Halloumi Tacos


One of the easiest way to make my kids  eat anything is to put it in a taco. There is just something magical about tacos, for adults and kids alike, that makes you feel good and happy about eating them. I think tacos are truly one of life best foods and their versatility is one of my favorite things. So here are grilled Halloumi cheese tacos. Have you ever had Halloumi? I absolutely love this cheese, it is the best cheese for grilling because it will not completely spread and melt on you and it holds it’s shape, yet it gets nice and crispy on the outside but still gooey on the inside, it’s amazing!!! Look at those nice grill marks.

I paired the Halloumi with a simple red cabbage slaw and a mango salsa, Avocado on top is optional, but is it really? Of course we are adding the avocados too! I think they are so beautiful and we eat with our eyes first. Who wouldn’t want to take a bite out of that?? On the side is my creamy tomatillo and jalapeno ranch from the previous post so go have a look at that!
