This is how we do it too.

When we do tacos we always have them ala carte. We use small tortillas like the taco trucks use. They're served and consumed as they come off the cooker. We also like to stand around the comal while eating. I like to top mine with chopped onions, cilantro, and salsa only. I can eat a dozen on a good day. And beer of course...:)
This is our taco ritual.

I almost always have refried beans because I like. Recently I made spicy pinto beans, not all smashed up. Guacamole is a terrific side too.

I agree with all the above. Also, corn with minced red peppers and a few minced japs, or corn on the cob smeared with a mix of chili powder, mayo, lime juice. A type of slaw made with shredded onion, maybe radish, and/or jicama with vinegar and sweetener.

What does everyone use as the "taco" itself? I prefer fresh made corn tortillas.

Store bought. Even the huge Latin community here uses mostly store bought totillas.

I usually make tacos with soft tortillas rather than the crisp corn tortillas. Mine are store bought.

Here, the crisp corn storebought shells. Or Tostitos. In Mexico, soft corn or flour.
