SPICY TACOS with NACHO CHEEZE


After all the sweets that I have posted lately, here is a new savory dinner recipe. Spicy tacos with nacho cheeze. The tacos are made of fresh romaine lettuce filled with a mix of delicious fresh raw veggies as red bell pepper, cucumber, corn, red onion, green onion and cherry tomatoes marinated in lemon juice, paprika powder, sea salt and jalapeno chilis. These tacos are low fat, raw vegan and prepared in a second. You can fill them with whatever your heart desires and eat them plain, top them with a raw cheeze, salsa or guacamole.


I was in the mood for something hearty with my tacos, so I made a raw nacho cheeze. The nacho cheeze turned out awesome. It is creamy, rich in taste and even ages in the fridge - I like it better than the original and eat it with all kinds of raw salads or cut veggies. Have fun preparing these cute healthy hearty tacos-I am sure you will love them :)
