Continuing with the Sweet & Spicy theme (pretty much one of the best flavor combos), this week I made Sweet & Spicy Turkey Tacos. I opted for 99% fat free ground turkey, some heat, and tons of veggies for these tacos…. because beach season! Need I say more??? Sweet & Spicy Turkey Tacos |

I sauted the ground turkey in La Victoria’s new Mango Habenero salsa  because it was super easy & delicious & I get lazy when it gets hot. Am I the only one? I just don’t want to spend all of my time chopping. Let me just say… yum! I may or may not have been taking bites straight from the bowl when they were done. To amp up the fiber and veggies, I tossed together a medley of black beans and zucchini to mix on top. Toast up some whole grain tortillas and you are good to go for a super healthy, high flavor, insanely easy summer dinner!

There may have been some diving into this salsa with chips after making the dish. The salsa starts out with that sweet mango flavor (you can actually see the chunks of mango!) then punches you with that heat. I’m a total wimp when it comes to spicy foods but that sweetness made it hard to not go back for more! Check out La Victoria’s website for more recipe ideas. There is a Mango Habenero Kielbasa Bites recipe that I have my eye on next.
