Nutritional values

These taco shells are healthier than standard versions, since they're made from wholemeal flour, which contains fiber and minerals. In addition, these smart tacos are not deep-fried, but baked in the oven, saving fat and calories. 

Depending on your preference, you can also season the dough for these taco shells with pepper, paprika powder, or chili flakes.
