A crunchy taco hidden inside a soft taco? What a cool idea! Sadly, the Taco Bell version is a little LAME in the stats department. So, we did what we always do and gave it a makeover. All you have to do is assemble and chew!Ingredients:
1/4 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or Morningstar Farms
1/8 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix
2 tbsp. fat-free refried beans
1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb/High Fiber Original (not Large) tortilla
, or alternative below
1 standard-sized yellow corn taco shell
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
1 tbsp. shredded fat-free cheddar cheeseDirections:
Place soy crumbles in a small microwave-safe bowl and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Microwave until hot, about 30 seconds. Stir and set aside.
In another small microwave-safe bowl, nuke beans until hot, about 15 seconds. Stir and set aside.
Place tortilla flat on a microwave-safe plate and nuke until warm, about 10 seconds. Spread beans evenly over the exposed side of the tortilla. Set aside.
Warm shell in the microwave for 30 seconds. Place shell over the bean-covered tortilla -- line up the shell's bottom with the tortilla's center, and align the right side of the shell with the right side of the tortilla. Gently press on the inside of the shell's right side to seal. Pick up the entire right half of the taco-tortilla, and fold it over so the left sides align. Gently press on the inside of the shell's left side to seal. (If it cracks a little, that's okay!)
Fill shell with seasoned crumbles, lettuce, and cheese. Enjoy!
