Who doesn’t love Taco Tuesday? You can sign me up EVERY Tuesday for tacos! I recently discovered the CAULIPOWER brand and it is honestly taking Taco Tuesday to the next level. The company takes pride in creating some of our favorite dishes with cauliflower. From pizza crusts, to cauliflower tortillas. Here is why I liked them. I am the person who piles their tacos with all of the typical American toppings like sour cream, cheese and salsa. As such, these tacos are not always the best dish for me! With CAULIPOWER I can have something that is a bit better for. So here is how I Taco Tuesday with CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas.
I know our thing now is to go super fancy with tacos, but when I am making them at home I keep it simple because simple reminds me of childhood. You know back when you would grab the taco seasoning pack (now I get low sodium!) and a pound of ground beef. Cook everything in about 15-20 minutes. Then have a buffet of toppings like salsa, lettuce, refried beans and cheese to start. We would take taco shells, soft tacos and tortilla chips to make our own taco creations.
I prepped everything as I normally would then tor the CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas, dropped it in the skillet for a few minutes. You can microwave them too, but the skillet just felt more authentic. Kind of how the authentic Mexican restaurants around Houston warm up your tortillas for you! In terms of texture, the CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas remind me of your typical corn tortilla. The have the durability and taste of a regular tortilla so again it’s a win.
As far as the CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Tortillas, they are available in original and grain-free, plus they are gluten free. Then when you check the ingredients you will see that Cauliflower is the first ingredient listed. Another good sign. All and all, it meets many of the markers we use today for “better for you” food items and it tastes good too!
Where to Find
CAULIPOWER provides a nifty store finder on their website, enabling you to find a local grocery store that carries them. I found them in Sprouts and noticed that Wal-Mart, HEB and some Whole Foods also carry them. Just a note, these will likely be in the freezer or refrigerated section. Also try looking for them in the healthy food aisles at your larger grocery stores. I went with tacos first because I truly am a simple foodie at heart. I do plan to make some quesadillas or perhaps a burrito with my remaining taco fillings. I will be sure to share the results!
