Taco night just got a whooooooole lot better.
Let me preface today’s recipe by saying that spiralizing isn’t just about subbing in veggie noodles into your favorite pasta and noodle dishes. Spiralizing is about changing the way you eat vegetables and making that experience more exciting.
Would you ever think to put spaghetti into your tacos? Unless you watch iCarly, you probably don’t.
Well, you probably wouldn’t put spaghetti into your tacos because that’s, well, a lot of unnecessary carbs – hard tacos and spaghetti are two foods that are good enough on their own.
I found out about iCarly’s spaghetti tacos (called iHungry tacos) when I was up late at night, surfing YouTube (I probably started off with a simple search for “how to sew a button” and ended up wasting hours, watching shark attack videos and of course, learning about spaghetti tacos.)
This is the video.
These are unbelievably delicious. They’re a bit messy (like all hard tacos are) but they’re well worth it. The key? Trim your noodles!!! Make sure the noodles aren’t longer than 3″ each, so it’ll be easier for you to eat (and your kids.)
Now, if you’re anti hard-taco shell, you can make the second version of this recipe, which is for a taco “bowl” which is basically just all of the filling of a taco, just over a bowl of lettuce. Actually, when Lu and I have “taco night,” I usually make myself the salad version and I get him corn tortillas.
Have you ever tried spaghetti tacos? What are your favorite taco ingredients?
