You’ll only find orange and green slime in my taco meat. That’s what my kiddos would say if they saw the taco meat right now. I’m being a bit sneakier than ususal for this freezer batch and adding shredded carrots (frozen from juicing) and freshly frozen pureed spinach. I’m mixing it in as I brown the meat. I brown my meat finely using this tip here. Here’s a freezer taco meat tutorial if you’ve never tried this batch cooking approach to make easy 5-minute tacos in a flash.
Here are my non-pink slime, sneaky add-in suggestions (add one or more):
- Any fresh or frozen pureed or shredded vegetables you have on hand
- Baby food purees (homemade or store-bought)
- Flax Meal
- Omega 3-Oil
- Black beans and corn (great way to stretch meat further)
- Pureed black or pinto beans
Remember you’re only adding more nutrition and they’ll never know unless they see you cooking it, so hurry, add stir, stir, stir
If your kiddos eat their vegetables well, consider yourself blessed and skip this step while you’re freezer cooking your next batch of taco meat.
Do you have any sneaky tricks for boosting nutrition?
