Howdy! How was your Monday? Mine was pretty good, I feel like I’m actually learning stuff that will help me do MY job at work!
Dinner last night was something that we have at least once per week around here… Tacos!
First look, and you probably think, those aren’t tacos! Where’s your shell? These tacos are not your normal tacos. The first time Chris told me he was making tacos, and what he was using to make them, I thought they sounded weird and not very good… Please do not let the no shell, no salsa, no sour cream thing scare you away from trying these!
No, they aren’t anything like typical tacos, but they are super simple and delicious—which is why we eat them every week! We’ve even started playing around with the meat, and they are delicious made with diced chicken, ground turkey breast, and the classic beef. Try these for yourself, and let me know what you think!
What You Need:
- 1 lb extra lean ground beef or turkey, or boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1 14oz can tomato sauce
- garlic salt
- romaine lettuce—be lazy and use the bagged pre-cut stuff!
- 1 large tomato or 2 Romas
- white onion, diced—about 2 T, depends how much you like raw onion
- Tortilla chips
- Shredded colby-jack cheese
What To Do:
Brown your meat of choice, seasoned with salt and pepper. If using turkey, add a little garlic salt.
In a separate sauce pan, heat the tomato sauce seasoned with 1-2 T garlic salt (to taste).
Chop your tomatoes and onion.
Layer it up in a big bowl—that’s it! Really!!
If you’re Boyfriend, you start with a good base of slightly crushed tortilla chips, then lettuce, meat, cheese, tomatoes, onion, and sauce.
If you’re Girlfriend, you start with a good base of lettuce, then meat, sauce, tomatoes, 2 crumbled Melba toast, and a small pinch of onions.
Either way, you’re going to scarf it up and continually say how good it is—and you may catch your boyfriend licking the bowl
Are there any dinners you eat at least once per week?
