Tacos Bhel (Jain Style) | How to make Tacos Bhel

Tacos Bhel came by in a jiffy. I had bought Taco Shells earlier last week to make something else, but unfortunately all the shells were broken. As with the Khakhra Channa Bhel, I thought of assembling a quick snack for a tea catch-up with a Jain friend along with her little toddler.


So, she’s off onions (obviously) but also a vegan.Although I wanted to use grated cheese, she couldnt have this with cheese. Both she and her kid loved this low spice snack a lot šŸ™‚


So, let not the bhel featured here limit you, You could add any thing that catches your fancy – cheese, crumbled paneer, refried beans, guacamole, onions, sev, boiled potatoes, tamarind chutneys or pretty much anything. You may aso add some murmura (puffed rice) like a typical Mumbaiyya Bhel Puri – the options are literally endless.

Your movie nights / Super Bowl / television binge watching just took a healthy twist with this dish :-))

So, lets get to make this super quick Tacos Bhel (did I mention its made in under 5 mins Zero cook snack)



  • Taco Shells – 8 to 10
  • Corn – fresh or boiled – 1/4 cup
  • Tomatoes – 1 medium (deseeded and chopped)
  • Chillies – 1 medium (chopped) – optional
  • Bell Pepper – 1/2 medium
  • Chaat masala and black salt – to taste
  • Lemon juice – 1/2 tsp
  • Crushed Tacos – a handful.


How to make and assemble

Mix all ingredients except Taco shells, stuff inside the whole Taco shells and serve immediately.

PS : As I had all the shells broken, we used them as canapes to top the quick bhel on top šŸ™‚

    Taco bhel or Mexican bhel is quite famous on our side of the world. Though we don't get Indian street food readily, most tea parties at home will have Mexican bhel. A delicious preparation.
