NOT-CHO dinner  hahaha now say it faster. Hahahah sorry being silly 😄 

Fast, quick, delicious and nutritious !

Serves 3 - 6


4 lbs of lean ground turkey (chicken of beef)
1 tbsp taco seasoning (homemade or store bought)
1 tbsp of Luli's Mom Green Sofrito *optional **note
12 whole wheat hard taco shells (corn hard shells or soft shells)
2 Roma tomatoes diced (or 1 large beefsteak tomato)
1 1/2 dandelion greens chopped (iceberg,romaine, or any leafy green)
1/2 large red onion chopped (or any onion)
1/2 c salsa verde
1 c chunky Luli's tomato salsa (homemade or store bought) **note


In a large non-stick skillet over med/high heat add ground turkey the sofrito and taco seasoning. Stir with wooden spoon to coat mixture evenly. Cook for about 5 - 7 minutes then add 3 cups of water. Let simmer till all water has evaporated about another 10 - 15 minutes. 

In the meantime,  in a plate set aside the chopped tomato, leafy green, and onion. In another the tomato salsa and salsa verde if using them, also set aside. 

Heat oven to 300. Place hard taco shells in a flat baking dish. Heat shells for about 2 - 3 minutes. May have to increase or decrease the time depending on your oven. So keep close eye on them you don't want to burn them. Once warmth through remove from oven and set aside.

Ok back the top of the stove... Check to see all water evaporated and meat is browning nicely and turn off heat. 
Now you are done. Plate and serve. You may add sour cream and or guacamole as toppings if desire. 


Bon Apetite!
