Today’s Menu: Black Bean and Turkey Tacos with Fiesta Flats Tacosblack-bean-turkey-fiesta-flats-005

 

 

A beautiful sunny day out for the first day of Spring! Had a cool breeze blowing all day but it still hit about 40 degrees. Nothing going on today but the NCAA March Madness! The Tournamentstarted today at 12:15 with games on till Midnight. So if you’re a College Basketball fan, which I am, It’s your time of year! For dinner tonight, one of my favorites, Taco Night! Black Bean and Jennie – O Turkey Tacos with the new Ortega Fiesta Flats.

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. As i said 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 Dip, 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. The New Ortega Fiesta Flats have quickly become one of our favorite Taco Shells. 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 hold their shapes, even after you add toppings and after a couple of bites. We keep box of these in the pantry. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.
