A Couple Mexican Recipes

The weekend snuck up on me some how and I didn't have any recipes to try. What!?!?!

So here's a couple of our favorite healthified Mexican dishes.

Walking Tacos
1lb lean ground beef(chicken, turkey or venison)
packet of taco seasoning
fat free sourcream
shredded lettuce
Baked Doritos
fat free or low fat mexican blend shredded cheese

Brown the beef and add taco seasoning. To build the taco (real walking ones would be made in chip bags, but we just use plates at home) put 16 Baked Doritos on plate, ground beef, salsa, lettuce, sourcream and cheese. Build it how you like it really.

This is Ayla's favorite dinner, she requests it often.

Breakfast Burritos
Eggbeaters or 1/2 eggs and 1/2 egg whites. ( I used 8 eggs, 4 whole, 4 whites)
turkey sausage
fat free tortillas
low fat(fat free) mexican blend shredded cheese
small can of diced green chiles

Brown sausage in one pan. Whisk together the eggs and diced green chiles (I only used 1/2 can so they weren't over powering, if you like spicy throw in the whole can), scramble cook them in another pan. When eggs and sausage are cooked you can build your burrito. Great easy breakfast that can be eaten on the go.
