Turkey Tacos!

Dinner Tonight: Turkey Tacos!

We ended up with close to 2 inches of rain since last night, finally eased up around noon. Had some local flooding in low areas but nothing too serious. Dad's having therapy here at home twice a week, he doesn't like it but it helping quite a bit. After his therapy it was house cleaning, dusting and vacuum time. After that finished up Mom's laundry for her. For dinner tonight it's Taco Tuesday on a Wednesday! I prepared Turkey Tacos.

It’s Turkey Taco Night! And as always when making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O, I'm using
the Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey, I had it in the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.  Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey seasoning it with a couple of dashes of Sea Salt and added some chopped Cilantro. Cooked it until it was no longer pink, about 17 minutes, in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. With the Turkey already Taco Seasoned there’s no need for a lot of seasoning or Taco Seasoning. Love using the already seasoned Turkey!

Then for toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced
Green Olives, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom and Dad. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Greek Yogurt.
