SO FAST AND EASY! THESE TACOS WILL SATISFY YOUR TASTE BUDS AND KEEP YOUR CHOLESTEROL AT BAY!
1 lb 96% lean ground beef
1 (15 oz) can lentils, drained slightly
1 pkt taco seasoning
1 jar of your favorite salsa
grape tomatoes, chopped
red onion, chopped
baby peppers, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar or taco cheese
8 large Azteca soft tortilla shells (I would use whole wheat if on hand)
8 oz low fat sour cream, optional
tortilla chips, optional
In a large skillet over medium high heat brown ground beef and add lentils, taco seasoning, 1/4 c water and 1/4 cup salsa.
Chop up your lettuce, tomato, onion and peppers.
Create your taco! I like mine open like a taco salad but my husband likes to wrap his.
THESE ARE DELICIOUS AND NO ONE KNOWS THERE ARE LENTILS IN THERE. THE LENTILS HELP DECREASE TOTAL FAT AND ADD FIBER. USING 96% LEAN GROUND BEEF AND LOW FAT SOUR CREAM ALSO KEEP THE MEAL HEALTHY – THEN I DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT HAVING A FEW TORTILLA CHIPS WITH IT!
