Here is the last day of Stampede and I didn’t really do any stampeding. Amber was lucky enough to do the grounds with her friend Megan and also lucked out with an invite to see the fireworks later that night. I thought I would finish off the week with a Lightened Up Soft Tacos. This one is for the little cowpokes out there but big Cowboys and Cowgirls can also enjoy them. This recipe is lightened up in every way but taste. They are full of flavor!! One thing I don’t like about the packaged taco mix is the sodium. So this is a way you can control that by making your own taco seasoning and it is super easy. Enjoy these with the whole family.
1 lb. extra-lean ground beef
1 Tbsp. Chili powder
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1 cup light shredded Tex Mex cheese
6 large leaves of lettuce
1 large tomato, diced
Light sour cream
6-8 Ancient Grains, whole wheat tortillas
In a large skillet add the beef, garlic, salt, and chili powder. Cook until the beef is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. In the middle of the tortilla fill with meat, then cheese, followed by tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, and lettuce. Roll up keeping one end closed so the fillings won’t fall out. So good and a lot healthier than the original version. Happy last day of Stampede ya all!!
