Today’s Menu: Buffalo Tacos

 

 

 
Wow, back to back sunny days above freezing! Come on Spring Time. The forecast is still looking good, with a continued warm up. Went to the bank and got my car washed, a much needed wash! For dinner tonight Buffalo Tacos.

 

 

 

Buffalo Tacos 004
For the most part when making a Buffalo Meat dish, I’m using my favorite Wild Idea Buffalo. I’m using the Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round, 99% Lean. I started by frying the Ground Buffalo in Canola Oil (on medium heat) and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. I then added 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup of Water. When using Buffalo, or Bison, always remember it gets done quicker than other meats. I stirred everything until it was well mixed and then let it simmer on medium low until the water reduced and it started to thicken up a bit. Just a fantastic aroma as it was cooking!

 

 

 
For my other toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Dean’s Guacamole, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and it’s all in a Ortega Fiesta Flats. You can have so many different types of Tacos with so many different toppings, just endless options for dinner. This is the second time I tried the New Ortega Fiesta Flats. They make a nice option to the regular Taco Shell. Their 150 calories and 17 net carbs per serving, 2 Shells make a serving. They’re nice size, so you can load them up with healthy toppings. Another plus is they seem to hold their shape, even after a couple of bites.Nice add to keep in the pantry. For dessert later Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
