Seed peppers, then mince peppers, onion and garlic in a food processor. Saute pepper mixture, cumin and coriander in oil over med-hi heat for 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to med, cover and cook for 10 minutes. After adding one can of beans and one cup of broth, using either an immersion blender or regular blender, blend until smooth.

I feel like tacos tonight!! Tacos tonight!

How do you go wrong with tacos? I submit you cannot! (I may be biased, I've got a very happy tummy right now.) Don't have a photo, due the massacre that occurred once they were done, but here's how it all came together:

Taco 'Meat'
1tbsp Olive oil
1 Diced sweet onion
1 Diced green pepper
1 Diced Pasilla pepper
1 Diced Anaheim pepper
1 cup of diced button mushrooms
1 Package of Yves Taco Stuffers
1/2 cup of salsa
dash of hot sauce
Plus shell and toppings

Saute veggies in olive oil until tender, then throw in the last three ingredents and saute until warm. (So fast and easy!)
Of course everybody has there favorite toppings, we like to take sour cream, pico de gallo, avocado, lettuce, cheese and attempt to stuff it into a tiny little taco shell on top of the taco 'meat'...then laugh as it explodes upon first bite!
Hope you enjoy this supper healthy and low fat version of a staple meal.

*Tip - to keep your taco mixture from drying out I leave the lid after adding final ingredients.


Catchn' up

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I'll try to make up for it this week.
To briefly re-cap the week...I've been keeping up on the Tacoma half training. I wish I could figure out how to post my training schedule...I'm basically doing two miles three days a week right now with cross training thrown in were it fits. I'm feeling good about it, but still nervous about the impending increase in weekly mileage. And now for the sad news...the Seahawks are out. They wore themselves out in the first five minutes. 20-42, it was shamefull. Thanks Pollard!! Grrr...

...mind you this is a team with no running game...(sigh)
