Taco Bowl Monday


I like to try new foods all the time. On Monday i made some delicious taco bowls. The colors were beautiful, the taste was excellent and the preparation was a synch. Even Olivia loved it. There really is something to be said about feeding your kids exactly what you eat yourself. It makes it so much easier for them to actually like healthy food. I wanted to include my recipe below, so all you other Mamas out there can make it for your little ones & Hubbies. I use all Organic veggies and foods, but obviously you can use whatever you like. 



Whole Gain Tortilla bowls (i found some very yummy ones at Whole Foods) 
2 Organic Chicken Breasts
1 Organic Filet Minion (my husband loved steak so i did both) 
1 Organic Tomato
1 Organic Green Pepper
1 Organic Red Pepper
1 Sweet Onion
1 Head of Organic Lettuce
2 Cups of refried beans 
1 Package of Organic Cheese
1 Container of Organic Sour Cream
1 Container of Guacamole (you can make your own, on Monday i bought some pre made from Whole                Foods)
2 Avocados 



Pre heat your oven to 350. Once you are done preparing your veggies & cooking your meat place the tortilla bowls in the oven for 2 minutes. Chop your tomato. Dice your green/red peppers and onions. Shred your lettuce. Heat up your refried beans on the stove on medium/low. I leave it on low and stir frequently. While the beans are on the stovetop start cooking your meat. I chopped up all my meat first, then i put 2 tbs of light Olive oil in a frying pan and cooked up the meat. Depending on how you like your meat it will take anywhere from 3-5 minutes. Once the meat is done stick the Tortilla bowl in the oven for two minutes. Once the bowls are done start adding the beans, shredded lettuce, meat, vegetables and cheese. I then stick it back in the oven for about 1 minute to melt the cheese a little bit. Then add sour cream, Guacamole and Salsa. Top it off with some beautiful avocado! It was so yummy! Happy Eating!
