I'm A Sucker for Mexican

I thought I'd post what I made for dinner tonight...don't know if anyone checks this blog anymore, but I'll give it a try. So I found this Green Chile Tabasco Sauce and it's amazing! Not too hot (not nearly as hot as regular Tabasco) and so I wanted to make Mexican food so I'd have an excuse to use it! I made some tasty "fresh" tacos. I didn't use an exact recipe - I'm more of a "dump and taste" kind of girl.

Taco base: 1 lb. ground turkey, 1 onion, chopped, 1 cup of brown rice, and one can of chili beans. I cooked the turkey and onion together and then added the rest. I added chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, a little oregano, and cumin. I like adding rice and beans to my meat so that it goes further and it sticks to your ribs a little more.

Toppings: queso fresco (white Mexican crumbly cheese - you can buy it at walmart), cilantro, tomatoes, avocados, lowfat sour cream, spinach (instead of lettuce - it was all I had), salsa, and my favorite - green pepper tabasco.

I put all of this in some pan fried (without any oil) corn tortillas. Oh my gosh was it tasty!!! Very fresh tasting and I love the queso fresco because it gives it a different flavor than normal. Try it! It's great!

Ok that sounds sooo good. Although I don't know if I'll try it anytime soon. I have two very picky eaters at my house (Greg and Eva) So it's hard to try new things. On second thought maybe I will make it and tell them if they don't like it they can have cereal. :)
