Lamb Tacos- do you like lamb?



According to USDA's Economic Research Service, Americans eat about .7 pound of lamb yearly, as opposed to 60.4 pounds of chicken and 62.4 pounds of beef. This low number is surprising, as lamb is rich in various nutrients, including the proteins, iron, vitamin B12, zinc, selenium and niacin.  It is also low in saturated fat, making it very beneficial for health.  


So why don’t Americans eat more lamb?  The number one reason is that people think that lamb is difficult to cook.  However, Nueva Cocina has developed some delicious and easy recipes that will probably change some minds.  Try these:

Lamb Tacos
1 packet of Nueva Cocina Picadillo Seasoning
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 pound ground lamb
1/4 tsp ground pepper
8 ounce tomato sauce
18 – 20 crispy taco shells
1/2 cup sour cream
1 avocado, peeled and sliced

Directions
Heat oil on medium-low heat in a skillet.  Add the lamb and break up into fine pieces. Continue stirring until meat is browned. Add the contents of the seasoning packet. Stir in tomato sauce, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes.  Add water if needed.
