Taco Thursday!

 

Okay, so I know that it fails to live up to the alliterative Taco Tuesday–but it was Thursday…and we wanted tacos.  And though I wanted tacos, I also wanted a healthy dinner.

Keeping the majority of the tacos clean and healthy was pretty simple…we settled on chicken tacos, with beans, onion, shredded cheese, salsa, and avocado:

  • Chicken–grilled chicken breasts chopped up and pulled apart into small pieces
  • Beans–low sodium, organic black beans
  • Onion–chopped up, sauteed in coconut oil
  • Shredded cheese–organic Mexican blend cheese
  • Salsa–whatever salsa was in the fridge 
  • Avocado–sliced up

There was no real rhyme or reason to this combination for the taco, just that it was quick and we had most of it on hand.  I actually didn’t even use any spices except salt and pepper (maybe–I honestly can’t even remember if I used them!).  The onion sauteed in the coconut oil is so delicious and added enough flavor for me.  Plus, the addition of a couple spoonfuls of salsa contributed a little extra to the taste.

For the taco shell, I wanted to keep it clean and healthy, but I also needed to make it gluten-free.  So, I did some quick research and found a recipe for soft taco shells using coconut flour that worked out really well.  While unconventional, they’re very tasty, and the coconut flour offers a unique sweetness to the meal.
