Low Carb Tacos recipe
Last night I decided to make up a batch of low carb tacos. They came out delish:
1 lbs ground pork (you could use any ground meat you have)
1 can Black Soy Beans
2 tbs taco seasoning (look for the lowest carb one you can find, for me it was presidents choice brand)
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic crushed
1/4 – 1/3 cup Salsa Verde (I had a bottle in my fridge, again use whatever salsa you have that’s low carb)
1/3 cup diced tomatoes
Some romaine lettuce leaves as taco shells
Some grated cheddar cheese for topping the tacos
Start browning the ground meat in a saute pan. Add the onions, garlic and taco seasoning and good until the meat is browned and the onions have softened (5-8 mins). Add the drained and rinsed black soy beans, salsa verde and diced tomatoes. Cook for another 5 minutes to let everything blend together and the tomatoes to cook down a little. Serve on romaine lettuce leaves sprinkled with some cheese (I used cheddar, cause it was what I had in the house).
Tips: Some cilantro would be great in this recipe, but I didn’t have any. Also you can spice it up with some chilli peppers or hot sauce.
I also often make “Cheese Taco Shells” which I will do a post on later, they are delish and very easy to make, just take a slice of provolone and microwave it on a piece of parchment paper for 60 seconds. Take it out and mold it in the shape of a taco shell, once cooled they make the perfect taco shell!
