I am crazy for tacos, and I'm not talking about the ones you get at Taco Bell, either! (yuck!)
I like making my own, or getting them from this authentic Mexican restaurant near one of my work sites, called 5 Burros.
The great thing about tacos is that you can make them as low cal and low fat as you want, but still have a slammin', damn tasty meal experience with them. My favorite tacos are grilled chicken with lettuce, tomato, a bit of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese sprinkled on top, and some Pico de Gayo or red salsa. I prefer the hard, corn shell taco so you get that nice, satisfying crunch! Mmmmmm!
Even after eating 3 of these, I'm still not even over 500 calories! I don't do guacamole and sour cream, simply because I don't like them, so I can go taco wild if I feel like it. You can do the rice and beans thing on the side, or not. Usually, I'm happy just with the tacos!
Another great thing about doing tacos is that you can write your own ticket: beef, lamb, chicken, shrimp, or whatever you can think up can be the main filler. Also, you can do meat or no meat. As to what else to put in them, that's all according to your own tastes. I think that I have tried to put everything you can imagine in a taco, including okra. I have to admit, that one didn't work out so well...! ;)
A fun, tasty meal that I don't have to even count the calories for! That's what I'm talkin' 'bout! Bring 'em on! ;)
