Well Tuesday is once again upon us and the schedule, routine driven Mamma, which I am, once again brings us Taco Tuesday. Not that we have "regular" tacos every Tuesday. I do mix it up on a weekly basis. Some weeks it's taco casserole, some weeks fish tacos, others regular tacos, and others fajita style tacos. Well this week, we are having Turkey Tacos, I am not a fan of ground beef, for many reasons, but primarily because I don't like the taste. We substitute Ground Turkey for everything which would traditionally call for ground beef. I hope that this recipe finds it's way to your families dinner table and maybe even a Taco Tuesday tradition can be born. Cheers.....
