If you’re looking for a little heat, these tacos are for you! It’s not obnoxiously hot….because frankly I’m kind of a wimp. But it definitely brought enough heat to make my nose run.

Street tacos are smaller than a regular taco. They often come with two shells per taco. I only used one shell so that I could save on points.

I used Mission white corn tortillas. It is 3 Smart Points for two shells.

My tacos with all of the fixings were 8 Smart Points all together. And let me tell you…they were filling!

I was curious as to why street tacos typically have two shells….so I googled it.

Tacos are originally a poor man’s food. two tortillas allow for a cheaper, yet filling meal, the extra tortilla providing energy filled carbs.”

That makes sense! But for my street tacos, 1 shell is all I needed.
