If you have been following me for any amount of time, it’s no secret that I LOVE me some Taco Tuesday. While I love flour tortillas, corn chips, and rice sometimes I like to mix things up especially since I began eating healthier.
A few weeks ago, I was on a mission to find a unique variation for tacos (okay, I know it’s not THAT unique, but bear with me). We’ve done the cauliflower rice thing (multiple upon multiple times) and while I enjoy it, the rest of my family hasn’t quite jumped on the cauliflower rice train yet. Also, local tomatoes are starting to make an appearance at the grocery stores and farmer’s markets. I LOVE LOCAL TOMATOES. I’ve been known to eat them like an apple. So I decided to combine two of my favorite things. Enter Taco Stuffed TOMATOES.
Now I realize this is not actually unique at all. But here’s the deal: I’m not the biggest fan of stuffed peppers so I always kind of avoided the whole stuffed thing (unless you count Manicotti, then I’m game). I have to say though after trying out this recipe, I’m pretty sad that I have missed out on so much stuffed goodness. Have I mentioned this recipe has some hidden spinach in it as well? Yup, easy to trick those kiddos into eating their veggies. So don’t be me, and go make this recipe immediately.
Healthy Taco Stuffed Tomatoes
Now if you are anything like me, you avoid making things that are multiple steps and involve stuffing things. Sometimes recipes that call for stuffing things are just way to complicated for a week night dinner. But let me tell you something, this recipe is EASY. I promise you. Have I ever led you astray? The hardest part is scooping out the inside of the tomato, and it really isn’t that hard.
