Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made a Breakfast Sandwich using; a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly fried an al fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage Breakfast Patty, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees, humid, and scattered showers out today. After Breakfast I had to go to the local Kroger and pick up a couple of items. Then went to the Post Office, got gas, and stopped and picked up Breakfast at McDonald’s for Mom. Later on I went to Menard’s and picked up a new shower head for Mom’s Shower. So for Dinner tonight, It’s a Taco Night! I prepared Turkey Tacos and a side of Refried Beans.

 

 

Our household love’s 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 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 and Dad. We made a big plate of it for Dad and took it it to the Center for him. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Use the Grocery Store Salad Bar……..

You need sides or toppings for a dish or fresh ingredients for a recipe but you don’t need much – Try your Grocery Salad Bar. Most have sliced Olives, Mushrooms, Bacon, Chick Peas, Beans, Chopped Lettuce, and more. Why waste money buying a full can of something that you’ll end up not using. Think Salad Bar!

To crisp cut up greens like lettuce, cilantro, or anything else that wilts, soak them in ice water for 15-20 minutes. This also works for limp asparagus and carrots.
