We are at it again. Carrian, Kristy and I are bringing you another blog party with some of our favorite bloggers. This month, we are teaming up with Alexia and talking all about healthy eating choices, specifically using the Alexia Smart Classics products.

I’ll be the first to admit – I’m not always the best at the healthy eating thing. I try to keep things balanced and I try to practice everything in moderation, but I love my burgers, cheesy dishes and desserts. But, I know that healthy eating habits are important – especially to instill in my children.

So when sat down to think about what I wanted to make with Alexia’s new line of oven baked fries and potatoes, the first thought that came to my mind was fish and chips. Well, if you’ve ever had fish and chips (and who hasn’t…), you know it’s not the healthiest choice out there. But what if I could transform it and turn it into something healthy??

The wheels in my mind were turning, and with the help of a beautiful taco that popped into my mind from Tieghan at Half Baked Harvest, I thought to myself – what if I turned fish and chips into a taco??

Blackened Tilapia and Alexia Smart Classics Fries

These tacos are ridiculously simple. By the time you have the fries baked, you could have everything else ready. So stick your fries in the oven, pat a simple spice mixture all over your fish, and then cook it up. It literally takes 6 minutes to cook. I charred my tortillas on our gas stove, but if you don’t have gas, or if you don’t want to go to the trouble, just warm up the tortillas a bit before loading them up with fries, fish, shredded cabbage and a delicious chipotle-lime dressing. These may end up being your new favorite taco recipe!

And let’s talk fries for a second. My kids love french fries. My husband loves french fries. I love french fries. And now there is a healthier alternative so that you won’t feel guilty serving fries with those burgers!! Alexia has a new line of baked potato products, including crinkle cut fries, straight cut fries and tri-cut potatoes. They are 98% fat free and only 100 calories per serving. That’s a french fry that will fit in with your new year healthy eating resolutions!!
