Variety Of Tacos! May 21, 2012

I love tacos!!! Wait, maybe I should clarify that a bit, I love tacos that are not “typical American” tacos.  I figured out a long time ago that American’s were the ones who actually put all the gunk on tacos like, tons of cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes and any other part of the kitchen sink I may have forgotten.  A typical Hispanic taco is usually on a soft tortilla (corn or flour) some shredded meat (chicken,beef or goat), chopped onion, lots of cilantro, possibly some white cheese and that is it.  Simple but oh so flavorful because you can actually taste everything.  I really like the homemade corn tacos but I know it I get them in a restaurant they are usually loaded with fat because they fry them but sometimes it’s worth the grams.  However, Bandoritta has great flour and corn tortillas that are low in fat.

I want to share some out of the box ideas for low fat tacos with you today.  Some are with only veggies, some are with combinations you may feel are totally off the wall and some you may have heard of but with a different spin on them.  Either way I hope you enjoy!  For comments/questions please email me ramona@lowfatdiva@gmail.com
