Who doesn’t love a good taco? I mean, I live in Los Angeles, where every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday. There are two things I’ve learned about people in Los Angeles, they love their taco Tuesday and weekend brunch is a sport. If I had realized this earlier in life, I would have just skipped everything else and moved right out here. What is better than an authentic taco or bottomless mimosas?
Ever since I’ve been diagnosed with diabetes and I’m trying to take care of myself I have to curb the tacos and mimosas. For mimosa’s I’ve just stopped putting the sugary orange juice in them and just had the champagne. But, I had not found a good substitute for taco’s, until now. My husband found a place called ‘Mr. Tortilla’ that advertised that they had low carb tacos, 1 net carb per taco. We don’t usually drive out to the valley for anything if we can avoid it, but a taco seemed fitting. Also, pandemic traffic is a lot lighter.
We made a quick pit stop in the store because we needed fresh cilantro, sour cream, and tomatoes for these tacos. We had the rest of the ingredients at home. I took one onion, one red pepper, and one yellow pepper and chopped them up. I sauteed the onion until it was translucent in olive oil and then added the peppers. Then I cut up two cloves of garlic and added it to the pan along with Kinders Taco Seasoning. The last thing I did was add the juice of one lime.
I took some leftover turkey that I chopped up, the juice from one lime and taco seasoning, and warmed it up in a pan.
To make this crema, I took approximately a cup and a half of sour cream, a whole avocado, a bunch of cilantro, the juice of one lime, two cloves of garlic, and I buzzed it in the food processor.
Then I put it all together! I put tacos in the bottom, then peppers and onions, turkey, some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, diced Roma tomatoes, and a dab of crema. Then I garnished it with some fresh cilantro.
