My son asked me at dinner last night, if we could perhaps have some meat for dinner soon.
To be 13 again with a raging appetite, and 8% body fat. Poor kid!
Specifically he asked for pulled pork.
How to make that low-cal and healthily?
Tacos of course.
Start with stone ground corn tortillas.
Yes they take a few minutes to warm correctly (in a cast iron pan 20sec per side)
Layer one on top of the other in a folded clean dish towel
Just the perfect size to have more than one.
Loaded with onions and peppers, ripe avocado, savory refried beans
Lastly a squeeze of lime and dash of hot sauce.
Yep that’s on the menu tonight.
