Expert Tips

*All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.

Control the heat by selecting mild, medium or hot enchilada sauce.

Turkey sausage is low in fat but high in flavor! Check the label on the sausage to make sure it is made with turkey breast, which is lower in fat than turkey sausage made with dark meat.
