A few months ago my life became insanely crazy and I was having a hard time balancing my meals at night. Well, you have to practice what you preach, right? So I nipped that unbalance in the behind and put myself on a steady flow with creating healthy 20 minute dinners every night. Every Tuesday is now ‘Taco Tuesday’. I created this dish recently and literally almost licked the bowl. Keep reading to learn how easy and effortless this bowl is to make!
Since I was born on a Mexican holiday, Cindo de Mayo, I have a deep love and appreciation for Mexican and Latin foods. I’m 50% Italian so I also have that love for Italian food but I just absolutely love the blend of beef, vegetables, avocado, cilantro and my favorite Latin fruit, plantain.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal to make for a Taco Tuesday, this is for you!
