Healthy Turkey Tacos

It’s “TACO TUESDAY” and it’s “HEALTHY TURKEY TACOS” on the menu tonight! I took it back to the basics  and substituted ground turkey for beef and blue corn crunchy shells instead of tortillas. What we did was cut out a little fat and carb-olas tonight making it a “Healthy Turkey Tacos!” I’ve never met a taco that I didn’t like or devour and these “Healthy Turkey Tacos” aim to please. See you here every Tuesday for a new “TACO” recipe @ www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com

Healthy Turkey Tacos

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say growing up we at tacos probably once a week. My mom would by an Old El Paso taco kit, ground beef, taco dressings and that was taco night. It was an inexpensive way to feed a family of four and create a meal in under 20 minutes.  You could purchase everything you needed for around $10 and everyone had a full belly. I’ve ventured out with tacos since growing up in Georgia and I dare to say I haven’t eaten Old El Paso taco kits since Georgia. My taste buds have grown a bit since then and so has my love for tacos. icon smile Healthy Turkey Tacos

Raise your hands if your a S’mores lover! Me, Me, Me! I made “S’mores Croissants” and they are nom, nom, nom good! The best part you can have these “S’mores Croissants” for breakfast or as a dessert. I know you have all ordered a chocolate croissant from a bakery before, right? Well, now with the help of pillsbury dough boy and a few extra ingredients here’s a rendition of a bakery version. It’s just a little sweeter and no campfire needed! icon wink Smores Croissants I wish when I popped a can of pillsbury croissants that the pillsbury dough boy would pop out and do his cute little giggle and start speaking to me! How cool would that be? I love that lil guy! Anyways, with the short cut dough and some marshmallows, chocolate morsels and nutella you got yourself some ooey gooey melt in your mouth goodness!

I know when someone say’s S’mores we automatically think of a campfire and probably a wire hanger (insert no more wire hangers mommy dearest voice, idk why that always pops in my head)  that has been opened up to create a rod to stick a marshmallow on the end. Then get it nice in toasty and stick it in between to graham crackers with a piece of hershey chocolate and wa-la you have yourself a S’more! At least this is how we did them growing up. It was always a real treat when it was cool outside and we had a fire built to sit around and make S’mores. It usually turned into a competition of who could roast the best marshmallow so that it wasn’t burnt on the outside but perfectly browned and melty on the inside. I like to think that I always won that competition! icon smile Smores Croissants What memories we create when we share food moments with friends and family. Memories that last a life time that no one can take from us. So, for my S’more lovers you can makes these year round and no fire needed and every bite taste of warm chocolatey love!
