I have a new found taco love — and it comes in the form of TURKEY! Oh my goodness — these Chipotle Turkey Tacos are my new favorite way to indulge in Mexican flare.
These tacos are super delicious. Not only are the delicious, but they are 1/2 the calories and fat of a beef taco. Switching out the beef for turkey is a very smart move and helps improve your health!
