I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! Mine was very relaxing. I spent some time exploring Charlotte, fit in a couple of runs, and tried a new coffee shop that was out of this world. I will blog all about that later! I want to share a dinner recipe I made last Sunday before I close the computer and go to bed.
I really look forward to Sunday dinners. I try to cook something delicious and semi-healthy. We decided on taco salads last Sunday because they are very easy to make, and who doesn’t love tacos? I headed to the grocery store after my workout and constructed these delicious taco salads in less than thirty minutes. I love dinners that are quick, especially when you’re hungry.
*2 lbs ground turkey *2 packages of low sodium taco seasoning *shredded iceberg lettuce
*1 tablespoon olive oil * whole wheat low carb tortillas *2 avocados
*3 roma tomatoes *salsa *shredded pepperjack cheese (or any kind)
*1 can low sodium black beans *8 ounces non-fat plain Greek yogurt
Add the olive oil and ground turkey to a pan on high heat. Cook until the ground turkey is done. Drain and add the two packets of low sodium taco seasoning.
I threw some Alexia waffle seasoned salt sweet potato fries into the oven while preparing the tacos. Sweet potatoes always make a good side. I love the Alexia brand for nights when I don’t feel like cutting up potatoes.
Place the tortillas in a oven safe bowl and cook until crisp. They cook fast, so keep an eye on them! *Each tortilla should have it’s own bowl.
Drain the can of black beans. Mix them into a bowl with chopped tomatoes and chopped avocados. (thanks Meighan for chopping these!:)
You can flavor it up by adding lime, garlic powder, sea salt, pepper, onion powder, and Italian seasoning.
Add lettuce, ground turkey, avocado, tomato, black beans, salsa, cheese and plain Greek yogurt in a tortilla bowl!
These were so good that you didn’t need any extra dressing! I want to try adding grilled corn next time.
