Taco Well

Tonight, I planned on making tacos, and coincidentally so did Stephanie Barone of Mommy Doesn't Cook On Friday. Now, call me sheltered, but I had never heard of wrapping a hard taco with a soft tortilla, but I was anxious to try Stephanie's suggestion.

Many people like Stephanie "try to limit [taco nights] to once a month because it's not the healthiest meal but it really makes everyone happy." So, I thought I'd share my prudent spin on taco's. Don't give up taco night, just taco well.

1. Use organic ground beef/turkey or shredded beef/chicken.

2. Make your own seasoning. It requires little effort and allows you to skip all the preservatives and other chemicals in the pre-packaged taco kits.
For 1lb of meet use:
1 T chili pwdr
2 tsp. onion (powder or dry minced)
1 tsp cumin

1 tsp garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt

3. Use organic, whole grain corn tortillas and/or hard shells.

4. Warm organic re-fried black beans, spread on the tortilla and wrap around hard shell taco.

5. Load taco with seasoned meat, cheese, fresh spinach leaves, diced tomato and fresh cilantro.

6. Devour.

7. Repeat.

8. Poor leftover meat on pasta and sprinkle with cheese in thermos for to-go lunch or over broken tortilla chips with black beans, corn, fresh spinach leaves, and tomato for a quick taco salad.
