Smart Ground Crumbles

When I had to eliminate dairy from my diet, I also needed to eliminate beef. I started using ground turkey for things like burgers and meatballs, and then I stumbled upon these veggie crumbles. I decided to try Smart Ground and use it to make tacos, and the result was delectable! Not only did the man of the house not realize it wasn’t beef in his tortilla, but the whole meal took only minutes to prepare. Here’s what I did:

Mix the following in a bowl to create taco seasoning:

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Add Smart Ground, 1/3 cup water and seasoning  to skillet over medium heat. Heat for about 7 minutes, or until Ground is hot and water is evaporated. I used the mixture to fill warm crunchy tortilla shells, and topped it with fresh salsa and shredded lettuce. I served the tacos with a side of Mexican rice and black beans, and the whole meal took only about ten minutes to prepare! I highly recommend Smart Ground if you’re on a beef free or vegan diet, or even if you’re just trying to eat a little healthier. You can find more info about Smart Ground here.
