* Tara Notes:
You can use ground turkey, lean beef or chicken, all work really well. I also just make a big batch of the taco seasoning and have around anytime I want to use it. You can make your own taco shells or fry them but usually I find that buying the box kind (the ones that stand up themselves) are seriously the easiest and fastest way to go.
