Ground Turkey Black Bean Tacos
I love ground turkey, mostly because my kids will eat it, so we have “Taco NIght” at our house a couple of times a month. We set up a “Taco bar” with all different ingredients and everyone picks what they want. My daughter and I like to have a taco salad, my husband likes to have tacos and my son likes “nachos” with crispy corn tortillas. Everyone’s happy and dinner problem solved! It’s also quick and easy to make after a weeknight practice. This recipe, adapted from Clean Eating Magazine (one of my favorites!), includes beans which are nutrient dense, counting as both a protein and a vegetable serving.
