The humble taco continues to inspire culinary creativity across the globe — just take the Korean barbecue-filled tacos of Los Angeles and the chicken tikka masala tacos of New York City. The tortilla is more or less a canvas, ready to be filled with whatever ingredients your heart desires, no matter if that’s roasted sweet potatoes and salty feta or oven-fried avocado and spicy beet salsa.
The taco’s versatility makes it our go-to for an easy-to-fix, low-calorie dinner. Our approach is to start with a quality corn tortilla from the neighborhood Mexican market, and stuff it with veggies, lean meat, flavorful garnishes and bright salsas. We’ve got a taco to please anyone’s palate — a whopping 15 options, to be exact. Each provides a balance of colors, textures and flavors, and you can always add extra salsa if you’re a chili addict. Eight of these taco recipes are vegetarian, and all contain less than 300 calories per taco. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get this taco party started.
