Lean Beef Veggie Tacos

Sunday, November 11, 2012 • Phoenixville, PA 19460

Tacos can be a healthy meal, especially when you add in lots of diced peppers, onions, & mushrooms!  Opt for Lean Beef...turkey and chicken are also great options. And use whole grain tortillas. I like to add diced cucumbers on top for an extra crunch! 



1lb lean ground beef

1 taco seasoning packet

1/2 cup water

Diced red peppers

Diced green peppers

Diced sweet onion

Diced mushrooms

Whole grain or Whole Wheat Taco Shells

Diced Cucumbers (optional---to put on top of finished taco)


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan on medium heat. (except for taco shells and cucumbers). Let simmer until meat is thoroughly cooked or longer for the meat and veggies to really soak up the flavor. 
  2. Put into taco shell.
  3. Top with diced cucumbers or some non-fat or low-fat chedder cheese.
