Happy Taco Tuesday everyone! We’re super exciting to share this dietitian-approved roundup of healthy and flavor-filled taco Tuesday recipes here at Amee’s Savory Dish. We’re thrilled we could help Amee out as she takes a break to rest, heal, and rejuvenate after her surgery. (Our small contribution is nothing compared to the journey Amee’s traveled over the past few months.) And since we’re all about gathering families ‘round the dinner table for simple, satisfying meals that are also brimming with great nutrition, we thought this sampling of 30-plus tacos would hit the spot.
Tacos come in many shapes and sizes, and they’re versatile, which is always a plus, especially for families whose members may have different flavor, texture, and ingredient preferences. Looking for something gluten free? Go for corn tortillas versus wheat. Eating more meatless meals lately? Fillings like beans, lentils, and tofu should have you covered. Or maybe your kids are like ours, and traditional ground beef tacos are still a favorite.
No matter how you slice ‘em, there’s usually something for everyone when Tacos are served. Oh, and let’s not forget about the toppings—avocado, tomato, cheese, lettuce, plain Greek yogurt, cilantro—which boost the fun and nutritional GPA of tacos even more.
