Healthy Eating for A Snatched Waist
Now you and I both know that abs are made in the kitchen...but the key is knowing which quick, flavorful meals to cook when you are short on time.
This recipe is one of my faves from https://anothertablespoon.com/taco-salad/
I use ground turkey and if you don't want to make your own dressing...adding fresh pico de gallo or chunky salsa adds a unique and delectable twist!
Serves: 4 servings Prep Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 15 minutes
1 pound lean ground beef
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ cup water
15 ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup cherry tomatoes
½ cup green onion, chopped
4 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lime juice
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
INSTRUCTIONS Place the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, breaking it up with a fork as it cooks so it is smooth. Drain off any fat. In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Add to the cooked ground beef with ½ water. Mix well. Simmer on low for 10 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Peel the avocado and cut it into cubes. Place in a food processor with Greek yogurt, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. If the mixture is too thick to pour, add water a tablespoon at a time, processing after each addition until it is at the consistency you want.
TO SERVE: Mix together the black beans, cherry tomatoes, green onion, romaine lettuce, and seasoned ground beef. Divide between four large plates. Sprinkle each plate with shredded cheese and drizzle dressing over the top. Garnish with additional avocado cubes if desired.
