Tonight’s Dinner, Deconstructed Tacos

Tonight’s Dinner was super easy and delicious and, for the most part, healthy! I made Deconstructed Tacos. Now, I for one adore tacos and I’m usually not a fan of anything but the real deal, but these were awesome.

I started my browning a pound of ground chuck (you can use ground turkey, but my husband won’t touch the stuff) and adding a packet of low sodium taco seasoning. Once that was thoroughly combined, I added a drained can of whole kernel yellow corn, and a drained can of black beans.

I mixed it up and added 1/2 a cup of salsa to the mix. While this simmered, I cooked a pot of brown rice, about 2 cups, and added it into the ground chuck mixture

I let it sit for a few minutes while I grabbed myself a bowl, and lined it with large leaf Lettuce.

Then, I added the ground chuck mixture to my bowl, topped it with plain greek yogurt and a little mexican blend cheese. You can use sour cream if you wish.

And thats it! You can add onion or tomatoes if you wish, but not everyone in out house is a fan of them so they weren’t added here. But it was SO delicious! The baby even loved it. This will be something that is added to my go to recipes.
