    Cinco de Mayo with the Cooking Light Diet

    Pop quiz: What do you get when you combine Taco Tuesday with Cinco de Mayo? Something to look forward to in 2020!

    Seriously, though, let’s overlook what an absolute dumpster fire this year has been and focus on the positives. Today is both the social media-ordained day of tacos and America’s favorite day on which to eat tacos. What is not to love about today? That question was rhetorical.

    We’ll be celebrating with some delicious strawberry margaritas and—stop us if you saw this coming—tacos! Spontaneous, right? Anyway, our main concern with dinner this evening was trying to figure out which delicious taco recipe to enjoy. After all, our meal plan can accommodate a year’s worth of Taco Tuesdays. How then does one pick just one?

    By using the ol’ phone-a-friend method (of sorts). We asked our Facebook Community members what recipes they were preparing. After considering their responses, we decided to make… well, the last recipe below. But you should know if you want tacos today or any day, a Cooking Light Diet subscription means having enough taco, nacho, enchilada, and quesadilla recipes to last a lifetime. Dig in, don’t forget your marg, and subscribe today if you haven’t already!
