Turkey Spaghetti and A Mexican Treat!

I was never used to eating turkey but I made a switch a few months ago after discovering ways on how to incorporate them in our regular family meals. I have other ground turkey recipes in my previous post and now I continue to think of ways to cook it.

My daughter loves spaghetti and that's when I thought of using Jennie-O Lean Ground turkey as part of the sauce. I must admit it is a bit bland than beef or pork meats (possibly because they made it lean and there's also extra lean) but hey, I can always add more spices. After that, there's no telling what it is! Seriously. There's no smell, if you ought to think about it. Look how tempting it was!

For the last Cinco de Mayo, we had a mini-celebration with a few close friends. I thought that would be the perfect time to use Jennie-O Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey. Honestly, I was surprised they have flavored turkey too! I think my husband was more excited than I was to try using it for the first time! He was even the one who prepared our tortilla. He just sauteed the Taco Seasoned Turkey with very little olive oil (you bet you can use any other kind of oil) and some fresh minced garlic.
I have to tell, I really don't like burritos, tacos or tortillas, but this was really really really good (I rarely say a "really" thrice)! I am not kidding, after one bite I knew I would be getting another one!!! I didn't even have to ask my friends how they liked it, one of them told me it was really tempting! The other said it tastes like the ones you order at Chipotle! Geeee! Now I know what to serve a big group next time. Those ingredients can feed more than a dozen and it's not really expensive to make! You'll even save time because it's also seasoned and the other ingredients are easy to find.

After all this, I can share 4 reasons why you can switch to turkey just like I did:
1) IT'S DELICIOUS - The tender, juicy and mouthwatering flavor of turkey is hard to resist. Jennie-O products make it easy to create satisfying meals you family will love.
2) YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT - It's easy to eat well without sacrificing the taste. This delicious, smart and versatile protein works great in recipes that typically call for ground beef.
3) IT'S EASY TO FIND - I buy mine at Target, Safeway and Weis at their refrigerated section. Look for Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey in convenient pre-seasoned Italian and Taco varieties for quick and simple meals.
4) IT'S VERSATILE - If you can make it with ground beef, you can make it with ground turkey! That simple!
