Cheese Melt: Microwaving the tortillas with cheese slightly helps in melting the cheese and binding the tacos together.
Taco Assembly: When assembling the tacos, try to fold them tightly to prevent the filling from spilling out while baking.
Customization: Feel free to customize your tacos with additional toppings such as sliced jalapeños, sliced olives, or your favorite hot sauce for extra flavor.
Fresh Ingredients: Use fresh ingredients like cilantro and lime juice for the best flavor. Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a bright, zesty taste to the dish.
