Take Taco Night from Good to Great with the Best Sides

When it comes to a fabulous taco Tuesday meal or Cinco de Mayo, the main attraction is always the delicious food and the great company. When Grey and his friends have dinner at home, or when we have guests, a taco bar is almost guaranteed because of its ease. Who doesn't love a self-serving situation with kids around? Feed ya'self all the tacos you want! 

But when I want to create this dinner party, I end up totally drawing a blank on ideas for what to serve and what goes well with tacos. Tacos are traditionally served with things like chiles, lime juice, cilantro and onion...but what about the sides?!

I'm looking for sides for steak tacos. What would be good with shrimp tacos? 

Hence this list, 25 sides to serve with tacos, just in time for Cinco de Mayo!

Besides the usual queso, bean dip, and jarred salsa - let's step outside the box and discover the perfect side dish and new taco toppings that'll change your taco experience from good to 'omg can we have that again tomorrow?!'

We're talking mild avocado crema and spicy salsa, Mexican street corn in a variety of ways from grilled corn on the cob to in a bowl, rice sides, charro beans, you name it! These are some of my favorite side dishes 

They all go so well with crispy, cheesy birria tacos, which honestly are one of my favorite tacos ever.

And that mango salsa goes so well tacos, especially seafood tacos. A love.

And if you're looking for more Mexican favorites, I have rounded up a list of delicious flavored margaritas and fun Cinco de Mayo recipes.
