Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type B (3 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (3 beneficials)
  • Type O (4 beneficials)
  • Entree
  • 1 lb. ground buffalo meat
  • 1/3 of a red pepper sliced fajita style
  • 1 small onion sliced fajita style
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • fresh baby spinach
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • chili powder/seasoned salt
  • Ezekiel brand tortilla shells
How to make it:
  1. Saute the buffalo meat, red pepper strips, onion strips, garlic and the desired amount of chili powder and seasoned salt (if desired) in a large skillet.
  2. While this is cooking, cook the desired amount of brown minute rice.
  3. After the rice is done, I add about a cup of the rice in the meat and veggie mixture, and let it cook together for a few minutes.
  4. Take a tortilla shell, add a handful of baby spinach in the middle, then a few spoonfuls of the meat/veggie mixture, and top with a little of the shredded mozzarella.
  5. Fold as desired and eat, such an incredible taste, takes care of the Mexican cravings!
    (the seasoned salt has cornstarch in it, and it's an avoid for type O's, but I don't use much at all....your choice to add or omit)
