10 Taco Toppings You Can’t Resist

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t like tacos. As one of the most popular food staples in North America, there are as many taco stands as there are burger and pizza joints. The only difficulty one might find is deciding what goes on them. Tacos are one of the most customizable food items, and the variations seem to be limitless. While there might not be the perfect combination out there (at least not yet), we chose 10 toppings that you can’t do without.

toppings on a taco at jalisco mexican grill in sarasota

Pico de Gallo

If you want a kick that won’t cause your mouth to ring a fire alarm, then this is a no-brainer. Pico de Gallo is a combination of diced onions, tomatoes, chiles, cilantro, a bit of lime, and a pinch of salt.


Not only does this derivative of the avocado have an enticing kick, but it’s also healthy for you. Packed with healthy fats for essential brain function, pile it on and enjoy!

Pickled Jalapeños

For those who want to set the world afire. This popular pepper has a spicy kick and is also rich in vitamin A and potassium.

Black Beans

One of the primary ingredients in many Latin-American dishes, black beans create a great base to build upon. Beans are also high in dietary fiber. They’re great-tasting and are beneficial for your digestive system.


Fish is not only a great substitute for red meat and chicken, but one of the healthiest ingredients you can possibly utilize. The American Heart Association recommends at least 2 servings of fish a week to promote a healthy heart.

Chipotle (The Sauce, Not the Fast-Food Chain)

One of the most popular sauces to emerge in recent decades is Chipotle. This smoke-dried jalapeño has a unique taste, zesty kick, and even has the potential to moderate blood pressure and even help fight cancer.


For those who have no fear when it comes to spice—the habanero pulls no punches. Another spicy ingredient that has cancer-fighting properties, it’s recommended that those who have a sensitive palate keep clear. Aside from the ghost pepper, this is one of the most aggressive tastes you’ll ever come across.

Sour Cream

Sour cream is one of the tastiest ingredients you can put on your taco. However, much like the margaritas you enjoy, moderation is the key. Sour cream has a substantial amount of saturated fat but can also lead to you intaking more vegetables and legumes.

Mexican Rice

Rice is a solid go-to for filler. Mexican Rice contains next to no fat or cholesterol. Consuming rice also provides a decent amount of dietary fiber, which is good for the digestive system.


No matter how you pronounce the word, nutritional value and great taste can’t be denied. Anti-oxidants and vitamin C accompany their mouthwatering taste, and they pair well with just about any taco topping.
