Taco Night

We postponed taco night for Monday since we were baby sitting Kai yesterday. We ordered in instead. What five-year-old doesn’t like pizza?

The last month or so we have made vegetarian tacos. Although this taco filling has meat we included rice in the recipe so we wouldn’t over do it. 

In large frying pan, saute’ until onion are clear and meat is browned.
1 lb. ground turkey
1 chopped onion
1 chopped green pepper
1 carrot  

Add and saute’ until garlic is cooked Add liquid if needed so that it can stew a little, allowing the flavors to blend.
3 cloves garlic
1 T fresh cilantro
1T fresh parsley
2 t chili powder
2 t lime juice
1 t cumin
1/2 salt
dash chipotle pepper

Add 3/4 cup rice and stir well. Fill taco shells or tortillas. And what taco would be complete without avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, olives, and salsa?  

Serves 4

And this is me being a terrible influence on Owen and Kai Sunday.
