This has really nice flavor and one of those recipes that are easily adjusted to your families taste.
I used ground turkey, homemade taco seasoning, & brown rice, but otherwise followed the recipe. Once the shrimp turns white (after about 5 minutes) add 2 tbsp of PB2 powdered peanut butter.
Depending on how much your family eats, multiply everything by 3-4 to adequately feed everyone. Add the rice and cook, covered, until done (for my brand of rice this takes around 25 minutes).
Turn down the heat and cook until the meat is done and the liquid is almost completely absorbed.
I used jalapeno for the bell pepper for more kick and also used homemade taco seasoning and yes, I used jarred Pace picante sauce for the salsa and it worked out great. So I came up with this meal- it has the flavours of Mexican food without the majority of the calories and if you have extra points, you can even add a little guacamole or sour cream on top! I halved the recipe all but the rice and this made 1.5 quarts, easily 6 servings!, I plan on freezing the leftovers for another day.
If you don’t have access to a Trader Joes, you can customize your own version with raw shrimp, broccoli, peppers, watercress, onions, and sugar snap peas. It's worth using fresh salsa, not the jarred stuff for this recipe- it adds a lovely fresh bright flavour. Using extra lean beef, this recipe has a total of 19 Weight Watchers points by British points calculations. While this recipe (as written) may be low in fat, it still has a whopping 600 calories per serving, but since the full recipe realistically would serve 8, it is sure to be closer to around 250 calories per 1-cup servings.
