Candace’s Turkey Tacos

Last week my family enjoyed an excellent recipe from Candace’s kitchen. I had already made up some salsa and was searching for a good Mexican dish to pair with it. I remembered Turkey Tacos being mentioned in “Reshaping it All”. I had to adapt it just a bit because I had already made up the salsa, but it turned out great just the same. This is a recipe I will be adding to my “make often” list! It is healthy, delicious, and pleases the entire family. Candace, thank you for your encouragement and your delicious recipes! You are most certainly Comfy in your Kitchen!
Love to you, Janelle

Ground turkey breast, fresh salsa (I had this already made up, for Candace’s salsa see below), flour tortillas, lettuce, finely shredded cheddar cheese
(black beans-they are in the salsa)
In a large skillet, brown ground turkey.
Warm tortillas on a plate covered with a paper towel for 1 min in the microwave
Turkey Taco Night! A fun make -your- own buffet!
My entire family loved these.

    Thank you Traci! Sure I will 😉

  4. Mmm, I love taco nights 🙂 My husband makes a killer chicken taco that is really easy and healthy too, but you use your grill 🙂

    Those look sooo good and can't wait to try them. Btw, where did you get your gorgeous place mats? I have been looking forever and everywhere for some like that. Black and White with the frilly print. Thanks and God Bless you sis!

  6. I will have to make that salsa. We love chips and salsa for a snack around here but always buy pre-made salsa.

  7. Janelle Nehrenz says:

    Ingrid…once you make this salsa, you will crave it!!!! I can't get enough. It is one of my favorite recipes. It is also great on salad…it has the dressing and the veggies all in one scoop!

  8. Absolutely loved this meal! I jumped ahead in the meal plan and made this tonight…. it was fantastic! Your homemade salsa is amazing!
