Paleo Taco Tuesday

It's Tuesday, so you should be eating tacos! Growing up, I absolutely hated Mexican food, and I moaned and groaned when my mom said we would be heading to our local Mexican restaurant Senor Panchos. The only thing I was willing to eat was a plain chicken and cheese quesadilla with no salsa, veggies, or guacamole. I have clearly seen the light since then, and now my family misses the days when they had one less person to fight over the guacamole with!

Tacos are a perfect paleo meal that can be scaled down for one or doubled/tripled for a big group. The more the merrier, so grab some friends and enjoy some post-election Tuesday tacos! If you are feeling really dangerous, you can serve with raw veggies + guac and some refreshing NorCal margaritas (tequila, lime juice, and soda/sparkling water). 

P.S. ¡Ahora adoro comer la comida mexicana, y disfruto de hablar en español también! ¡Puedas escribir un comentario en español en el pie de página si quieras!
