HealthFUL Dinner Idea

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!
