So I know tacos aren't rocket science, But I will tell you that they can be healthier. Here's how we do tacos.
Extra lean turkey breasts.

Whole wheat tortillas. You can find the recipe here.  ( I grind my own wheat,) Or you can just buy them at the store.

Homemade Taco seasoning (If I'm in a pinch I use the target brand packet because it doesn't have any nasty stuff in it.)

2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon onion pwd
1/4 teaspoon garlic pwd

ALWAYS use 0% Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It tastes identical, But its nutritionally superior to sour cream. { And just a little tip, so you dont just have a huge glob of "Sour cream" in one spot, put it in a zip lock bag and cut a corner off, Then you can use it like a piping bag, and have "sour cream" in every bite, not just one big glob in one bite}

Use shredded spinach, They will never know the difference. Seriously. It's got more nutrients. Iceburg lettuce is basically worthless vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant wise, And spinach is a powerhouse.

If you have to have cheese {and yes, I HAVE to have cheese} Use 2%.

Use black beans instead of refried beans. They taste way better anyway.

And of course load up on avocado, tomato, onion, salsa... Just be sure to check the sodium content of your salsa, Sometimes they sneak a whole bunch of that in there. 

Okay, go eat some nutritionally superior tacos. MMMMMM...... TACOS!
