Recipe: Spiced Steak Tacos

RecipeRecipe

A delicious and quick recipe made with sliced steak.

I really love this recipe.  It has the perfect mixture of sweet and spicy.  I adapted this from a Marley Spoon to make it healthier and spicier.  Each taco has almost 15 grams of fiber and had ample protein to promote long-lasting satiety.

This is a delicious and healthy taco recipe. It originally called for corn taco shells, but I chose to replace them with a low carb / high fiber variety. I also added jalapeños.
