As we all know tacos are a traditional Mexican dish made of a corn or wheat tortilla, which is filled and then folded. The reason I like tacos is because they are so versatile. In a sense they are like Indian parathas, which just like tacos can be filled with anything and everything.

The other day I made these paneer and bean veggies tacos and topped with avocado cream sauce and fresh tomato salsa. It surely made for some fantastic dinner which we thoroughly enjoyed. I like how everyone can create their own taco based on personal likes and preference.
