TACO Tuesday- Spicy Tacos

Tuesday it was TACO TUESDAY!!! I love tacos...we used to eat it so much when we first got married so my husband got tired of them but as I mentioned many times, I could eat the same thing everyday if I really liked it and LOVE TACOS! So I am always looking for new and fun ways for TACO NIGHT! Here are the details: 


3 spray(s) cooking spray, divided   
2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced   
3/4 pound(s) uncooked lean ground beef (with 7% fat)   
1 and 1/2 tsp Durkee Ground Cumin Seed, or other brand   
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander   
3/4 tsp table salt, or to taste   
1 and 1/2 cup(s) canned diced tomatoes, with jalapenos or green chilies   
8 small corn tortilla(s), or small, lightly toasted just before serving if desired*   
2 cup(s) lettuce, shredded   
1/2 cup(s) low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety   1/3 cup(s) salsa   


  • Coat a large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add beef; cook until browned, breaking up meat as it cooks, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add cumin, coriander, salt and diced tomatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is almost absorbed, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Place tortillas on a flat surface. Top each with about 1/4 cup beef, 1/4 cup lettuce, 1 tablespoon cheese and 2 teaspoons salsa. Fold tortillas in half and serve. Yields 2 tacos per serving.

  • They were delicious and I had enough points to have 3!!!

    3 tacos= 10 PP

    Happy Eating!!!

    Fabulous Valentine's Day Challenge: Day 4

    Today is another day for the Fabulous Valentine's Day Challenge!! I am linking up with Neely, Amber and Casey for Day 4!! Today's topic is: 

    Valentine’s Day Challenge

    I love sharing pictures of our wedding. I loved everything about: marrying the man of my dreams, celebrating with our family and friends and having a great time! My mom (who did the majority of the planning) did a wonderful job and I always say I want to do it again! She insists I can but parents won't be footing the bill:) 

    We got married on May 22, 2010 at 5:22pm (get it..May (5th month) at 22 minutes past the hour:) at my childhood church: St. John's United Methodist church. I have attended that church since I was 8 years old and Daryl joined the church in 2009. It was a great ceremony and our minister even used my iPad for the ceremony! It was a great ceremony and just what I imagined it would be! 
    Our reception was held at a new local venue : Mansion Royal! They took care of EVERYTHING and I did not stress one time. We had a photo booth which was a hit and I am so happy we got that. Our FABULOUS Jason Page did an incredible job capturing our day!
