Ground Turkey Fajitas (Okay, so they are faux-jitas, but close enough, right?)
I was desperate for some new healthy recipes to add to our weekday dinners. A little googling brought me to this recipe from Cooks.com I altered it just a bit and ended up with a flavorful meal with zero guilt! The recipe below is for 2 servings, so feel free to alter the amounts to suit your family size!
|Ground Turkey Fajitas|| |

Matt can have more calories per day than I can, so he ate a couple of extra tortillas with the yummy turkey mixture inside. That’s not the only way to eat this, however..
I ate mine like this – in a bowl with a spoon and a single tortilla on the side. Yum yum!
