Delicious Taco Stuffed Tomatoes, If you’ve been following me for any length in time, you know it’s a secret that I adore the taste of Taco Tuesday. I love corn chips , flour tortillas and rice at times, I like mixing things up, especially since I started eating better .
Some time ago I set out to find a novel recipe of tacos (okay I’m aware that it’s not that unusual however, I’ll try my best). We’ve tried the cauliflower rice recipe before (multiple on multiple occasions) and although I like it however, my entire family hasn’t yet jumped onto this train. Local tomatoes are beginning to show up in the farmers’ markets. I love local tomatoes. I’ve even eaten them in the same way as an apple. Therefore, I decided to combine two of my most favorite things. Enter Taco Stuffed TOMATOES .
This isn’t atypical in any way. Here’s the problem I’m not the biggest lover of stuffed peppers, so I’ve always avoided the whole thing (unless you include Manicotti and then I’m all in). I must say that after trying the recipe above, that I’m sorry that I’ve not had the chance to taste so much delicious stuffed deliciousness. Did I mention this recipe contains spinach as well? It’s easy to fool your kids into eating their vegetables. So don’t be like me and try this recipe right now .
