This recipe serves 15-20. Everyone seems to have their favorite recipe for this family pleaser. This is a combination of what our kids have found is easiest and healthiest. Maybe you’ll find a little different twist! There are five parts: the meat, the salsa, the rice, the sauce, and the garnishes. Combine them all together into tor tillas or just over beds of lettuce. You can also add beans, grilled vegetables, guacamole-whatever your family loves! You may want to double the salsa recipe depending on your crowd’s love of salsa.
The sauce is a simpler and lower-fat recipe from Saydi than the ones we have used in the past with mayo and sour cream. It is also a great low-calorie option for salads and sandwiches. According to Shawni, “It is so good it could make a piece of card board taste delicious.”
