Lemon Cheesecake Dessert Tacos

We had an ‘ingredient challenge of the week’ this week at Black Iron Nutrition, and the ingredient was corn tortillas. I wanted to get as creative as possible, it is a challenge and I’m competitive, but I also wanted to keep it simple enough that you would actually want to make these when you have a craving for something sweet. They’re healthy and BOMB, so I think I hit the nail on the head with this one.

This recipe only makes one serving (3 mini tacos) and I’m glad I did that because I devoured them. Had I made more, I don’t know that I would have stopped eating them. However, the whole recipe is only 80 calories (macros below) so if you made a few servings you wouldn’t feel bad about it. Plus, you can always share.

I found a jar lid to cut my mini taco shells out. If you utilize as much space as possible, you’ll use exactly half of the corn tortilla. But don’t waste the scraps! I sprayed those with some cooking spray and sprinkled a little salt on them. Then I baked them with the taco round and made some tortilla strips that I had with dinner that night.
