Or no LB for that matter… He enjoys one every morning for breakfast! (we call them wraps, so I suppose they are a cousin of the taco).
In celebration of
I am serving the following for dinner:
Taco Stuffed Peppers That’s right… I’m thinking outside of the proverbial taco box.
These babies are chock-full of tomato, beef, rice, green bell pepper, onion, and various spices. Then sprinkled with a generous amount of Monterey Jack cheese on top.
I baked them at 350° for about 30 minutes.
All of the ingredients used in the making of these stuffed peppers are without carb, with the exception of the leftover rice that was mixed in (because I happened to have some). The amount of rice that I used measured to be about a half a cup and was divided into four servings (or four bell pepper halves). If you are practicing a carb free lifestyle or happen to be living the Paleo life, this is the perfect way to participate in Taco Tuesday.
Now obviously, you can’t have Mexican cuisine in any form without some version of a Margarita. For our Taco Tuesday, LB is having an imitation Margarita in a salt rimmed Margarita glass. LB is the only one having an imitation Margarita because Kim only has one glass in her collection now. But she DOES have a wonderful man in her life that is gracious enough to do the dishes!
Confession time: I didn’t use a recipe for this taco concoction because, as I alluded to before, I had leftovers that I felt the need to use. But if you’d like a recipe, I have one pinned on my Pinterest “Let’s Eat” board that you can find here.
For future reference, these items are available for your Taco Tuesday amusement:
