Taco Tuesday (Recipe)

Taco Tuesday (Recipe)

I’m all about Taco Tuesday! No like, if I could have tacos everyday I would. tacotuesday

Here’s an easy & flexible taco recipe for all my fellow Mexican food lovers out there! I used chicken, but you can use beef, fish, or tofu as well. You’ll have to excuse me for the lack of pictures — I was too hungry to stop what I was doing! I don’t have measurements either because it varies based on appetite and personal taste. 

Enjoy! xo NM

INGREDIENTS:

  • Protein of your choice. I marinaded the chicken with lemon, olive oil, salt & pepper but you can add taco seasoning as well if you wish (I don’t because it’s high in salt)
  • Tortillas or taco shells (I’m gluten-free so I used corn tortillas)
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Beans (I used black but pinto is fine if you prefer)
  • Optional: Veggies or chips to use as your side dish

DIRECTIONS:

Step 1:

  • Cut up your protein into small pieces
  • Spray your pan with oil of your choice (I used coconut) and heat
  • Place the cut up chicken in the pan and heat on medium

Step 2:

  • While your chicken is cooking, begin toasting your tortillas or taco shells
  • If you choose to have veggies as your side, go ahead and broil them in the oven on high
  • Mix the protein around to ensure all sides are being cooked

Step 3:

  • Remove the tortilla or taco shells from the toaster or oven once ready and place onto your plate
  • Add the cooked protein to the tortillas/taco shells

Step 4:

  • Warm up your beans if from a can (I used a stove but you can use a microwave)
  • Add the beans to your tacos

Step 5:

  • Add cilantro

Step 6:

  • Add avocado or guacamole

Step 7:

  • Remove your veggies from the oven and plate. Obviously if you’re going with chips, then serve those up

Tada! Easy & yummy tacos!
