I haven’t done a recipe in a while, so I thought I’d share one with you today. Sunday evening is a great time for a “fake away” I’m a big fan of home cooking. I love taco fries and they are really simple to make at home. I went for the healthy version but you can easily adapt the recipe to suit your own taste.
You will need,
100g unislim gorge Us chips (per person) or make your own homemade oven chips.
1 pack of extra lean mince (typically less than 5%) I used the Aldi one.
1 red&yellow peppers chopped
1 onion chopped
1 Clove of garlic minced
2 Tbs tomatoe purée
1 stock cube (beef)& 1/2 cup of hot water
4/5 slices of sweet jalapeño peppers.
30g cheese (per person)
Extra light mayo & no added sugar ketchup & 1/2 teaspoon of mustard. Mix together to make the taco sauce.
Preheat the oven and cook your oven chips according to their instructions.
Fry off the onion, garlic & peppers in one cal spray. Add the mince once it’s browned add the jalapeños then add in the 1/2 cup of beef stock and simmer for 10-12 mins until cooked through. Add in the tomatoe purée and simmer for another 5 mins on a low heat.
Once your oven chips are ready spoon the meat sauce over, & sprinkle with cheese. Add a dollop of your taco sauce on top & voilà delicious Taco fries without the guilt.
I had this for my dinner on Friday evening. It was so tasty and filling and I didn’t have to feel guilty about it. If you are on the Unislim plan the only thing You would need to count is the 30g of cheese which is 1.5 Yums. Not bad at all for a “fake away”
Well I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday Evening. We are off to New York in the morning on our honeymoon. I doubt very much if there will be any healthy eating done, but hey that’s what holidays are all about. Il get back on the bandwagon once we return. I will keep you all posted of our antics in NYC.
Enjoy the taco fries,
Love Maria xx
