Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

Dinner Tonight: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

For Breakfast I prepared a packet of the Pioneer Peppered White Gravy along with 2 slices of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Also fried up 2 Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and
topped it off with that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast it was house cleaning day. Dusted (my least favorite chore), vacuumed, and cleaned the stove and oven. With the inside done moved the cleaning outdoors. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned the wooden deck and driveway areas. Got the weed killer spray and the cart and sprayed around the house flower beds for weeds. Starting to get hot and muggy out. Sunny and a high in the 90's, plus more humid out. Dad was released from the hospital and resting here at home, good to have him back. For Dinner tonight  Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans.

When making Turkey Tacos I love using 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 Canola Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush's Chili Beans - Black Beans, 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 and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green
Olives, Ortega 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 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. For dessert later a bowl of Dole Sliced Peaches.
