Healthier Taco Tuesday Picks

Jul 20, 2021
Happy Taco Tuesday AND Trash Panda Tuesday! Today we’re bringing you a two-for-one celebration with some of our favorite taco ingredients to make delicious, #trashpandaapproved tacos. From tortillas to seasoning, we’ve got the goods to make an epic Taco Tuesday spread.

Siete Foods Cassava and Coconut Tortillas

Siete Foods makes a ton of great Mexican foods, and these tortillas are at the top of our list. Made with cassava flour, they are a great gluten-free option. Siete has a whole line of grain-free tortillas, including almond flour and chickpea flour versions. After trying a few, we think the Cassava ones are tasty and hold together nicely. Pro tip: heat them up over a gas flame to get a little char on them.

Upton’s Naturals Chorizo Seitan

If you like your Taco Tuesday meatless, try this Chorizo Seitan. Seitan is a traditional Japanese food made by rinsing the starch away from wheat and retaining the protein. It crumbles with a texture similar to ground beef and this mildly spicy version has lots of flavor, making it the perfect taco base.

Primal Palate Taco Seasoning

This is a great versatile seasoning that is equally good on beef, chicken, and carnitas.
We love the organic ingredients of this spice blend. You might assume all spice blends are made of just spice - but keep an eye out for sneaky ingredients in some brands like natural flavor, maltodextrin, and sugar.

Trader Joe’s Salsa Autentica

This salsa keeps it simple and delicious with just six ingredients: tomato puree, yellow chili peppers, salt, vinegar, dried onion, and garlic. Trader Joe’s has a few good salsas that are #trashpandaapproved. We found at least two that have zero harmful or questionable ingredients in the Trash Panda App.
We hope you craft some delicious tacos using some of these Trash Panda favorites. Tag us on Instagram when you do! And let us know what other #trashpandaapproved taco products you love.
