What's for dinner? Veggie Tacos.

I feel like I'm often in a cooking rut and make the same 4-5 things for dinner, so I'm trying to get better about that and cook more of a variety! I really have no excuse. We are well out of the newborn stage, I'm not pregnant and sick (excuses I've made for myself in the past for not cooking very often) so it's time to get back to regular cooking! I'll be sharing some of the things we eat here if anyone else needs some new ideas! I also welcome ANY yummy meals you have to share!!

Last night I had a bunch of peppers and zucchini to use up so I made some veggie tacos in a pita with a side of quinoa, it was loved by all! Well not SO much the quinoa, my family doesnt love quinoa, but it's SO good for you I've really been pushing it, and everyone ate it, and that's victory enough sometimes!

Two large bell peppers, color of your choice
1 large zucchini
Olive oil
Garlic or garlic powder (or your favorite spices)
Pita bread or tortillas for the taco

for the dressing/sauce whatever you want to call it
sour cream
a small dash of rooster sauce
tablespoon of ranch powder

Knowing all the ingredients now it's pretty self explanatory! 

Chop up the veggies, throw it in a pan with some olive oil and whatever spices you choose to use (garlic powder and parsley for me this time) and fry till it's the texture you like. We like a little bit of crunch so it took about 15 min. on medium heat. 

While I was frying the veggies I also made a small pot of quinoa for the side. 

For the dressing just mix in a few tablespoons of sour cream and a dash of rooster sauce (didn't add too much to make it not too hot for the kiddos!) and the ranch powder and mix. Difficult right? 

Throw the pita bread in the oven (or microwave if you don't want to turn your kitchen into a sauna in the summer) for a few minutes and then it's time to load that thing up!

I put some lettuce in first to get even more veggies into our meal, then the fried veggies and last a little of the dressing. 

Super simple, healthy and delicious!

    1. it's a SUPER hot sauce, also called sriracha! Very hot so you don't need a lot!
