Tango Taco Boats

taco boats
After going gluten free, we worked on thinking “outside the box.” Instead of bread or simple carbohydrates, we replace the carbs with a healthier option. Sometimes we like to skip the taco shells and eat taco boats. They are fun and healthy and a great option for lunch. And paired with my Party Heart Taco Meat and Nacho Cheese Sauce it packs a nice punch.  enJOY!
