Wok's For Dinner: Tacoless Taco

This meal really is, hands down, one of our family favorites.  I call it taco"less" since it's a taco without the tortilla.  It's a great alternative to eating light without sacrificing taste or a satisfied palate.  I use ground venison in my recipe, and I go a little heavy on seasonings to get rid of the gamey taste.  You can certainly use ground beef, chicken or turkey, but I recommend going a little light on seasonings, taste test, then add more if needed.

Tacoless Tacos

1 lb ground venison or your choice of ground meat
1 med. onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2 med. carrots, shredded
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp chili powder
1/8 tsp ground pepper
shredded lettuce
Toppings of your choice:
Chopped green onion
Shredded cheese
Diced roma tomato
Sliced black olives
Dollop of sour cream and/or guacamole

Brown ground meat in a large skillet over medium-high heat with onion, bell pepper, carrots and minced garlic, stirring occasionally, until meat is no longer pink.  Stir in water and seasonings.  Bring water to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 7-10 minutes.  Serve over a bed of shredded lettuce.  Add your favorite taco toppings.
