Today’s Menu: Turkey Whole Wheat Taco Boats

 

 

 

turkey-whole-wheat-taco-boats-016
For Breakfast this morning I heated up a couple of Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Links, Poached an Egg, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold and windy day out there today. About 26 this morning and a high of 33 degrees. Had some Snow Flurries on and off also. Good day to stay in and get caught up on a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight its Turkey Whole Wheat Taco Boats.

 

 

 

It had been a while since I had the Old El Paso Taco Boats, and the first time I’ve had the Whole Wheat Boats. Love these things but I just don’t have them that often. They are nice size and are perfect for stuffing them with ingredients. The Whole Wheat version is 130 calories and 19 net carbs per serving, 2 Boats per serving. And 2 of them is plenty for your meal!

 
To make these I’ll need; For the Taco – 1 package Old El Paso Whole Wheat Taco Boats, 1 packturkey-whole-wheat-taco-boats-001age Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix – 25% Less Sodium, 1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 lb Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, Ground Roasted Cumin and Dried Cilantro – to taste, 2/3 cup Water. For the Toppings – 1 cup canned Old El Paso™ refried beans – heated, 1 cup Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, 1 cup shredded Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Reduced Fat Cheese, 1 small can Lindsay Sliced Black Olives, and 1 cup Shredded Lettuce. With these ingredients you know this is going to be delicious! The Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce that I use has to be the best Taco Sauce I’ve ever had! Love this stuff. It has a fantastic taste to it with just the right amount of heat.

 

 

turkey-whole-wheat-taco-boats-003
To start I prepared the Taco Boats. I preheated the oven on 325 degrees. Next I wrapped 2 of the Tortillas in foil and placed them on a small cookie sheet. Baked them for 7 minutes, until warmed through. Removed them from the oven, left the foil on them to keep them warm.

 

 

 

 

 

turkey-whole-wheat-taco-boats-004
As the Tortillas were heating up in the oven I prepared the I’m using Jennie -O extra Lean 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 Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added 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 one fine Taco!

 

 

turkey-whole-wheat-taco-boats-008
And as the Turkey was cooking and the Taco Boats baking, I heated up the can of Refried Beans. I used a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil. I always add the Olive Oil to the Refried Beans,it gives a creamier texture and prevents it from sticking in the sauce pan. Always be careful of over heating these besides extra cleaning of your pan it also affects the texture of the Beans. Took the pan off the burner when heated and set aside until needed.

 

 
With everything heated I assembled my Taco Boat. Unwrapped the heated Taco Boats, I first added some Lettuce to turkey-whole-wheat-taco-boats-015the bottom of the Boat. The Lettuce down first helps to keep too much moisture from softening up the bottom of the Taco Boats. Next I added a layer of Turkey Taco Meat, then I sprinkled some of the sliced Black Olives, next a thin coat of the Refried Beans, more Lettuce, the Shredded Cheese, and finally the Chipotle Taco Sauce. And what a meal, Taco Night just got better! The Taco Boats held together great and the ingredients all worked together to make one delicious dish. Below I left a list of all the ingredients. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos 012
For Breakfast this morning I got the Egg Poacher out and made a Poached Egg. I served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s another beautiful Fall Day out there, Sunny and 81 degrees. Finally got all the yard work done yesterday so today we gathered all the tables and chairs off the deck and driveway and stored them all in the shed. Our Fall Outside Cleaning is done! Took the cart out for a spin and picked up the mail. Tuckered out, rested up before Dinner. And for Dinner tonight I prepared Popcorn Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos 002
I wanted something light and delicious so what better than some Soft Tacos. To make these I’ll need the following; Old El Paso Flour Tortillas, 1 Rotisserie Chicken (Pulled Chicken), various Spices (to season the Chicken), 1 can Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans in Mild Chili Sauce), 1 can Green Giant Steam Crisp Niblets (Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, sliced Black Olives, chopped Lettuce, Daisy Light Sour Cream, and Old El Paso Taco Sauce (Smoky Chipotle).

Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos 003
I had purchased the Rotisserie Whole Chicken from Kroger yesterday afternoon. After getting it home I pulled all the meat and stored it in a plastic container in the fridge until today when it was time to make the Tacos. I put the Chicken in a skillet and reheated it on medium heat. As the Chicken was heating I seasoned it with Ground Cumin, Dried Cilantro, Chili Seasoning, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos 004
As the Chicken was heating I got my other ingredients ready. I opened up a can of Early California Whole Large Black Olives (Reduced Salt) and sliced them up. Then I got 2 small sauce pans; 1 for the Chili Beans and 1 for the Corn. Heated both until heated through.

