Veggie Tacos

The Wee Man wanted Tacos for dinner, so we picked up some Mexican seasoning, salsa & taco shells.

Brown 500 grams of extra lean pork mince then add 1 cup of grated zucchini & 1 cup of four bean mix & 1 cup of creamed corn. Once softened add 1 jar of mild salsa. 

Add 2 tablespoons of Mexican seasoning & 1/2 a cup of water.

Once cooked warm the taco shells & then fill with spinach, mince mixture & top with sour cream & grated cheese. 

Quick, easy & a better option to traditional mexican tacos.

Mexican Bites

Made these 87 calorie bites with only a few ingredients and they turned out delicious and cooked in about 20 minutes.  

The recipe could easily to altered to include chicken or vegan meats & is easily made into a gluten or dairy free version.
Start by cutting out circles in your choice of wrap or pita bread– I used a can of food- and place in a cupcake tin.
In a separate bowl mix 1 egg & 2 heaped tablespoons of salsa or salsa and bean mix. I used a variety made by Edgell. 
Add to the mix 1 piece of shortcut bacon. Combine and spoon onto the pita rounds. 

Top each bite with a small slice of cheese or grate some on top.

Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 20 minutes. I made 4 bites with this recipe.
