I love Mexican food! We grew up having it quite a bit and I think that is why all the girls love it so much. If you are looking for a new Mexican Dish you have to try this - it is delicious!
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 can fat free refried beans
1 pkg taco seasoning
14 to 16 manicotti shells uncooked (whole wheat if you can find them)
2 (16 oz) bottles/cans green taco sauce
1 cup Mexican grated cheese
This is the green sauce I use- I love it!
Brown ground turkey and drain. Mix cooked ground turkey with beans and taco seasoning.
Stuff mixture into uncooked shells. I use a plastic baggie with a cut corner. Then squeeze the mixture in both sides of the manicotti shell.
Lay stuffed shells into a 9X13 pan. Mix the green taco sauce with 1 bottle of water. (Use one of the bottles the sauce came in.) Pour sauce over manicotti, cover with foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Put back in oven until cheese is melted without the foil this time.
Garnish with green onions, olives, tomatoes, and cut lettuce.
