I took Jessica Seinfeld’s recipe and tweaked it a bit. These turned out great and everyone ate them! 🙂

1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 14-oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes, with their juice
2 T cup sweet potato, carrot, or butternut squash puree (use baby food)
2 T wheat germ
1 packet taco seasoning
1 pkg. taco shells or flour tortillas
Garnish: cheese, sour cream, avocado, salsa…whatever you like on your tacos

Cook meat in large nonstick skillet. Drain fat.

Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, vegetable puree, wheat germ and seasoning mix.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the meat is no longer pink and the mixture begins to thicken, 8-10 minutes.

Fill the taco shells/tortillas with the meat mixture and add your favorite toppings.

Did I change anything? I added the wheat germ and reduced the amount of puree. We also always use flour tortillas, so I added that as an option.

What did the family think? It was a hit!

    How much sweet potato, etc? 2 T Cup? We always make turkey tacos with grated squash in them. We need to mix up WHAT veggies we use. 🙂
