I saw endive at Trader Joe’s last week and in an effort to try a variety of different produce, I decided to buy some. I still had some enchilada sauce that I needed to use, so I decided to give endive tacos a try…why not! These were a hit with my family and I was really surprised that my girls didn’t even mention the fact that there was no cheese. Shhhh…if they don’t mention it, then I’m just moving forward!
Belgian endive…about 30 boats
1 lb ground beef
5 oz enchilada sauce
1/2 avocado, chopped into small cubes
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large roma tomato, chopped into small cubes
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
2T cilantro, plus extra for garnish
juice of 1 lime
1/4 tsp sea salt
Cook meat on medium-high heat until pink is gone. Drain excess grease. Pour the enchilada sauce in the pan and cook down to desired meat sauce thickness.
Mix salsa ingredients together.
Place a small amount of the meat mixture in an endive boat. Place an equal amount of the salsa. Garnish with cilantro if desired.
Variation: If the filling of the endive is driving you crazy, then just make a big taco salad with the ingredients and Enjoy! 🙂
