Although Mexican food has gotten a bad rep in terms of healthfulness, it is possible to have Mexican and still be healthful. Another bonus- it makes for an easy and affordable dinner for the family! Below is a picture of the dinner I prepared for my family the other night. All that was required:
20 oz Package ground turkey (lean ground beef would also work)
1/2 Chopped onion
1 Packet taco seasoning
1 Cup shredded light cheddar cheese
1 Cup low-fat sour cream
1 Cup salsa
1 Cup shredded lettuce
4 Whole grain tortillas or taco shells
Yield= 6 burritos
Brown the meat along with chopped onion. Add taco seasoning. Assemble the burrito or taco as desired and enjoy!
**Use this opportunity to increase your veggie intake! Include chopped bell peppers and/or carrots on the side for people to add to their dish. Another idea, use tortilla chips and make a taco salad!
