Green taco wrap is glorious.
Call it taco salad if you wish, all I know is that green “spinach” wrap is everything you need from nutritious to delicious. I use to not care about tacos, like seriously, why would I not? Please don’t judge me before you hear the entire gist.
First of all, I was born in Nigeria, and in my country of birth, nothing like taco existed. Probably there might be tacos in Nigeria right now, it’s 2018 baby. But when I was growing up in 9ja, there was rarely anything like tacos or wraps. To be fair, I never saw any.
Secondly, I never really liked cheese, and I have always felt that cheese is a mandatory component of taco. So I gave up trying even though living in America. Ok, a moment of truth, now I do eat cheeses. Say cheese (lol).😁
Thirdly, whenever I hear the word “taco,” I feel that it has to be fried, like the crunchy tacos. Well, as I started to educate myself, I realized that there are many ways to make and enjoy tacos or “Tuesday tacos” (BTW Tuesday taco is a Twitter hast tag, ding!). With this in mind, I took a special interest in the “green spinach taco wraps,” first, I was attracted by its colors, and then, I wanted to make it my way. #Winning
Truthfully, I have tried this recipe ton of times before finalizing it this way, and so I am happy to share it with you; feel free to add your personal touch and make it your way. However, if you desire to get my exact result, you will have to make it my way. Fair enough?
It’s time for a healthy taco.
Here’s all you will need to make my healthy taco aka “taco salad”
Green (mission garden spinach) wrap: this is the star of the day, in other words without this wrap, this dish would not be happening. I love using a big round tortilla, because am generous when it comes to the filling. If your taco/tortilla is too small, it can only contain so much. And this wrap provides a healthy serving of carbohydrate as well.
Chicken breast: equally important in making this dish a classic is the addition of some protein. It is essential to add high-quality protein such as beef, chicken, turkey, etc., I personally love to make it with chicken. Chicken breast is perfect, but if you have leftover chicken meat from any other part, it works as well. In case you cook your chicken with the skin as I sometimes do, that’s ok, peel off the skin and use the meat.
Baby spring mix, and baby spinach; I like to mix them up. You are free to use only one of them. I love the texture of them both in the mouth. This ensures you get a good serving of vegetable while treating yourself to a tasty taco. Alongside this, you will also need some avocado, salt, pepper, little mayonnaise, and a sprinkle of dry cranberry.
