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.
