Tacos (Taco Salad)

Serves the whole family plus HCG dieter
You can make 2 tacos in lettuce leaves or cut it all up as a salad
The meal for the HCG Dieter is 200 Calories

32 oz very lean ground beef (170 cals per serving)
1 Tomato Diced
1/2 a white onion Chopped
Chili Powder
Cumin
Minced Onion
Garlic Powder
Salt
Pepper
2 c shredded lettuce 2-4 lettuce leaves
Juice of 1 lemon(optional)


For the HCG Dieter
take 1/4 cup diced tomato add to one small container add 1 1/2 to 2 T onion to tomato add a little lemon juice(optional)

For the Family
Combine all the rest of the tomato and onion in a separate container add some chopped or minced peppers if you like. Chill these two containers of pico till dinner is ready to serve.

Season beef while it is cooking and after draining, as per your liking

Boil meat till cooked through and drain off excess juices (if you let all the water cook out, you will find there are no juices in very lean beef)
Season beef and add about 1/2 to a cup of water stir together to blend spices bring to a simmer and keep simmering while you finish the rest of the meal for the family. While the rest of the meal is being prepared allow the water to simmer down in the meat mix.

My family likes refried beans and they had the meat on hard and soft taco shells. Get all that ready for them, plus whatever toppings your family likes, cheese, lettuce pico, they can make their own!

For the HCG Dieter

Weigh out 3 to 3.5 oz of meat mixture
If you wanna pick it up like a taco I recommend romain, I tried iceburg it didn't work so I turned mine into a salad.

Place leaves on plate put half the meat in 1 leaf half in the other, top each with about 1/2 c shredded lettuce and 1/2 the HCG pico

Like I said I had to just cut mine all up in a blowl cuz the iceburg fell apart but it was really good!

This is the 1st time I am trying to mix veggies at a meal too. If it stalls my weight loss I will not do it again!
