Tasty Thursday

Last night we had tacos.  It's a staple around here.  The problem with taco seasoning is that it is loaded with salt.  Then put the tortilla chips with it and you have so much sodium that you need gallons of water to counteract it.  So to solve this problem, I did away with the seasonings by just adding salsa and tomatos.  Yes, there is still salt, but it is so much less and healthier.

Tasty Taco Meat

1 lb. ground meat (we use beef or turkey)
1 1/4 cup of your favorite Salsa
14 oz. diced tomatoes

Brown the ground meat until there is no pink.  Put meat in a strainer and rinse the meat under hot water.  (I call this washing the meat.  It gets the grease out.)

Put the meat back in the skillet and add the salsa and tomatoes.  Stir and simmer until warm.

Use this as filling for tacos, burritos, taco salads, whatever your heart desires.

We usually use 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of meat for our family.
