Shredded Beef Tacos and Lime Crema- 192 calories

Here is another lovely recipe from Beverly Jo Noble, have you checked out her amazing cookbook yet? A Lifetime of Recipes came out this year and people are talking about it! It’s just fabulous, all cooking with seasonal fruit.. Pick up a copy and see what all the fuss is about.


I use leftover meat for this dish. If there are no leftovers available (maybe a teenager in the house already ate them….) see the recipe below.

4 cups shredded beef (cooked pot roast)

½ cup hot salsa

1 cup mild salsa

1 cup red onion, chopped

2 yellow peppers

1 tomato, chopped

12 flour tortillas

Lime Crema (recipe follows)

Garnish: cilantro sprigs & lime wedges

Combine shredded beef, salsas, and red onion in large skillet. Sauté 7-10 minutes, until heated through. Grill tortillas. Slice and grill yellow peppers.

Arrange tortillas, beef mixture, lime crema, tomatoes, and peppers on serving platter. Let each person assemble their own taco.

Lime Crema

1 cup nonfat plain yogurt

¼ cup milk

¼ cup mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. minced cilantro

2 Tbsp. lime juice

½ tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix together and chill, at least 1 hour and up to overnight.

Shredded Beef

Brown meat in oil in large skillet. Add beer and water, cover tightly, and let simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour, until meat is tender and shreds easily.
