On another evening, I had ground beef to use up and made this taco salad. This salad is similar to the sweet potato "taco" but it is mounted on romaine. The ground beef is higher in fat and calories, so I cut out the carbs. Still totally delicious.
We had leftovers of the turkey taco meat, so the next night I had a turkey taco sandwich. It's really just a spicy sloppy joe. That pineapple salsa is very close to BBQ sauce. (Hmmm...spicy pineapple BBQ sauce...)
Here is Dwayne's dinner on most taco nights. I angled the camera so I could show that he put some green stuff in there.
Here is how I season the meat when I make these dishes. It is not at all hot, but is very flavorful. Please add more of everything if you wish. If I were cooking this just for me, I would likely add a chopped jalapeno and maybe throw in some kidney beans. If you take nothing else away from this little love letter to all things taco, please consider sweet potatoes in your next spicy Mexican meal. Trust me. You won't regret it.Mild & Multi-Purpose Taco Meat
