Recipe: Turkey Taco Fiesta Cups
These turkey taco fiesta cups are a weekly favorite at my house! This healthy Mexican meal is also perfect for a dinner party or when entertaining because everyone can add their own toppings! Low carb, packed with protein and full of southwestern flavors, this low carb taco recipe is a hit! I’ve made my own taco seasoning for years and my family and friends prefer it to eating tacos out. My guacamole recipe is also a nice addition to this meal.
