I teased you about it yesterday. I know it’s been occupying your thoughts. Every waking moment, you’ve been wondering, just dying to know, WHAT my crazy dinner concoction was. What titillating bit of food wizardry am I going to throw your way this time? Well, my dears, without further ado, here you go:
Soft Tacos. I KNOW! I’m awesome. Something totally new, cutting edge, trendy. But these aren’t just any soft tacos. They’re special. Special Soft Tacos. That’s what they are. Just for you. Meg’s Special Soft Tacos.
Here’s what you need:
1 lb. ground beef (or turkey if you so desire)
1 package burrito size flour tortillas
1 package pre-shredded cheese
1 package Fresh Express Salsa Ensalada Supreme
Other items you may wish to have on hand:
Here’s what to do:
Brown the meat & season according to package directions.
Warm the tortillas for 1 minute in the microwave, between wet paper towels
Mix ONLY the Lettuce and the Salad Dressing
Now, make your tacos! My prep went like this:
Tortilla with meat. Followed by cheese (so it can melt). Followed by lettuce w/ dressing. Followed by tortilla strips, salsa, taco sauce & hot sauce (or whatever combination of this you so choose.) Simply replace the meat with beans and/or rice and you’ve got a yummy, flavorful veggie soft taco/burrito type thingy. Couldn’t be any easier…and the best part?! The salad dressing isn’t THAT fattening. At least not as fattening as other salad dressings.
There you have it! Okay. So I know that now that I’ve BLOWN YOUR MINDS with my ingenious combination of soft taco/burrito/salad, you’re wondering just how I came up with this idea. It’s simple enough. The grocery store had a coupon for $4.00 off your purchase if you picked up ground beef, shredded cheese, a salad kit and a pack of tortillas. $4.00 is a nice savings right now, what with blasted grocery prices being so high, so I hopped on it. As I got the lettuce out for the soft tacos and the salad out to have with the tacos, I thought to myself “Self, why use two different lettuces? Why not just use the Salsa Ensalada Supreme Salad as the lettuce for your taco’s and kill two birds with one stone?” “Why SELF!” I exclaimed (in my head) “That’s a FABULOUS idea!” and another meal was born unto my household. Plus, I even REMEMBERED to use the coupon when I got to the grocery checkout, so double score!
I must leave you now. But don’t forget to read my post from yesterday. It’s filled with lots of stuff that’s probably only funny if you were there for it and none of you were. Well, maybe a couple of you were, but most of you weren’t. So, it might not be funny. But I do request your advice and I know how much you love giving advice.
