NADIA'S TUNA TAQUITOS : THE RECIPE AND REVIEW
If you like tacos, I have a good feeling you’re going to like Nadia’s Tuna Taquitos.
I’m a huge fan of tacos, especially crunchy shelled tacos. But most crunchy tacos are made with corn shells, which a lot of people don’t digest well. So when I saw Nadia’s Tuna Taquito recipe, I was hoping it would be amazing so I could share it with you.
And guess what?! It was. And here it is.

WHAT I LIKED:
FLAVOR : The flavor of these taquitos is extremely unique due to the combination of the tuna, vegan cream cheese, kimchi and the kick from the jalapeño . I loved it.
CONSISTENCY : Maybe I am biased… but you can’t go wrong with a crunchy Siete wrapped anything. The slightly toasted Siete Wrap gives these the perfect crunch factor.
EASY : These are really fast and easy to make which is a BIG PLUS.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE:
The only thing I didn’t like is that I didn’t make more the first time I tried these ;)
here is how this recipe ranks (scale of 1-5)
FLAVOR - 5
TEXTURE - 5
QUANTITY - 5
Spice level - 2 (a little touch of spice)
ease of fitting into MACROS - 5
WORTH THE MACROS? YES! and not just on taco tuesday.
SPECIAL INGREDIENTS NEEDED
(I buy all of these ingredients at Whole Foods - I recommend you check there first ;) )
Photos do not include every step, just thought it could be helpful to have some examples of what the process looks like. (Let me know if this is helpful to you).
MAKE THE GUACAMOLE
STEP 1 : Mash avocado and combine with almond yogurt, lime juice, scallions, cilantro salt and pepper.
SET GUAC ASIDE, MAKE TAQUITOS
STEP 2 : In small bowl, combine tuna, jalapeño hot sauce and almond cream cheese.
STEP 3 : Lay out a butter lettuce leaf, and 2 Almond Siete Tortillas
STEP 4 : Put a dry pan on low - medium and slightly warm the almond tortillas
(This makes them easier to roll without them falling apart)
STEP 5 : Take off of pan when slightly warm and divide the tuna filling between the 2 tortillas and the lettuce wrap.
STEP 6 : Roll the filled tortillas and place on pan until tortilla gets golden, then flip and repeat.
STEP 7 : Serve and ENJOY!!!!
YOU CAN EASILY MAKE THESE WITHOUT THE TORTILLAS (OR WITH DIFFERENT TORTILLAS)
