My grandma is super in to health and calories and weighing no more than 108 pounds. The rest of us? Not so much. Our feelings don’t really matter though as she’s the one who cooks for family dinners, haha. She loves us. She just wants what’s best for us.
Ground turkey is often on the menu these days. Honestly, I didn’t like it at first, but I’ve grown accustomed to it, and now I really enjoy it. It just takes a lot of seasoning and flavor. These verde ground turkey tacos have all of that, and they’re way healthier than ground beef tacos. I like how little grease is involved in these tacos.
My SO absolutely adores ground turkey. It took me forever to be ok with it, but now that I like it, we use it fairly often in cooking. We also love tacos so this ground turkey tacos recipe just makes sense for us!
Thanks to the folks at Together as Family for this delicious meal!
