      You are not allowed to use 93/7 (fat lean ratio) ground turkey on phase 1 ! Only ground turkey breast is allowed.

      This is honestly the best Phase 1 meal I have ever had! So Delicious and filling! I used 2 pounds of fat free ground turkey breast...there was more than enough seasoning for it to be spicy. I also added onions when I cooked up the turkey. My toppings were fat free cheese, fat free sour cream and salsa. I LOVED IT! IF YOU ARE A TACO EATER ON PHASE 1....MAKE THIS!!! The lettuce "shells" were good...kind of messy, but no fault of the recipe's...just me tearing them off the head wrong. :)

      I've been having a tough time on Phase 1 and this recipe was a life saver! My husband even said we might not need shells for tacos anymore. The best part is that you don't feel like you're compromising taste for ingredients, it genuinely tastes great! The lettuce also adds a nice little crunch.