 

 

 

 

Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos 006
With all the ingredients heated and ready I got the Soft Tortillas ready. I wrapped the Tortillas in paper towels and microwaved them for 40 seconds. Now to make the Soft Tacos. I first layered in the Chicken, followed by the Taco Sauce, Chili Beans, Corn Kernels, Taco Sauce, Lettuce, and topped with a dab of Light Sour Cream. Loaded and ready to eat! Love these Soft Tacos.

Today’s Menu: Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos

 

 

slow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-012
For Breakfast this morning I heated up the remainder of the Potato and Ham Skillet along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i went to the local Kroger here up the road. Wanted to go early before the rain returned. I didn’t need much but as always I picked up a few extra items. Back home finished up some laundry for Mom. Then later I took everything out of the fridge and gave it a good cleaning. My how time flies when you’re having fun! For Dinner tonight a new Chicken Dish. I prepared Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos.

 
The minute I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it! I seen it on Facebook and after checking on the net I found slow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-001various sites that had it, all basically the same. I’m using the one from the with salt and wit website (http://withsaltandwit.com/). A very good website with a load of great recipes, check it out! To make the dish I’ll need the following; For the Chicken: – 2 pounds skinless and boneless chicken breasts, ⅓ cup honey. For the Honey Chipotle Marinade: – 1½ teaspoons chili powder, 2 teaspoons chipotle in adobo sauce (or ground chipotle powder if gluten-free), 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1½ teaspoons paprika, 1½ teaspoon garlic salt, 1 teaspoon onion powder, heaping ½ teaspoon ground coriander, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Just by the list of seasonings, you can tell that the Chicken will be packed with flavor!

 
I had the Chicken Breasts in the freezer so I sat them in the fridge and let them thaw overnight. To prepare the dish; slow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-003Got the Slow Cooker out and lined it with a Slow Cooker Liner, then sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the chicken in the bottom of the Slow Cooker. Then mixed together the Chicken Rub Ingredients. Sprinkled the Rub evenly over the Chicken. Next take the Honey and pour over top the Chicken. Cover and cook on high for 3 – 3½ hours or low for 5-6 hours or until meat is cooked through and easily falls apart. I cooked mine on high for 4 hours. Once the Chicken was cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and shred it with two forks. Then return the shredded chicken back to the slow cooker to absorb the cooking liquid. Taste and seasoned it with salt and pepper.

 
To serve them; I used Old El Paso Flour Tortillas. I wrapped the Tortillas in a paper towel and heated them up in theslow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-005 microwave, 30 seconds. In the center of each Tortilla, added the Chicken mixture and topped with the other toppings. Toppings I used; Red Cabbage, Kraft 2% Shredded Colby/Jack Cheese, sliced Black Olives, and a light touch of Ortega Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce. And these Soft Tacos are ready to serve! One huge problem I came across with this recipe, when you shred the Chicken, trying not to eat it as you shred it! The Chicken is incredible, just bursting with flavor! You have all the Spices, with heat from the Chipotle, and then the Honey giving it a sweet taste. Truly a “Keeper Recipe”. So if you love Chicken and Soft Tacos, you have to try this one! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. The original recipe and web link is below.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

Turkey Tacos 008
For Breakfast this morning it was a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. After that I ran up to the local Kroger to pick up some Lettuce for tonight’s dinner and stopped by the bank before heading back home. Beautiful day outside today, mostly sunny and near 70 degrees! Had everything done in and around the house so I got the cart out for a while this afternoon. Then for dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Tacos with a side of Refried Beans.

 

 

black-bean-and-turkey-tacos-0011
Been way too long since I’ve had 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.

As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can 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.

Soft Chicken Tacos

Today’s Menu: Soft Chicken Tacos

 

Soft Chicken Tacos 008
For breakfast I made a Scrambled Egg, Shredded Cheddar, Turkey Breakfast Sausage (Crumbled), Pita Bread. I used 1 medium size Egg (Scrambled), Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage, and Joseph’s Flax Seed Whole Wheat Pita Breads. I was buying the Joseph’s Pita Bread at Walmart and they said that Joseph’s no longer made that type of pita Bread anymore. Which is usually the Walmart Code for we aren’t carrying no longer. So I got online and as I suspected they do still make it, so now I’ll order it online. At 50 calories and only 4 net carbs it’s a great alternative to Bread.

