Healthier Taco Recipe

Healthified Baked Tacos

Baked tacos has become one of my favorite dinners to make when I need something nutritious in a hurry. I’ve served them for parties and taken them to carry-in dinners and everyone loves them. The best thing about them is they are easy to make and by substituting ground turkey for ground beef and mixing in a can of fat-free refried beans you can add protein without adding a lot of calories.
