Tacos and you

Most people would say , I want and love Tacos. Some of us can't eat raw peppers or onions, so why not cook them first. We really avoid certain food items for one reason or another.

If we think of what the ingredients are that we can't eat and then find a way to fix it, we will be able to eat that dish with a little adjustment.

Tacos can be spiced right for one person, but you might not be able to eat them. So let's change it to what you can eat. Tacos can be made many different ways, with different meats and toppings but the other ingredients might be what causes the problem.

Learning to change the ingredients is the key to enjoying all you can from the foods we like to eat.

So, let's give it a try.

Good to know

The foil boats are made by making a few wide folds

in your foil. Tear enough foil to hold 3-4 tacos.

The foil will keep your tacos upright and ready to serve

The cheese added to bottom of the tacos prevents a wet fall apart taco.

Preparing for others

Often we tend to forget the dietary needs of those sharing a meal with us. In order to make sure someone else can eat and enjoy the meal without worry of digestive problems, we sometimes have to alter the ingredients.

Some people cannot eat raw veggies or spicy foods such as pepper, tomato based sauces and many of us have to watch our salt intake. If we keep this in mind and adjust the ingredients, most likely everyone will be able to enjoy their meal without worry.
