Healthy Taco Recipes

Being a Texas girl, we LOVE our tacos!  However, I LIVE for trying new healthy recipes and especially love trying Healthy Taco Recipes.  It’s amazing what a little flavor and spices can do for almost anything to give you the look, feel and taste of tacos.  Here are some of my favorite Healthy Taco Recipes.  With a busy family of five, I often cook in bulk over the weekend, double the batch then freeze extras.  It makes Taco Tuesday super easy when all I have to do is pull out the taco meat, then throw tacos together!  Kids especially love knowing almost every Tuesday we are going to eat tacos… and try a new Healthy Taco Recipe!

Tacos are like a universal food and I like to say, they (along with almost all Mexican foods) speak my love language in food.  If you can dream it, you can wrap it!  I have tried tons of healthy versions but will share with you my TOP 6 Healthy Taco Recipes.  Please leave a comment with your favorite taco style or how you enjoyed one of these recipes.  Remember easy ways to lighten things up and cut out fat, that is traditionally associated with tacos, is by eliminating cheese and sour cream.  You don’t need to lose the falor, just the fat!  Add extra salsa, adocado and cilantro for natural flavors without the calories!


    One of my all time favorite vegan websites is Lemons & Love. This healthy taco recipe includes sweet potato, black bean & avocado taco was AMAZING! I like to trick my family every once in a while and do a meatless meal… trust me, it won’t kill you!  Lol  As I have said before, the trick is adding lots of delicious, mouth watering flavors.  The more bold, the less you miss meat!  Yes, Healthy Taco Recipes can be vegan too!

  2. Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Tacos

    In my opinion, tacos are not the same without cilantro and lime!  Here is a fun twist on shrimp tacos that are delicious!

  3. Soft Tacos With Spicy Chicken

    Simple.  Flavorful.  Delicious.  Best healthy taco recipe I recommend to all my family & friends.  I usually marinate 6-8 chicken breasts overnight for extra juicy flavors.  Then, after grilling them up, I will freeze the leftovers for next weeks Taco Tuesday meal.  Tossing the chricken breast in the crock pot for approx 4 hours is another easy way to prepare and quick and healthy taco dinner.  Just shred and serve.

  4.  Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps If you are like me and want to cut carbs yet not lose the flavor, an easy way to do that is to wrap it up in a lettuce wrap instead of using a tortilla.  Saves TONS of carbs and calories!  Try it & let me know how you like it.  I promise, as long as you fill it with all the good stuff, you won’t miss the tortilla at all!fish tacos
  5. Fish Taco Recipe with Pineapple Salsa

Another Healthy Taco Recipe is fish tacos!  You can keep it simple with traditional lettuce & tomato or jazz it up with pineapple salsa.  My trick with seasoning and cooking fish is to us… Mrs. Dash Chipotle… adds bold flavor!

6.  Steak Tacos with Red Peppers and Onions

 Ok I can’t forget about my meat lovers out there and include beef Healthy Taco Recipes.  Although I have transitioned to more of a vegan/ fish only girl (my tummy is much happier that way) I still grill up Steak tacos or even cook Crock Pot Brisket Tacos for my family or parties.  It’s hard to resist the smell of fresh grilled steak tacos or crispy edges of brisket meat that has been slow cokked overnight… Mmmm so good!  Here are my two favorite (and especially my families favorites beef Healthy Taco Recipes) Steak Tacos with Red Peppers and Onions and Crockpot Brisket Tacos