 

 
Another cold day out, about 17 degrees this morning. Sunny and cold during the afternoon. Mom went to lunch with Seniors from Church this afternoon. So glad to see her get out for a while and enjoy herself. Taking care of Dad is really wearing her down. So while she was gone I cleaned and straightened the house up and did a load of laundry for her. For dinner tonight I had some Soft Chicken Tacos.

 

 

 

Soft Chicken Tacos 002

To make these I’ll need 1 teaspoon McCormick Chili Powder, 1/2 teaspoon (each) McCormick Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Roasted Ground Cumin, 1 pound Skinless, Boneless Rotisserie Chicken (pulled), Pam Cooking Spray, (6-inch) Old El Paso Flour Tortillas, Sliced Green and Black Olives, 1/4 cup (1 ounce) Sargento Shredded Reduced Fat Colby – Jack Cheese, Daisy Low-Fat Sour Cream (optional), and Wholly Guacamole (optional).

 

 

 

 

I purchased a Simple Truth Rotisserie Whole Roaster from the Kroger Deli earlier today. Love these Simple Truth Roasters, delicious and twice the size than most Deli Rotisserie Whole Roasters. The first thing I did was pull all the Chicken Meat; removing the skin and any bones. Put the Chicken in a bowl and set aside.

 

 

 

Soft Chicken Tacos 003
Then I prepared the skillet; Sprayed skillet with Pam Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Heat on medium heat. Combined first 4 Ingredients in a small bowl; rubbed the spice mixture over Pulled Chicken. Placed the Chicken In the preheated skillet; cook about 7 minutes stirring frequently until heated through.

 

 

 

Soft Chicken Tacos 005
Next heated the Tortillas according to package directions. Divided the Chicken evenly among Tortillas; topped each Tortilla with Sliced Olives and Cheese. Serve with or top with Sour Cream and Guacamole, if desired. One delicious easy to prepare meal! The Old El Paso Tortillas are 150 calories and 23 net carbs per serving (2 Tortillas per serving). Just love Tacos, so versatile and so many topping combinations. For dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos

 

Turkey and Black Bean Tacos 003
We actually had some sunshine today! Lots of clouds and rain for the past few days but we finally got a bit of a break, finally. After breakfast and the morning workout I went to Kroger and then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up breakfast for Mom and Dad. Later in the afternoon I had a follow up with the doctor, he checked my finger out and removed the stitches. He said everything looked great! For dinner tonight it’s Turkey and Black Bean Tacos.

 

 

Turkey and Black Bean Tacos 001
And 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. When the Turkey was finishing I added a Can of Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans) in Mild Chili Sauce. Stirred until well mixed and then added 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, Bush’s Beans, and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos!

 

Turkey Tacos 013
We have a beautiful Summers Day out there today! Sunny, in the low 80’s, and no humidity. After Breakfast and my morning workout I got some things done in the house and it was outside for the better part of the day! Got the cart out, it’s a 4 wheel mobility cart that I can go around the outside of house and yard. After a little yard cleaning I rode down to the community lake and around the neighborhood. So for dinner tonight it’s Turkey Tacos, and a story behind this!

 

 

Turkey Tacos 001

I had already planned on having Turkey Tacos and BAM, a Fedex truck pulls up with a delivery. Jennie -O must have read my mind, they sent me a 1 lb. package of Jennie O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey and a 1 lb. package of Jennie – O Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey, which is great to make your own Spaghetti Meat Sauce with! I belong to the Jennie – O Switch Club, a club for bloggers, and from time to time Jennie -O sends me various Jennie O Turkey products, coupons, and recipes. So a big thank you to Jennie – O!

 

 
I wanted to keep it light, healthy, and delicious so it’s Turkey Tacos. And as always when making Turkey Tacos I Turkey Tacos 004always use Jennie -O Ground Turkey Breast but since Jennie – O sent me the Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey I’ll be using it instead. ! 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, about 17 minutes, in Canola Oil and seasoning it with just adding some light Sea Salt and Cilantro Flakes. With the Turkey already Taco Seasoned there’s no need for a lot of seasoning or Taco Seasoning. Love using the already seasoned Turkey!

 

 

 

Then for toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Old El Turkey Tacos 002Paso Taco Sauce, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Greek Yogurt.
