tacos, healthy eating, weight loss, tacoHave you ever had Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado Yogurt Dressing on your tacos or taco salads?  If you just answered no, please do yourself a favor and try it next time.  It will not disappoint!  Beef O’ Brady’s has a poblano sauce they serve with their tacos and this is similar and definitely hits the spot when I can’t be there!

 

tacos, healthy eating, weight loss, tacoI rarely buy taco seasoning packets at the store anymore.  I’ve been using my own seasonings for a long time now- it is cheaper and the ingredients are more clean.  I’ve been adding turmeric to everything lately too- it has so many benefits and no overpowering flavor when mixed with other seasonings.

Black olives and jalapeños would have also been good, but I didn’t have those ingredients on hand!   I also like to sauté chopped bell peppers and onions and add them to the ground beef or turkey.  It is a great way to get more veggies in while also adding more flavor to the tacos.
