It’s HOT! We’re in Northern California, rolling high temperatures, drought, fires, high temperatures.. I mentioned it’s hot right? Somedays it’s just way too hot to turn the oven on, or stand over the stove even. This recipe is one of my go to throw together dinners. It’s easy, it’s quick, you can use what ever is on hand, and the best thing? It’s healthy for you!
I don’t really put sauce on this taco, you can, salsa, avocados, ranch even one of my daughters loves ranch. Lime, lemon juice is also a go too quick flavor add on. You can saute the vegetables that you add on, but sometimes I really like the almost raw properties of it. The best flavor and benefits come from fresh, ripe uncooked vegetables, so whenever you can eat those vegetables raw, go for it! Chop toppings really small if you find yourself not into the bigger pieces, and use chicken, or turkey even thin slices of meat from the previous night if they are on hand.
