Easy Soft Tacos

We do not eat out much. Partly, because we are so limited by the few good restaurants in the area. Partly, because Larry's diet must be limited to how much salt he ingests. And partly because I am extremely cheap, and hate paying for something I can make just as well and for a great deal less than what the price on the menu happens to be. However, there are days when I want something good, and am not in the mood to spend a lot of time making it. Those are Soft Taco Days!

I prefer chicken tacos, Larry prefers hamburger or steak. No matter...the both come together quickly and easily, and have lots of flavor.

I sauté half a thinly sliced onion and half a thinly sliced bell pepper in a little butter. Then I add the meat of the day's preference. I season this with a sprinkle of Lemon Pepper and about a quarter of a package of taco seasoning (have you ever looked at the amount of sodium in that stuff?) I add some water and let everything cook a bit. While it is simmering, I chop up a tomato and shred some cheese. Once everything is ready, I heat a couple of flour tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds. I put a quarter of the cooked mixture in each tortilla, sprinkle cheese and tomatoes on top, and wrap up each soft taco. We like to pour a little Taco Bell Medium Sauce on them. Delish! And ready in 30 minutes or less.
