Tasty Taco Flatbreads!

Taco Tuesday is a big deal all over the world. Ok maybe just the Instagram blogger world but it certainly is a really good midweek day to have this fun creative cuisine. There are so many ways to eat a taco. Soft shell, hard shell, in a salad. Today I have another way to eat a taco and that’s on a flatbread. I used my grill to char naan that I bought from Trader Joe’s (you can also use the top of your burner if your have a gas oven), but feel free to use any premade flatbread or any pizza dough for this yummy dish. It not only looks so pretty you want to devour it on sight, it actually tastes just as good if not better than it looks. I start by making my taco meat using Meal Mart chopped meat, which can be done in advance, and then added on top the veggies, lettuce, and what my kids call magic sauce, which is really just a crema, that brings all the flavors on the flatbread together. This is also a great dish for Memorial Day BBQs, it feeds a crowd and its super yum your guests will be raving!
