Taco Tuesday: A Healthier Alternative to Your Fav Mexican Fare
What’s a Tuesday without a taco? We’ve been using Taco Tuesday as the perfect excuse at adding a little fiesta into our work week siesta for years. It’s a cheap, easy and fun way to have everyone looking forward to dinner.
Here at RejuvaHealth, we’ve searched the recipe books to provide you with a simplistically delicious Mexican dish without the added calories that the entire guest list will enjoy.
Our secret? Substitute ground beef for ground turkey and taco shells for low carb tortillas. This will greatly reduce the fat intake and still provide the essential protein. Did we mention that each serving size is only 170 calories? Seconds, please!Makes 6 servings
