It's that day of the week again, you know the one where every slick rick and beach bunny in SoCal hoards in to consume numerous amounts of tacos and margaritas.
I miss you for your Baja Fish Tacos, black beans and rice, and The Cadillac. Truly, a fiesta on my pallet.
Me and Fannie enjoying our Cadillacs @ Fred's Mexican Cafe, go tequila!
-Missing the Cali life! But I am gonna suck it up and make tacos at home while the wind blows and rain pours down. I found a new recipe, these lil jems are called Not So Fat Tacos. If you are interested in exploring new, healthier options for your diet maybe you should take a gander at this...
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2 - inch chunks
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/2 - inch chunks
4 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 cup bulgar
8 ounces ground sirloin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 15 ounce can low sodium crushed tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 6 inch corn tortillas
4 ounces crumbled feta
2 cups shredded romaine
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil on medium heat. Add peppers, scallion whites, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for about 7 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Stir in bulgar. Add sirloin, chili powder, and cumin and cook, stirring until beef is no longer pink, about 3 minutes.
- Mix in tomatoes and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes or until bulgar is tender.
- Using tongs, hold each tortilla over the burner for about 15 seconds or until lightly toasted. Spoon 1/2 cup filling down the center of each tortilla. Top with feta, romaine and scallion greens.
Perhaps I should have waited until after I try this recipe but I am too excited! I am sure they will be dericiousness. Now I just need to find a perfect margarita and I am set! Off to watch The Hills from last night.
Ciao for now!
