This is a Great Taco Sandwiches Recipe

Are regular tacos getting boring? Switch it up with these taco sandwiches! Even though this recipe takes a little more time and effort than regular tacos, it's still a quick and easy meal that can be put together on a busy night.

If you need some toppings for your taco sandwiches, chives and sour cream can always work well. Or, try cilantro or lime. These toppings are a great way to change up the flavor of your tacos, without radically altering the overall flavor profile.

Feel free to replace the beef in these sandwiches with whatever else you'd rather use. Chicken, tofu, turkey, and even seafood can all be great substitutions. You may need to shift the seasonings around depending on what filling you're using, so be prepared to do a little experimenting!

If you want to make these taco sandwiches just a little bit healthier but don't want to substitute out the beef, go for leaner beef. 93/7 or 94/6 beef is ideal, but get the leanest that your store has on offer. You can also opt for low- or reduced-fat cheddar cheese. The taste won't be noticeably different, but it will cut down on the calorie and fat content.
