  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 pound beef, ground, 90% lean
  • 4 medium tortilla, whole wheat
  • 2 medium carrot
  • 8 jumbo black olives, canned
  • 1 medium bell pepper, yellow
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup lettuce, romaine
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup salsa


  • Place chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt into a zip-lock bag; shake to combine, label it “taco seasoning,” and set aside.
  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Add beef and 2 teaspoons of seasoning mixture to the skillet. Store the remaining seasoning mixture in the zip-lock bag to use another day.
  • Stir beef to crumble, and cook until no longer pink inside: approximately 8-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat another skillet over medium. Cook each tortilla in the skillet, one at a time, about 1 minute per side. Set aside and cover with a lid from a large pot.
  • Peel carrots. Using the peeler, continue to peel (julienne) the carrots. Chop olives, dice bell pepper, coarsely chop spinach and romaine, and place all veggies, along with shredded cheese, onto a large serving platter to use for taco toppings.
  • Assemble tacos as desired.
