It’s hard to find foods that are more simple and more popular than tacos. This staple of Mexican cuisine earned the hearts of people way beyond the land of its origin. The main beauty of tacos is their variety. You can make tacos for virtually any taste and as nutritious as you want them to be, which is extremely important for people with diabetes.

You can include all the food groups in proper amounts in your tacos and, as a result, create a balanced, diabetes-friendly meal packed in a delicious envelope of corn tortilla. Among taco stuffing ingredients can be meats, such as chicken, beef, pork, and fish, any vegetables, including tomatoes, onions, and peppers, and also a variety of beans, fruit, sauces, and spices.

With such an arsenal of ingredients at your disposal and just a little bit of creativity, you can come up with a restaurant-worthy number of healthy taco recipes to enjoy for yourself and impress your family and guests. Here are a few taco recipes that we like:

Chickpea Tacos

This is a recipe for a delicious and easy diabetic-friendly meal that is perfect for a weekend dinner.

Vegetarian Tacos

Vegetarian tacos are a perfect diabetes-friendly dinner option when meat is not on the menu.

Shrimp Tacos

Tacos with shrimp are among the most popular ones out there. – They’re light, delicious and diabetes-friendly.

Not in the mood or no time to cook? – Not a problem! It doesn’t take long to find tacos out there. Even some major fast food chains can satisfy your craving for tacos:
