It can be very difficult to not overdo it with all the beer and fried food around. I try to enjoy myself and have a little bit of everything, that way I don’t feel deprived and I can still have a good time with friends. I love tacos and to me they scream party food. I was inspired to create an appetizer that would incorporate the flavors of tacos without the guilt of eating lots of fried taco shells : )

I started by browning a pound of ground lean Sirloin.  Ground Turkey can be used but when cooking for guys that are obsessed with greasy take out I didn’t want to send their bodies into shock. When the beef is browned add a 1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder, 1 Tbsp. Cumin, 1 Tbsp. Chilli Powder and 1. tsp. Sea Salt.

Stir to combine the flavors and add a 1/2 jar (15 oz.) of medium or hot salsa. Add enough to moisten the meat, you want the mixture thick and not watery.

For the taco shells I used Tostitos Baked Scoops! I love the line of baked chips, I think they stay crisper with dip…plus I can eat more and not feel guilty! Line them on a platter and scoop a Tablespoon of meat into each shell and top with Shredded Cheddar Cheese, a dollop of Light Sour Cream and sprinkle dried Cilantro on top.
