Happy Tex-Mex Thanksgiving 

 

Turkey Tacos for Thanksgiving

 

Never one for convention, I decided to make a Tex-Mex Thanksgiving dinner for my boyfriend and I.  I got this recipe from a comment on Lifehacker’s What’s Your Go To Date Recipe and made one modification. They taste so good and they are very hypoglycemic-friendly (high protein, low carb).

Serves 3

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages of Sauzon (not included in the nutrition info, it wasn’t an option on the calculator).
  • 1 lb package of 97% lean turkey
  • 9 corn (not blended, fully corn) tortillas
  • 3/4 cup Mexican-style shredded cheese
  • 1 red onion, chopped (I only use a small portion on each)
  • 1 5.3 oz cup of Fage Greek Yogurt plain (this is a healthy sour cream substitute)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Wing sauce

Directions:

  • Toast the corn tortillas on both sides
  • Cook the turkey, add both packets of Sauzon about half way through, cook until brown
  • Sprinkle some of the cheese on the tortillas
  • Add on the turkey
  • Sprinkle on a bit more cheese
  • From original directions: If you need to keep this warm, place in oven on lowest setting until ready to serve
  • Top with 1 Tbsp of Greek Yogurt, some red onion, and however much cilantro you want on each taco
  • Drizzle hot sauce on top
  • Enjoy the deliciousness
