Ingredients

  • 1  Tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
  • onion, finely minced
  • 1  Pound  lean ground beef
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2  Cup  Sneaky Chef Purple Purée
  • 3/4  Cups  mild salsa
  • 1/4  Cup  tomato paste
  • 12  hard taco shells
  • Toppings, such as shredded lettuce, grated low-fat Cheddar cheese, chopped fresh tomatoes, and low-fat sour cream

Directions

Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions until they are slightly translucent and then add the beef (or turkey), stirring to break it up, cooking about 5 minutes until meat is no longer red. Add the salt, a few grinds of pepper, Purple Purée, salsa, and tomato paste and mix well until heated through and the colors blend into a brown mixture, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Spoon about ¼ cup filling into each taco shell. Add toppings as desired.

Blueberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
