Use a low-carb tortilla, use ground turkey, and pile on the veggies, and you’ve got an indulgence that tricks you into thinking it’s a Reward Day!! No cheating here!
1 pkg tortillas
3 pkgs ground turkey
2 cans refried beans
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped coarse
1/4 head small purple cabbage, sliced fine
1 head Romaine lettuce, sliced fine
8 grape tomatoes, diced fine
8 green onion, diced
diced avocado, sprinkled with a little lime
2 jalapeno, seeded, diced fine
3 pkgs taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
extra virgin olive oil (evoo)
Sprinkle enough evoo in heavy pot or Dutch oven, cook turkey meat on medium-high heat, and sprinkle the top with sea salt, pepper, cumin and garlic, mixing and then cooking until browned. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat refried beans and chop all your veggies. Once the meat is browned, add taco seasoning and water (see notes), and let sit a minute or two to absorb the liquid and flavor. While it is resting, heat enough evoo in a heavy skillet to cover bottom. Add a drop of water; once the water sizzles, add your tortillas (see notes) and brown on both sides. Stack your tortilla with your beans, meat, veggies and cheese.
NOTES: I use organic ingredients whenever possible, but it is not always available. For the taco seasoning, I simply made sure there was no MSG, synthetic ingredients, or preservatives. The tortillas I use are low-carb, but you can use the tortillas of your choice! This was a big batch of meat, but it made dinner for four, and lunch for The Hubster AND me for the next day!!
