Tacos are one of my favorite fast and easy weeknight dinner recipes that's packed with flavor and is always a crowd pleaser. Making a truly epic taco all comes down to the toppings. If you can get this right, you can take a bland chicken, shrimp, beef or tempeh taco and turn it into something you would easily find at your local trendy restaurant. So today, I'm sharing my Upgraded LA Street Taco recipe featured from my 21 Day Intermittent Fasting Program!
Plus, with today being Cinco de Mayo, you can whip these up for the evening's festivities while still making progress with your weight loss and wellness goals!
This recipe uses a combination of different toppings to keep your taste buds guessing. We have refreshing thinly sliced cabbage, punchy picked red onions and toasty pumpkin seeds. And don't forget the hot sauce!
Now let's dive into the GOODS. Enjoy one of my favorite simple recipes ~ the Upgraded LA Street Tacos!
Upgraded LA Street Tacos
2-3 small corn tortillas (OR if carb sensitive, use thinly sliced jicama or romaine lettuce)
4 oz. cooked protein of choice (chopped rotisserie chicken, cooked ground beef, grilled steak, cooked shrimp and tempeh are all great for this recipe)
1/4 cup black beans (remove if highly carb sensitive)
The Toppings (Pick as many as you like!):
pickled red onions*
thinly sliced purple or green cabbage
kimchi or saurkraut
1 Tbsp. toasted pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp. sour cream
1/4 cup guacamole (homemade or store-bought)
Combine all ingredients on your corn tortillas or lettuce and enjoy!
*Make your own pickled onions by adding thinly sliced red onions to a jar with 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup warm water, 1 Tbsp. sugar or honey, and 1 tsp. sea salt. It takes about an hour to pickle. Store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
Note: My favorite combination is shredded rotisserie chicken, radish, pickled red onions, toasted pumpkin seeds, cilantro, sliced purple cabbage, guacamole, sour cream, hot sauce and lime. In my opinion, the more toppings, the better. Don't be afraid to load up your tacos! You can also check out how I make my Upgraded LA Street Tacos with the video below.
