Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos



Turkey Tacos JO Season Turkey 005
Another picture perfect day out again, 75 degrees and sunny! Went fishing at a local County Park Lake for most of the morning and afternoon. Caught a few Crappie and Blue Gill along with a 2 lb. Bass. Didn’t keep any, returned them to the lake. Had the cart out for a while also, just too nice to stay in. For dinner tonight its Turkey Tacos.



As I had said in an earlier post I’ll be using my free samples from Jennie – O. I received a 1 lb. package of Jennie – O Lean Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey, a package of Wholly Guacamole, 1 – 7 oz. can of HERDEZ® Salsas. I tasted the Herdez Salsas and just wasn’t a big fan of it so I won’t be using that. First time I’ve tried any of these, so thanks again to Jennie – O for the free samples!



I’ll be using the Jennie – O Lean Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey. I Love the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb and this one is no exception. I started by frying the Ground Turkey in Canola Oil and seasoned it with just a bit of Morton’s Salt Substitute. I’ve been making Tacos for a long time, so it feels like I’m forgetting a step by not adding Taco Seasoning to the Turkey as it’s cooking. But it comes Seasoned, and judging by the aroma as it was cooking it was going to be delicious. And it was! I’ll have to the Jennie – O Lean Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey around when making Tacos! 5 Stars for the Jennie – O Lean Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey.





For my other toppings I’ll be using; Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Wholly Guacamole, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, and Shredded Lettuce. All served in a Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shell. Did I say I love Tacos, I do! As for the Wholly Guacamole, they named it right! Wholly Guacamole is exactly that. Creamy, Chunks of Avocados, and full of Creamy Flavor. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.
