Tacos, Tacos, Tacos – I love tacos!
Tacos are one of my favorite healthy carb meals.
The key is to just use ingredients that are minimally processed and as local and fresh as possible.
Here are a few of my favorite Healthy Taco Recipes:
- Wild Salmon Tacos with Peach and Pineapple Sauce
- Seared Tuna Tacos with Peach Salsa and Avocado Cilantro Cream
- Trader Joe’s Black Garlic Beef Tacos
- Bacon Ribeye Tacos with Avocado Salsa
- Lobster, Bacon Tacos with Kiwi-Jalapeno Relish
- BBQ Tacos
AND if you want to make your own corn tortillas, here is a great and simple tortilla recipe!
Home-made Corn Tortillas Recipe:
2 Cups Masa Harina (make sure you get non-genetically modified corn)
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 to 2 cups hot water
Put the masa harina into a bowl and add in salt.
Heat the water then slowly add it into the masa harina and salt. Mix as you go. I don’t usually use more than 1 1/2 cups. Add water until the dough is spongy, but not sticky.
Roll dough into a log and wrap in a damp paper towel. Let the dough sit for 1 hour.
Then roll out 2 inch balls after the dough has sat for 1 hour. Flatten the dough using a rolling-pin or a tortilla press. (I use a tortilla press and put cling wrap on both sides of the press so the dough won’t stick.
I then cook the tortillas in a hot cast iron about 1 minute on each side or until the tortilla is cooked to your liking.
