Ok, guys. Regardless of your healthy lifestyle, sometimes you gotta crave fast food.
And it's no wonder. I mean, the commercials show oozing melty cheese and fake steam rising off the food in a drool-worthy fashion.
For me, Taco Bell (along with McD's) was the food of my teenage years. Big, fat stuffed burritos...that make you big and fat, unfortunately.
Well, no longer, people!
I made you a healthy swap. Well, I made it for me. But I'm sharing it with you. So, it's a win-win, really.
Here's the line up:
Healthy Grilled Stuffed Beef & Potato Burritos
makes 6 burritos
1 lb 93% lean ground sirloin, cooked with half a packet of taco seasoning
3 small-medium golden potatoes, diced and cooked until fork tender
2 Laughing Cow light Swiss cheese wedges
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
Big burrito tortillas with 90 calories a piece or less
Optional-black bean and corn mixture
Fat free sour cream
Mix all ingredients except sour cream and tortillas in a large bowl. Scoop in each of the 6 burritos about 1/2 cup of the mixture and add about a tablespoon of sour cream to each. Roll it up tight!
Then grill the burritos on both sides in a grill pan or on a panini or grill press. You can also just do them in a skillet, like a grilled cheese. Works that way too ;)
I put mine in the grill pan, then put aluminum foil on top, covered with a sheet pan topped with 2 pans, so it worked like a press.
It didn't exactly look professional, but the end result was pretty awesome.
*Don't be deterred by the yield of 6 burritos. They freeze awesomely and make a great lunch!
Bonus points if you serve your healthy burrito with steamed, fresh veggies!
For the win!
Happy, healthy Friday, everyone!!!
