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.

So check the site out today. Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

DAKOTA TACOS “INDIAN TACOS”
My secret ingredient in the preparation of the fry bread, is club soda, which makes the dough and bread lighter. I also use coconut oil, which has a good nutritional profile, and is great for deep frying. Be sure to fry at a high enough heat, 375° to limit oil absorption and to give the edges a nice crispiness. The slightly spicy, seasoned meat balances nicely with the creamy, Zesty Sour Cream Dressing.

Taco Ingredients:
1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo Meat
1 – small onion, chopped
1 – tablespoon olive oil
2 – teaspoons chili powder
2 – teaspoons cumin
1½ – teaspoons salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – teaspoon oregano
1 – teaspoon smoked paprika
½ – teaspoon coriander
2 – cups lettuce leaves, or chopped lettuce
1 – cup grated cheddar cheese
Zesty Sour Cream Dressing, recipe below

Preparation:

1) Measure all spice ingredients, and set aside.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat the olive oil.

3) Add the chopped onion and crumble in the ground buffalo.

4) Sprinkle seasonings over the meat, and stir to incorporate, breaking up the meat into smaller pieces as you stir.

5) Cook until meat is browned, about 7 minutes. Cover, set aside, and re-heat when the fry bread is ready.

6) To assemble, place warm fry bread on plates, and top with the hot seasoned meat, lettuce, and cheese. Drizzle with the Zesty Sour Cream Dressing and enjoy!

Fry Bread *Recipe makes 4 fry bread servings, with 275 calories per each.

Ingredients:
2 – cups unbleached organic flour, plus a half cup more for handling and rolling out
2 – teaspoon baking soda
¼ – teaspoon salt
½ – cup 2% milk
½ cup club soda
3 – cups coconut oil

Preparation:

1) Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and sift to incorporate.

2) Add milk and soda and stir in until incorporated. The dough will be slightly sticky.

3) Flour hands and pat dough into a ball, place the dough on a floured surface and divide into 4 equal servings. Using floured hands press portions into a disk shape and roll out into about a six-inch diameter with a floured rolling pin.

4) In a 8 inch diameter saucepan, over medium high heat, heat coconut oil. Oil is at the right temperature when at 375°, or you can test by inserting a wooden spoon into the oil, the oil is ready if it bubbles up around the spoon.

5) Drop fry bread disk into oil carefully, one at a time, cooking about one minute each side or until golden. Place cooked fry breads on a paper bag or paper towels until ready to serve.

*Fry Bread is best served soon after cooking, or while still warm.

Zesty Sour Cream Dressing

Ingredients:
¾ – cup sour cream
2 – tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
2 – tablespoons canned, roasted, peeled green chilies with juice, puréed
¼ – teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional or to taste
salt to taste
Preparation: Mix all ingredients together and whisk to incorporate. Store in refrigerator until needed.

Our Top 50 Recipes of the Year
If you’re looking for new healthy recipes to add to the rotation, why not start with this collection of our most popular recipes readers love?

Ground Beef and Pasta Skillet
Sneak extra vegetables into your child’s day (and yours too!) with this easy one-skillet pasta recipe. Finely chop mushrooms to resemble the texture of ground beef and stir them into a classic meat sauce for an extra-healthy twist on a dinnertime favorite……….

Grilled Fish Tacos
Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed chile rub and grill it instead. Make sure the fillets are no more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick so they cook quickly. Sometimes flipping fish on the grill can be tricky since the fish can stick to the grill or fall apart. The solution is to invest in a grill basket that easily holds 4 to 6 fish fillets and secures the fish in the basket for easy flipping. If you don’t have a grilling basket, make sure the grill is hot and well oiled before adding the fish………….

Greek Turkey Burgers with Spinach, Feta and Tzatziki
Creamy tzatziki and crisp sliced cucumber add a refreshing twist to this easy Greek-inspired burger recipe loaded with feta, spinach and Mediterranean spices. No tzatziki? No problem! Make your own at home by combining plain Greek yogurt with a squeeze of lemon, dill and finely chopped cucumber……………..

Healthy Chorizo Sausage Recipes
Find healthy, delicious chorizo sausage recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Slow-Cooker Pork Tinga Tacos
Saucy tinga is most often made with chicken, but we opted for pork shoulder, which becomes meltingly tender in the slow cooker. Either way, it features a smoky chipotle-laced tomato sauce and a crispy chorizo topping. Serve with Greek yogurt or sour cream, if desired……..

Chorizo-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
This mouthwatering pork tenderloin is stuffed with chorizo, cheese and spinach. Once you master stuffing a pork tenderloin—you just cut the tenderloin almost in half lengthwise, pound it, fill it and tie it closed with kitchen string—you won’t want it any other way. Serve with sautéed red peppers tossed with capers, parsley and sherry vinegar and roasted potatoes. To double this recipe, use 2 skillets or brown the tenderloins one at a time………

Chickpea and Chorizo Fideos
This quick, one-pot version of fideos, a toasted pasta recipe served in Spain, gets a smoky flavor from delicious chorizo. If you can’t find Spanish chorizo, pepperoni works well in its place. Serve with a green salad drizzled with sherry vinaigrette…………….

Oven-Fried Chicken on a Stick
Here’s a fun way to serve oven-fried chicken for a picnic: put it on a stick. It’s fabulous served with this homemade Vidalia onion and honey-mustard sauce, but it’s also great with barbecue sauce or Frank’s hot sauce. This is an easy recipe to double if you’re serving a crowd….

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork–and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw……….
