Healthy Chicken Tacos

AmateurKitchen's picture
Tacos are a quick and easy southwest style dinner that the whole family will love. We're lightening up these tacos by adding in chicken instead of beef to cut out over 80% of the fat, using reduced sodium taco seasoning and cutting out 25% of the calories in the cheese toppings. This classic dish is getting a makeover but is still packed with all the familiar flavors.
