Grilled Corn & Quinoa Tacos

Happy Taco Tuesday!

I’m so excited to share these healthy vegetarian and gluten-free tacos with you all in hopes that it will inspire you to make them at home for friends and family. Tacos are the best because you can literally put everything into one tortilla, in this case lettuce ‘tortillas’ and bite into a mouthful of yumminess! Also Tacos are the perfect recipe for those watching their diet because they can be made gluten-free, paleo, vegan or vegetarian style how I like them ­čśë

I made these┬áon the lighter side by keeping them vegetarian so that you can eat more than just a couple and add more veggies to your diet like me ­čśë and added a bunch of fresh crumbled Queso Fresco Casero┬«, my fave!
