Taco Night doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure with this delicious Turkey Taco Casserole, and you and your family can enjoy a favorite finger food more often as part of a healthy diet. But shhhh, don’t tell your kids – chances are they won’t even notice the lighter, more nutritious ingredients in this recipe!
The fact that this recipe uses lean ground turkey breast as opposed to ground beef is the first substitution you can feel good about. Simply cook the ground turkey in a skillet, adding fresh flavor with chopped onion and garlic, as well as fiber with black beans and salsa. There’s no need to rely on prepackaged taco seasoning with this recipe! Also, hard corn taco shells are gluten-free, and they’re fairly low in calories and fat, too.
Turkey Taco Casserole couldn’t be easier to whip up. Simply arrange the shells in a 4 quart temp-tations® baker, fill with the cooked turkey and bean mixture, sprinkle with a little low fat shredded cheddar cheese and bake!
Even the toppings get a makeover here – with a yummy, creamy sauce made from plain yogurt, lime juice and lime zest (you won’t miss the sour cream), as well as shredded lettuce with chopped cherry tomatoes – perfectly served in little ramekins. For even more color and variety, add some chopped avocado (a great source of heart-healthy fats) and other chopped veggies and herbs such as green onion and cilantro. And serve on this gorgeous Floral Lace dinnerware.
