This is not a new recipe for MommaCooks, just a previous one with a tiny twist. Our oldest isn’t a big fan of tacos and will usually just eat the filling and not the tortilla, but he does love tortilla chips, so I decided to make nachos using the taco filling (from Jessica Seinfeld) that I normally make.
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 14-oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes, with their juice
2 T cup sweet potato, carrot, or butternut squash puree (use baby food)
2 T wheat germ
1 packet taco seasoning
Garnish: cheese, sour cream, avocado, salsaâ€¦whatever you like on your tacos
Cook meat in large nonstick skillet. Drain fat.
Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, vegetable puree, wheat germ and seasoning mix.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the meat is no longer pink and the mixture begins to thicken, 8-10 minutes.
Make nachos by putting tortilla chips on a plate and topping with meat mixture. Add your favorite toppings.
Did I change anything? I added the wheat germ and reduced the amount of puree.
