Like everyone, I’m craving some adventure and daydreaming future destinations. Mexico City might be my first stop. It’s a vibrant, energetic city with incredible food around every corner. I hopped down there a few summers ago and came back with a list of restaurants to try next someday.
For now, we can make tacos at home. I can’t claim these black tacos are authentic, but they are easy, quick, tasty, and quite versatile. (If you’re looking for truly epic tacos, here they are—but they are a bit more time-consuming and reliant upon fresh produce.)
I hope these tacos are exactly what you need right now. I’ve provided suggestions on ingredient substitutions and alternate sauce ideas below.
Serve them as-is for an easy dinner, or keep on reading for side dish suggestions!
