Today’s Menu: Black Bean and Turkey Tacos with Fiesta Flats Tacos

 

Black Bean Turkey Fiesta Flats 005

 
We missed the damaging part of the storm that moved through the region. Got a lot of heavy rain with some strong winds from time to time. The rain did get rid of most of our snow that was left though. I actually think it’s more windy today than overnight. Went to Kroger to pick up a few items and was heading home on I-75 and it was struggle for everyone driving as the winds were very high. For dinner tonight, one of my favorites, Taco Night! Black Bean and Jennie – O Turkey Tacos with the new Ortega Fiesta Flats.

 

 

 

Black Bean Turkey Fiesta Flats 001

As usual when it’s Turkey Tacos it’s Jennie -O Ground Turkey! Love the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey 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 had drained and rinsed them before I added them. Black Beans with Ground Turkey is a perfect pairing for Tacos, added flavor and protein. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through. The Black Bean and Gound Turkey mix is a perfect one for Tacos, they complement each other very well.

 

 

 

For my other toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Dean’s Guacamole, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and all in a Ortega Fiesta Flats. I love Taco Nights! You can have so many different types of Tacos with so many different toppings, just endless options for dinner. First time we tried the New Ortega Fiesta Flats. They make a nice option to the regular Taco Shell. Their 150 calories and 17 net carbs per serving, 2 Shells make a serving. They’re nice size, so you can load them up with healthy toppings. Another plus is they seem to hold their shapes, even after a couple of bites. I’ll keep box of these in the pantry. For dessert later a Weight Watchers Mini Ice Cream Cone.
