A healthy take on tacos

Tacos are one of the most popular foods around. But sometimes they can be high-calorie bombs loaded with cheese, sour cream and meat. Here we removed all the junk and made this healthy version that is completely guilt-free!

Summer veggie tacos with spicy avocado sauce recipe

Serves 4 (2 tacos per person)


For the spicy citrus avocado sauce

  • 2 small avocados, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small handful cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the tacos

  • 8 taco-sized tortillas
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 sweet red, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 small tomatoes, diced
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)


  1. In a blender add all of the ingredients for the avocado sauce. Blend until smooth and creamy and set aside.
  2. Spray a medium-sized pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, lightly saute the onions, peppers, zucchini and mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes.
