The name of this recipe Crock-Pot Taco Junk is funny. But it is a recipe we have enjoyed for years. With healthy ground turkey and beans this recipe is a low fat and high fiber delight!
Crock-Pot Taco Junk
This is a recipe I got from an online forum based on the South Beach Diet many many moons ago. Does anyone remember forums and the South Beach Diet? 🙂
I’ve adapted it a little over the years to our family’s tastes but it is still high fiber, low fat and delicious.
You can eat this dish right out of a bowl, however it is also tasty served over cooked rice or in a taco salad. You can also wrap it up in a tortilla as a tasty burrito filling if you don’t mind your burritos a little messy.
Because this recipe is packed with lean ground turkey and beans it is rather low in fat and full of healthy fiber. If you would like to make this into a vegetarian recipe all you need to do is leave out the ground turkey and replace it with some additional beans. Pinto beans would be great I think!
This recipe uses a packet of both taco seasoning mix and ranch dressing mix; however if you would like to control the sodium content a little bit more you might want to consider making your own seasoning mixes. You can find our recipes here:
