Guilt-Free Tacos

11:01 AM

There are two reasons why you’ll love these tacos.  They’re tasty and healthy too!  Load up on the guacamole and ease up on the sour cream.  You’ll become a fan no doubt.  My husband highly complimented them and rated them above our local Mexican spot.  Arriba! If you aren’t convinced, you should try them.  These are super-easy and who doesn’t love Taco Night?  I substituted turkey for ground beef, guacamole for the sour cream and used part-skim cheese.  You could even leave out the tortillas and replace them with a big bed of romaine if you choose. 
What You Will Need:

1 lb ground turkey
3 T taco seasoning (recipe below)
Soft tortillas
1 avocado, diced
1 tomato, quartered
Part-skim Mexican blend shredded cheese
What You Already Have:
¾ C water
1 large sauce pan/skillet
Aluminum foil
Small bowl
1)      Prepare Taco Seasoning.
2)      In small bowl, mash avocado with 1 T salsa.  Set aside.
3)      Wrap tortillas (about 6) in aluminum foil.  Heat in oven at 350˚ for 10 mins.
4)      Brown turkey in skillet over medium-high heat.

5)      Add taco seasoning and water.  Heat over low-medium heat for 10 minutes.
6)      Serve with tortillas, guacamole, tomatoes and cheese.

Taco seasoning
2 T all purpose flour
1 tsp hot chili powder
1 tsp mild chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sugar
1 chicken bouillon cube, crushed
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
Add all ingredients in small tupperware.  Shake. Store in spice cabinet.
