (optional): chopped fresh cilantro garnish Whisk ingredients together in bowl. Serve on the side, or drizzle as a decorative layer onto prepared tacos. Optionally sprinkle with chopped cilantro as garnish. tags: vegetarian

Sriracha Marinade =================== Alone on a Saturday night, I put on Iron Maiden, cubed up a pork chop and whipped this marinade together: * 2-3 Tbs sriracha sauce * couple pinches of Mexican Oregano * good shake of smokey paprika * tsp or so of ground ancho chile * pinch of salt Get this coated nicely over everything before frying or grilling on high heat. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Hard Corn Shells (Traditional; US) ====================== Mistakenly thought by many to be traditionally Mexican, hard shells were actually popularized in the US in the mid-20th century. While they can certainly be made at home (if you have access to a deep-fryer), the best method of obtaining hard taco shells is to head to the grocery store. If you line them with a lettuce leaf rather than using chopped lettuce, when the shell cracks you won't lose the contents into your lap. tags: vegetarian
