Food Snob

I resurrected an old recipe for Homemade Taco Seasoning last night and tonight set out to make some healthy ground turkey tacos.

I normally don’t add much into taco meat besides meat and seasoning. Maybe some onion. But tonight I was inspired to add in some veggies. I’m not big on veggies so I need to sneak them in when I can. I contemplated what would go well with ground turkey meat and came up with a few standard veggies you would eat in a fajita: onion and bell peppers.

And thus the fajita-style taco was born. I also picked up plenty of garlic and some fresh cilantro, too.

I ate two of these tacos but could have kept eating. And eating. And eating. Luckily for me I made such a huge recipe I can continue eating. And eating. For days. And days.

ingredients.

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 T. avocado oil
  • 1 recipe Homemade Taco Seasoning
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 medium-sized red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium-sized orange bell pepper, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • salt, to taste
  • tortillas (I used corn)
  • cilantro, for garnish
  • sour cream, for eating
  • any other favorite taco accouterments such as shredded cheese, salsa, lettuce, tomato, avocado, hot sauce, etc., if your heart so desires

directions.

  1. In an extra-large pan over medium or medium-low heat cook the onions and peppers until softened. I covered the pan to hasten the process.
  2. Add in garlic and ground turkey and cook the mixture until turkey is no longer pink making sure to break up the turkey into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Add the taco seasoning and stir to incorporate. You may wish to add a wee bit of water to make a bit of a taco gravy. Taste the meat and add salt if necessary. I did!
  4. Heat your tortillas. I heated mine in a pan over medium heat so that they got slightly browned on both sides.
  5. Top your tacos with the sour cream and cilantro or any other garnish you wish. Enjoy immediately.

I love tacos. Earlier this week I made ground turkey tacos that came pre-seasoned. They were good. Decent. Solid. These tacos rock. They crush the preseasoned ground turkey tacos I have been eating all week. These tacos are a bit spicy but the flavor is so good I wouldn’t weigh it down with a lot of taco toppings. To me the sour cream and cilantro were perfect accompaniments to the flavorful meat. I loved the addition of the bell peppers so much that I’m not sure I would want to make taco meat without it ever again!
