Taco Night!

1 Mar

TACO NIGHT! This is a very fast and easy dinner. Just make sure that your burger/turkey is already thawed and you can have this done in 30 minutes, tops!

I used turkey burger with McCormick Chicken Taco seasoning. I always use 1 1/2 packages for extra flavor.

I start with browning the Turkey. While that is cooking I chop up the tomatoes and lettuce. We usually use flour tortilla wraps, but this time I rinsed off some romaine lettuce to substitute the the shells. (delicious!)

What other ingredient or extras do you include when you have taco night?

I made the best dinner the other night. It was light, fulfilling, healthy, and the best part, tasty!

I started with a sauce pan full of water for the Asparagus.

The secret to making amazing asparagus is lemon. Yes, I add lemon. I did not have any fresh lemons this time so I used lemon juice. (In the little squeezable lemon shaped bottle.) Squeeze just enough so the water is tart or a whole lemon sliced, squeezed, and dropped into the pan. I also added salt and pepper. Depending on how crunchy you want your asparagus will determine how long you boil it. I go for approx 10 minutes.

Next, I preheated the over to 425, seasoned 2 thin slices of pork with salt/pepper and a seasoning salt. Bake for 15 minutes.

Finally, I made an amazing salad with a cup of apple sauce. I used roman lettuce and chopped it into small pieces. I added black olives, chick peas, artichoke hearts, croutons, topped with Kraft Light Parmesan Asiago Balsamic Vinaigrette (amazing).

The end result was AMAZING! Very quick dinner, yet very healthy!
