So this is what I made with the flatbread recipe from yesterday. I adapted the recipe from one I found in a recent issue of Taste of Home. The whole family loved these! The nice thing about the flatbread is it is thicker and more durable than a tortilla, so you can really load them with filling. The flatbread would also make a great base to build a navajo taco on and much healthier than a fried piece of dough. I also love to add beans to taco filling. It stretches the meat and also adds some fiber to your meal. I chose to add the tomatoes with the chipotle chilies because I love the smokiness of the chipotle chilies. You can also make this same meat mixture to for taco salads. Yum! I put lettuce, shredded cheese, olives, green onion, and one spoonful of each reduced fat sour cream, salsa, and guacamole. I’m getting hungry just thinking about this again.
I also did a demonstration of this recipe on Studio 5. To see the video clip, go to THIS LINK.
