Skinny Tacos Perfect For Any Taco Tuesday

Raise your hand if you feel like your life has slowed down a bit from the holidays!  At the same time, I feel like I've been busier than ever, but because I set some goals for the new year I've got things a bit more under control.  I'm trying to be a bit more organized with my time, plan meals and also trying to make healthier choice for my family.  I've learned in the past that I have better success when I start slow and change a little at a time.  And that's where this recipe for Skinny Tacos come into play!

My husband and I love homemade tacos and eat them on a semi-regular basis.  I typically use ground beef, but since the new year have switched over to extra lean ground turkeyJennie-O has amazing turkey products which in turns makes these tacos just as amazing!

My little boys didn't know the difference, but I sure felt a little better about serving these to them!  All of the ingredients are fresh and worked really well with the Jennie-O ground turkey.

You most certainly could use flour tortillas, but I love the way fresh corn tortillas crisp up when you toast them over a flame!  
I also love serving tacos because everyone can make them the way they like.  My husband likes things on the spicy side so he usually will add jalapenos, where I like mine on the cheesy side so I load up on cheese.  However you make them, make sure to give this recipe a try!
