My boyfriend, like most guys, has a huge appetite; I have a huge "need" to be frugal. Both of us are committed to eating healthy MOST of the time (that way, we don't feel as guilty while eating our pizza and wings and downing a couple of adult beverages on the weekends haha). Anywho, I'm on this huge kick right now of using cheap but healthy "fillers" such as beans, brown rice, textured vegetable protein (TVP), and fresh veggies (sometimes all at once!). My favorite home-cooked meals are not only healthy, but provide both of us with large enough portions to feel satisfied, plus "seconds" for the boyfriend, PLUS provide me with a work lunch the following day. If I can freeze half for a future meal, even better. Next time I make these, I'll probably throw in some chopped bell pepper and shredded carrots...that'll give me a couple more tacos, and more veggies! These are very filling.
