    Default Review of Turkey Tacos

    Turkey Tacos
    8oz Lean Ground Turkey
    2T Taco Seasoning

    4 Corn Tortillas
    1C 1Shredded lettuce
    C Chopped Tomatoes
    4T Sour Cream

    Okay, so I ended realizing that the 8 oz of turkey went a lot further than I thought so I changed this to 6 servings which made it 3 points per taco. When you eat 3 it actually counts it as 8 points, even better! They were quite yummy and pretty filling. I think I will add more veggies next time and I didn't actually measure out the taco seasoning so I was a bit light handed.

    I had half left over of the turkey so for lunch today, I sauteed the rest of the meat with a couple of cups of fresh spinach and some chopped tomatoes and added some more seasoning. They were fabulous!

    That sounds really good! You could maybe do another variation and make lettuce cups? I have done it with seasoned taco meat and also when I make chicken fajitas. I put the seasoned meat/veggies in lettuce leaves instead of tortillas.

    I also have a recipe at home for asian style lettuce wraps with ground chicken. I bet they would taste great with ground turkey. They are like the ones from PF Changs with a bit of hoisin sauce, fresh cucumber and mint. Very good. I am on travel now, but will share when I return later this week.

    Lettuce wraps are a great idea! Maybe next time.

    I am doing the new program. I only lost .7lbs this first week. I am not pleased but I did have pizza on Saturday so I am blaming it on that. I was within my weekly points so I guess I will just have to stick to my daily and not use the weekly.

    That PF Changs recipe sounds good too. Can't wait to see it!

    Sure. I return home on Friday and will get it then. I don't make the lettuce wraps that often because I can't remember to grab fresh mint at the grocery. I should grow my own and have them whenever I want...

    I stopped using beef a long time ago, so I always use turkey in my tacos, so it's nice to see someone else trying it too! In fact, we had them this week! It is so good and back when I was trying to convince DH to switch to turkey, he could never tell the difference! I like the lettuce wrap idea. I have some leftover meat, so I will be doing that for lunch tomorrow!

    Sounds yummy! I've switched all my ground meat over to turkey.
