Play around with toppings – it’s actually unlimited! I like serving these tacos with fresh veggies and greens like lettuce or microgreens to add some more fiber and micronutrients to the diet.

For kids, you can take out some of the meat before adding the chili flakes and offer some fresh tomatoes or this Tomato Sauce instead of salsa for topping.Ground Beef Tacos – healthier option of your favourite tacos
