Traditional Taco toppings: shredded sharp cheese, romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, taco sauce, black beans, corn, etc.

Cook the ground turkey in a frying pan; draining off any excess juices. Add the onions and a clove of fresh garlic to the meat & cook until tender, stirring frequently.

Finely chop the spinach in food processor. Puree the tomatoes in food processor.

    1. If my non tomato / non spinach eaters will eat it, it’s definitely worth a try ~ lol! Good Luck!

  1. Hi Jodie,

    1. flatbread is delicious, especially FlatOut Breads brand. You should try it if you haven’t. Thanks for hosting & look forward to visiting back soon. Have a great week….

  2. Tacos are very popular at our house. I prefer my tacos in soft wraps rather than the hard corn taco shells. I’m always being sneaky and hiding veggies in things, never thought to do it with taco mince! 😉

    1. Yes – taco meat is a great way to add in extra veggies :)! My non tomato eaters eat them all of the time (LOL)!
