Since the weather is getting much colder now, at least here in the Midwest, eating a nice warm meal is much needed. One of my favorite meals to make before completing the Whole30 program was tacos. Since I could no longer eat corn tortillas or black beans, I decided to make potato tacos with romaine hearts as the tortilla. The recipe is as follows:
- 5 red potatoes
- hearts of romaine
- yellow onion
- 1 container of white mushrooms
- olive oil
- tsp paprika
- tsp cumin
- tsp cayenne pepper
- tsp black pepper
- Herdez salsa verde
- homemade or store bought guacamole
- 1/2 lime
- Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees
- Wash and dice all the potatoes
- In a small container, mix together a tsp of each of the spices
- Drizzle a little olive oil in a pan and add the potatoes
- Rub the oil and the spice mixture all over until they are evenly coated
- Put in potatoes in oven and bake until golden brown
- While potatoes are baking, chop the onions and mushrooms.
- Saute over medium heat with a little oil
- Sprinkle a little bit of the seasonings on the vegetables. When both are tender, and the onions are translucent squeeze a the juice of 1/2 a lime on top
- Separate one romaine heart and rinse
- Take the potatoes out of the oven. When cool, assemble your tacos.
- Inside each lettuce leaf, put a spoonful of the potatoes.
- Top with the onions and mushrooms, salsa verde ,and guacamole.
