If you are interested in growing your taco garden in pots, you might try some of the container varieties from Renee's Garden such as: Heirloom Stupice or Super Bush.
Herbs are easy to grow on a patio or even indoors. For a taco garden you might try some cilantro, like this heirloom variety.
There are also many nice varieties of lettuce that can be grown directly in the garden, or in a container. I really like Sweetie Baby Romaine and Renee's Baby Leaf Blend.

Roma tomatoes are great for making tomato sauce. Try this pizza sauce recipe with the kids. You might try planting this Roma Sauce Tomato variety to make some yummy pizza sauce.
