These Tomato Basil Soft Tacos are an light and healthy take on traditional tacos! I use turkey, tomato, fresh basil, yellow bell peppers, and mozzarella cheese and wrap them up in a flour tortilla. I top these tacos with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, making them easy to make any night of the week!

Today I'm sharing a super easy and healthy lunch or dinner recipe. I have been making these Tomato Basil Soft Tocos a lot recently! They came about when I bought mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil because I was going to make my Napoli Pizza. However, I forgot to make pizza dough, haha.

So, while hungry, and rummaging through my fridge I came up with this recipe for Tomato Basil Soft Tacos. We also have a lot of tortillas right now, as I buy cases online of organic tortillas from La Tortilla Factory, as I can't buy organic tortillas here in town. So, those stuck out at me. And I wanted to add protein, so I grabbed the turkey. Tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, yellow bell pepper, and a drizzle of your favorite balsamic salad dressing, and you have a super quick and easy lunch or dinner recipe!

Ingredients & Health Benefits

Deli Turkey: I use Organic Prairie Roasted Turkey Deli Meat, you could also use chicken as well. This is made with a lean meat for a healthy meal!

Mozzarella: My favorite is Organic Valley and I like to grate it myself. Check out 5 Reasons to Grate Your Own Cheese for more info.

Tomato: Organic tomatoes are great for heart health.

Fresh Basil: I love adding fresh basil to things as it gives so much flavor. Basil also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help with digestion and gut health.

Yellow Bell Peppers: Organic bell peppers have vitamin C, potassium, and more. I used yellow here, but you can use any color you like.

Flour Tortillas: I used organic flour tortillas, but you can use corn if you're gluten free.

Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar: I made my own little dressing just with organic extra virgin olive oil and organic balsamic vinegar.
