Turkey Soft Tacos

“Though I’m not a native of San Antonio, I do enjoy the spicy local flavor,” Pattie McGlinchey says from Texas. “Bean-and-corn turkey tacos are my 5-year-old’s favorite. I love that they’re a cinch to put together and healthy, too…but don’t tell that to my son!”

    Not awful, but very boring.

    Used 1# extra lean ground beef (93/7) in place of ground turkey. Needs more spice, would increase the amount of chili powder to 2-3 teaspoons.
