With Cinco de Mayo this week, we compiled the tastiest, most innovative and all around best healthy taco recipes on the web.
When I was a kid, “taco night” meant full fat ground beef, pinch of lettuce, and of course mountains of cheese in a hard corn taco shell. In today’s world of gourmet taco trucks and trendy Mexican restaurants, my mom’s Tuesday night staple is just not going to cut it.
The best part of taco night is variety. You could make a taco recipe every night of the week and never have the same thing. And if you ever needed an excuse to eat tacos, Cinco de Mayo would be it! This Saturday will be the taco night of all taco nights, so break out the sombreros, pour the margaritas and start mashing avocados. We’ve got the ultimate collection of the Best Healthy Taco recipes on the web for your ultimate Mexican Fiesta.
