Taco Party

Tonight’s dinner was one of my fave meals since I was a kid: TACOS!

I love them, and never get sick of their beefy goodness. My parents were always all about the hard shells when I was growing up, but I am more of a soft shell kinda gal these days. I find them easier to eat, and easier to stuff more toppings into, which I am obviously a big fan of. I always go for the whole wheat tortillas for my tacos.

Lately I have been trying out slow-cooker tacos, and just throwing extra lean ground beef or turkey with a little bit of water into my crock pot, stirred up with reduced sodium seasoning mix.

Taco Mix

This is so easy and works quite well. It gives the ground beef a bit of a different texture than regular frying pan cooking, but the taste is pretty much the same. If you’re looking for a speedy meal, I would definitely recommend! Tonight though, I did the usual taco thang, browning my lean beef with onions in the frying pan, draining the grease, and then adding in the low sodium mix with some water.

I topped my tacos with lettuce, tomato, light shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, and plain Greek yogurt (to sub in for sour cream, since my sour cream was moldy! Yuck.)

YeeeeUM!

Ohh how I loooove tacos.
