Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

Dinner Tonight: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

We actually had some sunshine today! Lots of clouds and rain for the past few days but we finally got a bit of a break, finally. After breakfast and the morning workout I went to Kroger and then stopped by McDonald's to pick up breakfast for Mom and Dad. Later in the afternoon  I had a follow up with the doctor, he checked my finger out and removed the stitches. He said everything looked great! For dinner tonight it's Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

And when making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -
O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. When the Turkey was finishing I added a Can of Bush's Chili Beans (Black Beans) in Mild Chili Sauce. Stirred until well mixed and then added 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O, Bush's Beans, and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

For toppings I’ll be using; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced
Green Olives, Old El Paso Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, 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 Beans you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. First time I tried the Old El Paso Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, gives it nice heat (not overpowering) and flavor kick! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Greek Yogurt.
