Taco Tuesday!

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

Serves 6

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!

A twist on your original quesadilla!

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)

Yummmmmmmm!
