Recently I came up with a recipe that my husband calls “taco on a leaf”. It’s a quick, fun recipe and it’s easy to add or remove ingredients to your liking
1 avocado, cut in to small pieces
1 pound ground beef
packet of taco seasoning (or make your own)
1/4 cup water
green leaf lettuce
diced green onions
1/4 red onion, diced
1 tomato, diced
roasted red pepper dip (recipe here)
crushed tortilla chips
In medium sized pot, mix beef and onions. Cook on medium-high until beef is no longer pink.
Once beef is no longer pink, drain and return to pot. Add water and taco seasoning.
Mix and reduce heat to low. Allow beef to simmer for a few minutes.
Take one leaf of green leaf lettuce and place on plate. Spread red pepper dip down the center and top with beef.
Then add crushed tortilla chips, avocado, and tomatoes.
Finish with shredded cheese and green onion.
jalapenos and black olives can also be added. Serve with fruit, Mexican rice, or refried beans.
