Simple, easy, and delicious! It was Turkey tacos w/ Refried Beans for dinner tonight. It had been a while since I had Tacos. I used Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey, 99/1 and 140 calories and 0 carbs. I wanted to use Jennie – O Extra Lean which is 20 fewer calories but they were out of stock on it. I browned the Turkey until it was no longer pink, I fried it in Canola oil. As it finished browning I added a packet of Old El Paso Original Taco Seasoning.
I prepared several items for the filling to give everyone a variety. I prepared a can of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Black Beans, a small can of Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn, sliced Black Olives, a jar of Dunbar’s Sweet Roasted Peppers, shredded Lettuce, Kraft Mexican Taco Cheese, and two types of Taco Sauce; Ortega Mild Taco Sauce and Taco Bell Bold and Creamy Chipotle Sauce. So as you can see everyone had plenty of choices for their Taco fillings. I loaded mine with a bit of everything! I used the Ortega Mild Taco sauce. I also warmed up a can of Old El Paso Reduced Sodium Refried Beans. Just a note about the Dunbar’s Sweet Roasted Peppers, this was the first time I tried them. These were fantastic! Great flavor and went great with everything. For dessert/snack later tonight a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Soft Tacos
I had no clue on what to have for dinner tonight so I went shopping at the local Walmart to see what looked good. After hitting a few aisles I came across dinner! I picked up some Old El Paso Soft Tacos, a few cans of Ortega Premium Chunk Chicken Breast with rib meat in Santa Fe style sauce with black beans & corn, Thin Cut Chicken Breasts, and Lettuce. I had Shredded Cheese Sliced Black Olives, Green Chilies, and Taco Sauce already at the house so I was set to have Chicken Tacos for dinner tonight!
I used Harvestland Thin Cut Chicken Breasts. I seasoned them with Morton’s Salt Substitute and Ground Black Pepper. I’ve been trying out The Morton’s Salt Substitute here lately. My blood pressure been running a tad high so I’ve been trying to cut Salt where I can. Anyway back to the Chicken after seasoning it I fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. Removed them from the heat and sliced them into strips. I then microwaved 1 can of Ortega Premium Chunk Chicken Breast with rib meat in Santa Fe style sauce with black beans & corn and mixed it with the sliced Chicken. A can of this contains enough Chicken by itself but I wanted to add more meat to it.
With the Chicken ready I heated 2 Old El Paso Soft Tacos, 40 seconds in the microwave and assembled my Tacos. Layered Lettuce, Chicken mixture, Kraft Mexican Cheese, and Topped with Ortega Mild Green Taco Sauce. I don’t use this sauce often enough! Just a hint of heat to it and very flavorful. It’s made with Green Tomatoes and Tomatillos. Good alternative to normal Taco Sauce. Fantastic Tacos! For me the Mild Green Taco Sauce and the Ortega Santa Fe style brings everything together and makes some delicious Tacos! I left the info on the Ortega Premium Chunk Chicken Breast with rib meat in Santa Fe style sauce with black beans & corn at the end of the post. For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread.
