Recipe: Homemade Healthy Beef Tacos | Date Night Kitchen Adventures

What's better than Tacos Tuesday?

Homemade healthy beef tacos on Saturday date night!

I was seriously contemplating ordering pizza last Saturday night because I was feeling lazy (#realtalk) but ended up settling with homemade tacos for the mister and I.

Because, you can never go wrong with healthy wholesome ingredients with lotsa fresh, crispy vegetables on a warm spring night!

The plus side is, it only takes you approximately an hour to put together everything!

AND, if you are lazy like yours truly and seek efficiency in everything, cook extras and you have taco salad for lunch throughout the week. #Winning

This recipe makes approximately 6 servings ( 2 servings for our dinner and I froze the remaining beef mince for taco salads!)
