Disclosure: I received the Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey from Jennie-O, however, the opinions are 100% my own.
Tacos on Tuesday are hubby and my mini men’s favorite mid-week meal and it is made even more special with Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey. When you use Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey there is no need to add a separate package of Taco Seasoning which is a time and money saver.
This lean ground turkey is pre-seasoned with just the right amount of spice; tastes great and contains 70% less fat than regular ground beef which is why it’s has become a staple in my kitchen.
I always pour in a little Olive Oil before adding the Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey to a pre-heated pan then cook it until it’s no longer pink with an internal temperature of 165 degrees. I also use a wooden spatula to break up the ground turkey as it cooks.
Once done, we put a few scoops of it into a Taco Boat then top it with diced onions, fresh cherry tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese and diced avocados. I also like to sprinkle mine with a little hot sauce because you know I like it spicy!
You can add extras like shredded lettuce, sour cream or even diced jalapeno peppers and wrap in a tortilla, or add to a hard Taco shell, but we like these Taco boats better.
How do you like to top your tacos?
