This recipe can be applied to either Tacos or Taco Salad, it all depends on how creative you wanna get... at the end of the day though, it's fast, it's relatively healthy and it's good!
I use ground turkey meat for my tacos just to cut down on the fat... you can use ground beef or even ground chicken... it's all muy rico if you ask me!
And lastly... making tacos does not necessarily mean that you brown some meat and throw a package of sodium filled pre-made taco seasoning mix all over it... you can make a great seasoning blend/mix with the ingredients that I am SURE are already in your kitchen or use fresh ingredients and throw them in a blender... give it a try!!!
1 lb. Ground Beef (Turkey or Chicken)
1 Small Onion Finely Diced
Now there are a couple variations on this dish... you can go either way!
The first is for the seasoning...
Combine in a bowl:
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Ground Coriander
1 tsp. Tomato paste
The second seasoning mix uses fresh ingredients...
Grab the old blender and jut throw in:
1 Small Tomato
1/2 Jalapeno (seeds removed)
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Heaping Spoonful of Chili Powder
A drizzle of Olive Oil
Brown your meat in a frying pan and add your seasonings...
Shred some iceberg lettuce, dice an avocado, chop a tomato, get out your shredded cheese and some sour cream and top with a black olive.
