Soft Beef Tacos

I haven't had tacos in a long time and the supermarket had a really good deal on ground beef this week. It was super quick to make and sooooo filling. I couldn't believe one taco could be so filling. If you want to bulk it up even more, add diced tomatoes and chopped green pepper.



Soft Beef Tacos
Serves 2

1/2 small onion, finely chopped
6 1/2 oz lean ground beef (93% lean)
1 tsp taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup salsa (I prefer Chi-Chi's brand)
1 cup shredded lettuce
2 medium low-fat whole-wheat tortillas
1/3 medium avocado, diced

Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the ground beef mixture, stirring to combine. Stir salsa into ground beef mixture. Heat over low heat until heated through, about 1 minute.

Warm the tortillas according to the package directions. Spoon half of the beef mixture into each tortilla. Top with shredded lettuce and diced avocado. Serve.

(For those of you counting, each taco is 6 points. If you want to add 1/4 cup fat-free cheddar cheese, add another point.)
