Today’s Menu: Black Bean and Turkey TacosTurkey Tacos and Cheesecake 007

 

 

Another perfect day outside, hope our streak continues! Moving sort of slow earlier today, stayed up late watching the Cincinnati Reds and Cardinals play a 16 inning ball game last night. Managed to go to the store and picked up a few items to make a Cheesecake for dessert tonight. For dinner it’s one of my favorites, Black Bean and Turkey Tacos.

 

 

I used the leftover Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast from last night when I made a Turkey Burger. I fried it in Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes, and 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. As I added the Taco Seasoning Mix I also added 1 can of Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans, I drained and rinsed them before I added them. I love pairing the Black Beans with Ground Turkey. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through.

 

 

For my other toppings I used 1 can Green Giant Steam Crisp Super Sweet Yellow and White Whole Kernel Corn, 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, 1 small diced Tomato, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, a bag of Dole Shredded Lettuce, and all in a Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. I love these Tacos! The crunch of the shells and all the different flavors and spices make a perfect Taco. For dessert later Cheesecake. See the Cheesecake posting for the recipe for the Cheesecake and Blackberry Sauce Topping.
