Have I told you all how much fun I’ve been having in the kitchen lately?! 🙂 What’s funny is that I am eating so much healthier than I used to AND I’m still enjoying, even more so now, everything I get to munch on. Really, healthy food does taste amazing! And here’s another recipe to prove that…
Oh and before sharing this recipe, I want to mention how much I LOVE sweet potato chips. And no, I haven’t tried making my own yet (that is coming up on my list of recipes I’m planning on trying soon). But I do love the Terra Sweet potato chips… the ingredient list on the bag isn’t scary either. Just sweet potatoes and oil.
Anyway, these babies make for a great snack if you are craving something crunchy and they are super tasty dipped in my homemade salsa and guacamole (recipes below). I am also gonna experiment with these and try to make Nachos! Yummy! And I also love bringing a bag along to the movie theater or even when I’m watching a movie at home. Yes, I have TO munch when I’m watching a movie. Isn’t that required?
1 ripe avocado
Fresh lime juice – use about 1/2 lime
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic
Smash all of the ingredients in a bowl with a fork. That’s it! Double or triple this recipe as needed.
Salsa (or use your own favorite recipe):
1 14.5 oz can tomatoes and green chilies
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes (don’t drain the juice)
1 fresh tomato
1 tablespoon jalapeno (more or less depending on how spicy you like your salsa)
A handful of fresh Cilantro
A squeeze of fresh lime juice
1/2 medium onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
A few drops of Stevia
Throw all ingredients in a blender or Vitamix until everything is well blended. Store in fridge. It’s best to make this an hour or two before you make the taco salad, as this will help enrich the flavor.
Use ground beef, turkey, or chicken…
Homemade Taco seasoning
Lettuce or Spinach… really any greens work.
Diced red onions
Any other veggies you like
Shredded cheese (if you eat dairy products)
I LOVE taco salad! You just can’t go wrong with this meal… it really hits the spot. And no, this taco salad doesn’t need to have ranch or sour cream dumped all over it. Seriously, fresh cilantro, lime juice, guac and salsa make for an amazingly flavorful taco salad! 🙂
I am now off to bake chocolate Paleo chocolate cake. Wish me luck!
