it's a fiesta.

it's no secret that i love mexican food (2nd to italian, naturally). give me chips and salsa, some guacamole, and black beans, and i'm one happy girl.

unfortunately, mexican food is not good for my hips. so i can't really have it every day like i want to. so when i want to satisfy my cravings i whip together my own form of a taco salad. 



healthy taco salad

1 lb. lean ground turkey
chili pepper
cumin
garlic
salt & pepper
cayenne 
1 avocado
1/2 tomato
shredded lettuce
1/2 can of black beans
salsa (as desired)
12 baked tortilla chips

1. combine chili pepper, cumin, garlic, salt & pepper and a tiny bit of cayenne with your ground turkey on a skillet and cook (this will give it the taco seasoning flavor- we don't measure)
2. place your shredded lettuce, cooked ground turkey, diced tomatoes, scoop of black beans and salsa on plate.
3. add your avocado and tortilla chips to side
4. FEAST!




and then there are those days where i don't care about my hips. and i just want an old fashion quesadilla loaded with cheese, guacamole and tomatoes. with a side of salsa and bud light lime, of course. at least i used a whole wheat tortilla???







what's your favorite kind of food?

i love Mexican food too, but mostly for the cheese. so that's pretty much as unhealthy as you can get. especially with the island beer that's necessary with any Mexican food.

Mexican is probably my all-time favorite food (with a margarita, of course)!
