Taco Tuesday? well sort of! Tonight Mia stepped into the kitchen to prep a delicious Taco Salad! The meal is super fast & easy, a twist on your usual Taco. With basically two steps & 10 minutes, you can have yourself a yummy meal (make sure you make enough for seconds 😉 you’ll want them) trust me.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 jar of salsa
- sour cream or ranch dressing
- 2 pounds of ground turkey
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 bell pepper
- 4 taco shells (crunched into pieces)
- 2 packets of taco seasoning
- 3 heads of romaine lettuce; chopped
Start by prepping the salad; chop lettuce, cut tomatoes, peppers and taco shells and place into a large salad bowl. In a large skillet on high, heat ground turkey until brown.
After 6 minutes or when turkey is brown, drain fat. Add 1 1/4 cup of water and both packets of taco seasoning to the ground turkey and cook for 7 minutes until liquid is dissolved.
Top salad with salsa, ground turkey & ranch dressing!
Easy as 1, 2, 3…yummmmm!
This is not your average chicken & cheese quesadilla! Its time to get creative! Last night we had Spinach & Mushroom Quesadillas, and let me tell you they were just as good! This is a perfect vegetarian dish.
What you will need:
1. 1 Package of (4) Tortillas or Wraps (I used Spinach & Herb Wraps)
2. 1 Package of Portobello Mushrooms
3. 2 cups Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
4. 1 (10 ounce) bag of Spinach
5. 2 cloves of garlic
6. 2 Tablespoons of butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice the portobello mushrooms, and add the oil & garlic to a skillet and let cook for 2 mins then add the mushrooms (cook for 7 mins or until brown).
Mix in spinach & continue cooking for 5 minutes. In a separate skillet over medium heat, place tortillas in the skillet one at a time, and cook 1 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Next, place an equal amount of the mushroom& spinach on each tortilla. Top with cheese, then place another tortilla on top.
Bake for 10 minutes.
When removed from oven, let cool then cut into 4 pieces. Top with your favorite dip! (I prefer salsa)
