NADIA'S  TUNA TAQUITOS : THE RECIPE AND REVIEW

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.

MICROS : this recipes’ superstars

TUNA

  • Selenium: supports thyroid health

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: anti-inflammatory properties

  • Niacin: supports brain health

KIMCHI

  • Probiotics : supports gut-health and overall health of the body

  • High in Vitamin C and Carotene

  • Rich in: Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Calcium and Iron

AVOCADO

  • Monounsaturated Fats (MUFAs) : support heart and brain health

  • Fat-Soluble Vitamin A, Vitamin E and K

  • Water-Soluble Vitamin B and C

  • Trace minerals (magnesium, potassium, iron, copper)

    • Fun Fact : one avocado has the same amount of magnesium as 2 bananas ;)

  • Good source of fiber (especially in hass avocados)

THE REVIEW

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.

DIRECTIONS

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)
