So I made flatbread tacos with the flatbread recipe from yesterday. I adapted the recipe from one I found in a recent issue of Taste of Home. The whole family loved these! The nice thing about the flatbread is it is thicker and more durable than a tortilla, so you can really load them with filling.
The flatbread would also make a great base to build a navajo taco on and much healthier than a fried piece of dough. I also love to add beans to taco filling. It stretches the meat and also adds some fiber to your meal. I chose to add the tomatoes with the chipotle chilies because I love the smokiness of the chipotle chilies. You can also make this same meat mixture to for taco salads.
Yum! I put lettuce, shredded cheese, olives, green onion, and one spoonful of each reduced fat sour cream, salsa, and guacamole on my flatbread tacos. I’m getting hungry just thinking about this again.
