Substituting seafood, fresh vegetables, beans, and/or grains for the ground beef in tacos and burritos boosts the nutrients and fiber, and lowers the fat and cholesterol, without sacrificing taste.
Setting out different fillings and toppings allows diners of all ages to custom create the perfect Taco or Burrito for their appetites.
Let your imaginations run wild.
Burrito or Taco Bar
* Select 2-3 fillings: Grilled Shrimp or Scallops, Blackened Fish, Refried beans, Veggie Taco filling, Brown rice, Red beans & rice, Black beans & rice, etc.
* Toppings: Salsa (Mild, Medium, or Hot), Sour Cream, Black Olives, Chopped Lettuce, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, Grated Cheese
* Assorted Taco Shells (hard or soft), Tortillas or Burritos
If desired, sauté onions and/or other veggies in vegetable or olive oil until softened. Heat refried beans, seafood, veggie taco filling, and/or cooked rice.
Heat taco shells (hard) according to package directions. Allow soft taco shells and burritos to come to room temperature for easy rolling.
Wonderful with Margaritas for the adults and lime-ade for the kids. Olé!
No rules. Just . . . Mangia!
