Remember that boat load of ground skinless turkey breast I scored at a local turkey farm (Bowman & Landes). Once I got it home, I realized that I had to find some recipes to use all 8 pounds of it that my 3 males would eat! I wanted to find recipes that were actually meant for ground turkey breast, since I got the leanest type and I didn't want too dry of results - you know what I mean? I threw it all in the freezer until I found some recipes I wanted to try. This one we had tonight and let me just tell you that it was soooo good. So good, that Evan ate his first taco. He refuses to eat tacos and I make them often. He usually takes some of the filling out and eats a little bit of it. But every time he asks "what's for dinner?" and I say "tacos", he moans and groans and says, "but I don't lllliiiiikkkkkeeee tacos."
And this evening was no different. He wasn't very happy about taco night.
But he was very pleasantly surprised and I was too. He ate all of his dinner! WOOT!
What's the recipe you ask? Tonight's recipe is from Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes: Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps. Not that I was necessarily looking for "diet" recipe but I do subscribe to her website because she has some overall GREAT recipes - especially desserts. I don't feel as guilty indulging in dessert, right? And this recipe seemed pretty simple and I like SIMPLE. Believe me, if there are too many steps or too many ingredients, I will not even attempt it, EVER.
Instead of making them lettuce wraps, I used Whole Wheat tortillas and made soft tacos. And I even noticed that after I started adding some of the seasonings, that the original recipe called for 1.3 pounds of turkey and I was only using a pound. But the flavor was excellent and not too spicy for the kiddos!!
I added a side of homemade guacamole (you know since I am a little obsessed lately!), Trader Joe's Soy and Flaxseed Tortilla Chips and some fresh veggies and dip. Yum to the Yummy!!
