Healthy-fied Tacos

I am trying to make the switch to whole grain tortillas, but my family is just not quiet ready for them yet.
What you need:
  • 1lb ground meat; beef, chicken, turkey (I used beef)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T milled flaxseed
  • 1 T carrot puree
  • 2/3 c water
  • 1/4 c Mom's Taco Seasoning (homemade)
  • 1 pkg tortillas, preferable whole grain ... my family just won't eat them yet
  • Your favorite taco toppings, we like; mixture of green leaf lettuce and spinach, tomatoes, shredded cheese, black olives, avocado (I didn't have any this night), beans (I puree pinto beans with a little cumin and garlic powder), sour cream (try Daisy...only 1 ingredient or try plain or Greek yogurt) and Salsa (a great condiment for lots of things!)
Make it:
  1. Brown your meat and drain any grease thoroughly.  
  2. Place meat back into pan and add the onions and garlic.  Saute until onions are translucent. 
  3. Add water, seasoning, flaxseed and carrot puree.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens.
  4. Well, you know how to assemble a taco ... Go For It!!
