My husband and I ate a lot more Mexican when we lived in St. Louis. We haven’t had a lot of it since we’ve moved, but it certainly hasn’t changed our love for the food.
I love to make tacos at home, but wanted to try something a little different. I stumbled upon this WW Tostada Recipe and thought why not? It was quite tasty.
The original recipe calls for jicama, but I wasn’t able to find any. So I did a little digging and found that water chestnuts were a good substitute — they wouldn’t alter the taste, but would add a bit of crunch.
The hubs enjoyed them too, which is always a win-win. Black beans, corn, avocado and cilantro are some of my favorite ingredients. This is a perfectly flavorful dish that will be kind to your diet. Enjoy!
