Tacotime!

As Andy mentioned earlier, we went out to the new Fresh and Easy today! We decided to make tacos tonight. I’m a huge fan of ground turkey tacos but we actually had ground beef today. Super lean beef though!
We bought a salsa kit at Fresh and Easy. It came with 2 tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, garlic cloves and a lime. Andy got started on making the salsa in our food processor while I worked on browning and seasoning the beef.

This cracks me up because it looks like Andy is missing his hand! LOL!

I simmered the beef with a little water and olive oil. Later I added some low sodium taco seasoning. (which still has tons of sodium. I need to find something else to season with!)

Salsa ingredients go in the food processor…

And out. It came out sort of white looking. Too much onion and not enough tomatoes. Now we know for next time.

Here is our spread; whole wheat tortillas, light sour cream, ground beef, shredded cheddar cheese, guacamole, salsa, jalapenos and a salad!
(I’ve heard that nonfat greek yogurt works well in place of sour cream. Thoughts?) And yes I love lobsters and crabs. Ha!

The cilantro-lime salad dressing really jazzed this salad up. I am never buying iceberg lettuce again.

Talk to you guys later! I have a weight loss question for you! Coming soon.

We got a Fresh & Easy right around the corner from our new home, my wife didn't like it at first but she's opened up to liking them. Especially because of the quick in and out process of going there.

If you hadn't seen, I ranted about their stupid parking lot a couple days ago on my website.

Their chicken tortilla soup is really good!

For the record, I pinched my hand in the food processor.

I have two hands.

Yummy-ness abounds.

Luckily for us, they don't have those parking spots at ours. I would have been annoyed too!

Hi - Thanks for your comment on my blog! You guys are too cute! The missing hand pic is a bit freaky deaky, but it made me laugh. And yes to Greek yogurt as sour cream. It totally works. :-)

i love making mexican food at home too- it's all the goodness w.o all the fat of the restaurant version.

for a sour cream subsitute i do the following and cant taste the difference:

line a strainer with a few sheets of paper towels, then put a few spoonfuls of yogurt into there and let it drain over a bowl. after 30 minutes or so, the water will have drained out into the bowl and you'll have a creamy thick mixture to use in place of the sour cream.
