Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

To start the day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 65 degrees and partly cloudy out today. I took Mom for Radiation Treatment. That was her 10th Treatment so 10 more to go! Afterward we stopped by Meijer for a few items. Amazing the high prices in our stores! Just as bad is Gas! It was $3.335 yesterday and today it’s at $3.62 a gallon. I can’t imagine trying to support a big family in this economy. It’s Taco Tuesday! Mom wanted one of her favorites for Dinner so I prepared Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added 1 can Bush’s Chili Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 3/4 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O and Old El Paso together make some fine Tacos!

 

For toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce (my favorite), Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Turkey and you have some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Meal Nights. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
