This recipe is basically a bunch of 7 layer dip, wrapped up in a tortilla. Doesn’t that sound good? I loved these and they were pretty easy to make.

Mexican Steak Tacos

Tacos are probably my husband’s favorite food. We love any and all kinds of tacos. Our favorite though are the Mexican tacos you get from food trucks and taquerias.

This healthier version of a taco salad has Mexican spiced ground turkey breast, lots of veggies, black beans, and a delicious jalapeno garlic lime dressing that really adds tons of flavor.
