Easy Healthy Beef Tacos

Tacos are a staple meal at our house. We like all types – beef, chicken, pork. I was thrilled to find this recipe for easy healthy beef tacos. It works for my current weight loss journey on WW and the family liked it.

The level of spice was fine for my daughter and I. However, it was a little too spicy for my husband. He has had health issues that have messed up his stomach and it just can’t tolerate food with much spice to it. So next time I am going to try to half the amount of coriander and see if it will work better for him.

When I served these easy healthy beef tacos for my family, I had the tacos on corn tortillas. However, my husband and daughter used flour tortillas. My husband and daughter also used the toppings that they like on these tacos.

I love recipes like this where my family can eat things they way they wasn’t to, but I can eat it the way I need to for my weight loss. So this recipe below is 9 points with my WW personal points. A link in the recipe below can help you figure out the points for your personal points.

Are these tacos suitable for individuals following a gluten-free diet?
Yes, you can make these tacos gluten-free by using corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. Also, check the taco seasoning packet for gluten ingredients or choose a gluten-free taco seasoning that is certified gluten-free.

Can I prepare the beef mixture in advance and store it for later use?
Yes, you can prepare the beef mixture in advance and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Simply reheat it on the stovetop or in the microwave before assembling your tacos.

How can I ensure the beef is cooked properly?
To ensure the beef is cooked properly, make sure to cook it over medium-high heat, breaking it apart with a spatula and stirring occasionally until it’s browned and no longer pink. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the beef reaches 160°F (71°C) for food safety.
