Looking for a perfect (and healthy!) way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo? These tacos are quick, super-easy and as spicy as you want them to be with a deep, smoky flavor from chipotles, cumin and smoked paprika. The sweet-tart pineapple salsa is the icing on the cake!
Today is a pretty big day here in the Foodie household… it’s my hubby’s first day coaching our 3-year-old’s T-ball team (since he has no experience with herding cats, I’d like to take a moment to wish him the best of luck! Or maybe a moment of silence…), this is my first blog post AND it’s Cinco de Mayo, I mean, COME ON!! It’s also Tuesday – otherwise known as Upper Fix day – my favorite (read: easiest) workout of the week. Does it get any better?!
As a lover of all things food, the glories of Mexican cuisine have certainly not escaped my notice. While I love, no – LOVE eating in Mexican restaurants, it’s not always easy to order something you can feel good about. Between the unlimited chips, the numerous fried entrées and the heaps of cheese that adorn so many menu items, it may even feel nearly impossible.
No worries though, I’ve got your back! I’ve adapted this recipe from Cooking Light Magazine, one of my favorite sources for healthy, delicious meals. I usually serve this with either grilled or roasted Mexican-spiced veggies on the side. This is one of my family’s very favorite Mexican dishes and a fantastic way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo without the guilt!
Thanks for checking out The Foodie and The Fix! Take a look around, I’ve got some great info, tips and tricks to give you a hand. If you have a favorite recipe that you’d like me to “fixify,” please contact me!
¡Disfrutas (enjoy – or at least that’s what google translator said)!
