Making tacos at home is a fun and easy way to enjoy the delicious flavours of Mexican cuisine. To start, you'll need to gather your ingredients. The basic components of a taco are tortillas, meat or protein of your choice, and toppings such as cheese, lettuce, tomato, and salsa. You can also add other ingredients like avocado, sour cream, or coriander to personalise your tacos.

Here are some ideas for healthy tacos that you can enjoy on Taco Tuesday (or any day of the week).

  • Fish tacos: Swap out beef or chicken for grilled or baked ZeroPoint fish, such as barramundi or salmon. Top with fresh salsa, avocado, and a squeeze of lime juice.
  • Veggie tacos: Load up on veggies, such as sautéed capsicums and onions, roasted sweet potatoes, and black beans. Top with a dollop of 99% fat-free Greek yoghurt or guacamole for added creaminess.
  • Turkey tacos: Turkey mince is a lean protein that works great in tacos. Add in your favourite taco seasoning, and top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and a sprinkle of cheese.
  • Cauliflower tacos: Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable that can be roasted or grilled to create a delicious, meat-free taco filling. Add in some black beans and a drizzle of hot sauce for a spicy kick.

No matter what type of taco you choose, make sure you opt for wholegrain tortillas where possible and load up on fresh veggies for added fibre and nutrients. Enjoy!
