Recipe Notes

  • Nutrition facts are calculated without any toppings, with a corn tortilla, and 1.5 tablespoons of sauce on each taco.  (You'll have a little extra sauce leftover.)
  • You can also substitute the cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp. salt, and black pepper for 1 Tbsp. of homemade taco seasoning mix.
  • Optional: Just before serving, lightly toast corn tortillas by placing them over an open gas flame for 10-15 seconds on each side.
