A Journey Through Time and Flavor

  • Grilled Nopales– Their story stretches back centuries. Indigenous communities in Mexico have long appreciated the nutritional value and versatility of nopales, utilizing them in various dishes. Grilling them brings out a unique textural contrast and a mild, slightly citrusy flavor, adding a touch of history and cultural significance to your table.
  • Esquites– A more recent creation, believed to have emerged during the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), esquites were born from street vendors seeking resourceful ways to use leftover corn kernels. Today, this creamy, sweet, and slightly spicy side dish stands as a testament to Mexican ingenuity and its deep love for corn.
  • Grilled Spring Onions– While their exact origins are a bit hazy, the allure of grilled spring onions stretches back centuries across various cultures. Evidence suggests their use in ancient Mesopotamia, and they were likely incorporated into dishes throughout the Mediterranean and Asian regions as well. Grilling them brings out a unique smokiness and caramelized sweetness, adding depth and complexity to any dish.
  • Chiles toreados (chiles gueros)– These vibrant grilled peppers add a burst of tangy zest and a subtle kick of spice. They’re like little flavor bombs, elevating your taco experience to a whole new level, one delicious bite at a time. Grilled to perfection chiles gueros will give you the kick you want.
Chiles Toreados, Nopales, and Spring Onion Grilled


Take, for instance, the legendary guacamole. The simplicity of its core ingredients – ripe avocados, lime juice, onions, and a hint of cilantro – belies the complex harmony of flavors and textures it possesses. Its cool creaminess contrasts against the warmth of a grilled chicken taco, while the subtle acidity cuts through the richness of slow-cooked pork carnitas. The pairings that guacamole can go with are endless, it is perfect with pretty much everything. Guacamole is even perfect just with some tortillas chips.

A quality guacamole in Irvine is a testament to California’s bounty of avocados and the expertise of the taqueros. The avocados are perfectly ripened, mashed to that ideal balance of smoothness and chunkiness that provides both creaminess and textural interest. The freshness is evident in its vibrant color and the clean, unadulterated avocado flavor that shines through.

The Vibrant Pico de Gallo

Then there’s pico de gallo, the salsa of textures. It’s a celebration of raw ingredients, where crisp onions, juicy tomatoes, and the herbaceous punch of cilantro dance together in a burst of garden-freshness. Unlike its cooked counterparts, pico de gallo is all about the interplay between the crispness of the vegetables and the tangy lime squeeze that binds them together. Prepared with the best produce Irvine has to offer, this salsa is a reminder that sometimes, the simplest combinations are the most satisfying. Pico de gallo pairs well with chicken tacos, especially if you add more cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

Both Guacamole and Pico de gallo are made fresh with local California ingredients. Buying local helps small businesses and local businesses grow, so it helps our local economy. The tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime, and avocado are as fresh as they can when the premium sides are ordered. It gives a hint of freshness to your taco catering event.
