In light of trying to stay healthy I have been trying to use veggie burgers in a more creative way! Trying to keep my taste buds satisfied.
Things You’ll Need
Chili Bean Veggie Burger (Only 90 Calories!)
Low Carb Tortilla
Fat Free Ranch
Step 1: Veggie Prep
Tip #1 Remove seeds from jalapeños to keep it more on a medium spicy side.
First prepare your veggies. Dice up tomatoes, carrots, cilantro, and romaine lettuce, set aside. Next slice up red onion and a jalapeño in half, place onto greased heated skillet and grill until softened.
Step 2: Sauce Prep
Tip #2 Sharpen your chef’s knife before each use.
Once grilled through, remove veggies from skillet and place into food processor. While you begin to make the sauce, place veggie burger onto already heated skillet, mince it up using a spatula, and grill for about five minutes until hot. Now back to the sauce…add in about a tablespoon of cilantro, 2 tablespoons of ranch, and a squeeze of lemon into the processor and blend until well incorporated. For added spice throw in a dash of Sriracha!
Step 3: Assemble..
Tip #3 With a good sauce taco dinners go from boring to wow!
Once veggie burger is cooked remove from skillet and set aside. Now place a tortilla on the skillet and grill until lightly brown on each side.
Lets assemble! Place tortilla onto plate, next add on minced burger, lettuce, diced tomato, carrots, and garnish with the Kickin’ Ranch Sauce.
