If you prefer your meat to be of the white meat variety, then making turkey tacos using ground turkey breast (or ground chicken if you prefer) is a great way to lighten up your tacos and cut out some of the unnecessary fat. These turkey tacos combine turkey meat with healthy veggies like zucchini, peppers and onions. The seasoning is the secret ingredient here, with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.
Lighter Beef Tacos
Traditional beef tacos involve a combination of ground beef cooked in taco seasoning with various taco toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, sour cream and guacamole. And there is absolutely nothing not to like about that traditional dish. But if you want to lighten it up a bit, try this recipe, which uses lean ground sirloin (aka less fat) and low-fat corn tortillas to cut some calories and make them a bit healthier.
