Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Mini Street Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Poached Egg that I served on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy with a passing shower, 89 degrees and a little humid out today. Took it easy today, allergies and sinuses are bad today! My head feels like those passing thunderstorms! Did a few things around the house then rested the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight, Turkey and Black Bean Street Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

 

 

 

When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have an okay selection of it. So 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 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 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!

 

 

 

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, Shredded Lettuce, and Mission Street Taco Flour Tortillas. I usually use the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn) when making Tacos but tonight I’m using Mission – Street Tacos Flour Tortillas. First time using these and not the last! These are so good and taste so fresh. Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili

 

To start my Saturday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a Thomas Light 100% Multi Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and raining on and off all day, 61 degrees. My Sinus Headache is a bit better but still annoying. Did a couple of loads of laundry after Breakfast and went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. After Lunch I cleaned the oven, microwave, and the fridge. I’m making my 3 Bean Turkey Chili for Dinner! I had prepared the Turkey and mixed the Beans last night. So this morning I had the Crock Pot set up and ready along having the Turkey and Beans. So for Dinner its my 3 Bean Turkey Chili for Dinner tonight.

 

 

 

 

As I said I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

 

 

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. Set it and forget it! The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match.

 

 

 

 

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day! I also made some Cornbread Ears. It’s normal baked Cornbread but in a cast iron baking mold in the shape of Ears of Corn. I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

To start my day off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg White, Cheddar Cheese. Another cold day out there, 13 this morning and a high of 25 degrees. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I was sort of slow today my Sinuses are really bothering me today, very bad headaches. Lot of rest and that was about it. I have to fast tonight until I go to the Family Doctor in the morning for my Blood Sugar, Cholesterol, etc. For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

 

 

 

We love our Turkey Tacos, great Comfort food for us! When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have an okay selection of it. So 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 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 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!

 

 

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, 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 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 Mom. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
