Beefy Quinoa Taco Stuffed Peppers

Beefy Quinoa Taco Stuffed Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Healthy #Dinner #Recipe

A hearty meal stuffed into a healthy pepper! Beefy taco meat, corn, queso, cilantro and quinoa stuffed into fresh bell pepper halves. Use a spicy large pepper in place of the bells if you want to kick it up a bit. I was lucky enough to inherit some of the gorgeous bell peppers from my mom […]


Mexican Zucchini Lasagna

Mexican Zucchini Lasagna ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #paleo #zucchini #mexican #lasagna #recipe

I had this brilliant idea to make a Mexican-inspired lasagna using zucchini in place of the lasagna noodles. I mixed ricotta with a little cumin, oregano, cilantro, chipotle powder and Mexican cheeses. In each layer I added taco meat, bell peppers and jalapeno, black beans, sweet corn, and in place of the tomato sauce I […]


Zucchini Taco Boats

Zucchini Taco Boats ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Mexican #food #recipe #recipe

Inspired by Homemade Interest I saw these pretty TexMex Zucchini Boats from Homemade Interest  and immediately decided that it needed to be one of the recipes I made for my healthy Mexican cooking class at work. I made mine a little differently, of course, as you know I just can’t follow a recipe! I used my […]


Copycat Qdoba Taco Meat

Copycat Qdoba Taco Meat ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #easy #Qdoba #seasoned #groundbeef #recipe

Adapted from Qdoba At Home I don’t know exactly how long it has been, but we had a little celebration at work and they served up a “taco bar” from Qdoba. We all loved the food, but there was lots of the ground meat (and other stuff) leftover after the festivities were gone. How things […]


Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps

Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #Mexican #taco #recipe

I have a cooking class to teach on Monday and I chose a Mexican theme for our class this month. We have a nutrition and an exercise program at work, so my classes are pretty much always “with a healthy spin” to fit with our corporate healthy initiative … but yeah, it’s not like this […]


Graveyard Taco Dip

Graveyard Taco Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Halloween #layer #dip #recipe

Adapted from Chickabug Blog and my dear friend Kathy’s taco dip recipe When I first saw this amazing idea turning a dip into a graveyard, my mind immediately went to my yoga friend Kathy’s wonderful taco dip. We beg her to bring it to our yoga parties because it is SO good! She says when she […]


Chipotle Fish Taco Salad

Chipotle Fish Taco Salad with Herbed Lime Cilantro Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #seafood #salad #recipe

with Herbed Lime Cilantro Yogurt dressing  (salad dressing recipe adapted from 17 Recipes) If there’s anything I love more than a taco, it’s a taco salad. Give me greens, some good things to put on them and an awesome homemade dressing and I’m a happy girl. I had some more fish strips left after making those […]


Crunchy Beef & Bean Taco Cups

Crunchy Beef & Bean Taco Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican food #recipe

I got this clever and super simple idea from Abby at Manila Spoon. I showed Abby’s photo of these little crunchy taco cups to my daughter and the two friends she had over and they absolutely loved the idea. And since I’m behind on posting  anything for Cinco de Mayo this year, I decided to make […]


Triple Green Crunchwrap Supreme

Triple Green Crunchwrap Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crunchwrap #recipe

Have you ever been to Taco Bell and had their Crunchwrap Supreme? They take a tostada shell, add some taco meat and toppings and wrap a large flour tortilla around it, and grill it. It’s really a cool idea for a portable Mexican style “sandwich” with a crunch factor, except I always wanted a little […]


Popcorn Nachos

Popcorn Nachos

I love popcorn … I love nachos. I had this really weird idea today … why couldn’t you combine the two? Who says you need chips to make nachos? Well you can. The only “catch” is you don’t want them to get too wet because popcorn gets soggy easily, so things like tomatoes and salsa […]


Taco Salad Inspirations

Taco Salad with Beef, Beans, Cheese, Bell Pepper, Onion and Vegie Corn Chips
