Turkey Tacos, read recipe for full ingredient list.
249.5 calories per taco, I ate two.
It's a bit frustrating when you're trying to eat lean, but also enjoy what you're eating. I'm a piggy and could have eaten three of these, easily. Still, for tacos, the calorie content is much better than if I had used full-calorie products, and since I don't eat red meat very often, the taste of the turkey replacing the beef wasn't even noticable. These were fantastic.
