Categories     main-dish

Time 1h

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 18

2 tablespoons corn oil
1 medium onion, chopped (1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup chopped canned tomatoes
3/4 pound ground turkey
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
Oil, for frying
12 (5-inch) corn tortillas, preferably white, or prepared taco shells
1/4 head romaine or iceberg, thinly sliced
3 ripe medium tomatoes, cored and diced
1 to 2 Hass avocados, diced
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
Sour cream, for garnish

Steps:

  • Put the oil, onions, garlic, jalapeno, and spices in a medium skillet, season with salt and cook over medium to medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until tender, about 10 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the tomatoes and boil to thicken, about 2 minutes. Stir in the turkey and chicken broth, adjust the heat so the mixture simmers and cook until the turkey is cooked through and the mixture thickens but is not dry, about 12 minutes. Stir in cilantro and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and cover.
  • To make the taco shells: Pour enough frying oil into a small skillet so it's about 3/4 of an inch deep; heat over medium to medium-high. Holding 1 edge of a tortilla with tongs, lay the other half in the oil, keeping it flat with a spatula. Cook until crisp, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Flip the tortilla over and repeat with the other half, holding the first side of the tortilla at an angle to make an open shell, cook for about 1 minute more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Put the fixings and meat in individual bowls and the taco shells on a platter. Serve, encouraging your diners to build their own tacos, with meat in the shell and the fixings on top.

GROUND TURKEY TACO MEAT



Ground Turkey Taco Meat image

This recipe has fewer calories because of the ground turkey and amazing flavor! It is a little spicy, but our family enjoys it this way. Because it has so much flavor, you cannot even tell it's not ground beef. It tastes great as a topping on baked potatoes as well as tacos. Enjoy!

  • TURKEY TACO MEAT: Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and once the oil is hot, add in the diced onion. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until soft and translucent. Add in the garlic and cook for 20-30 seconds. Add in all of the seasonings: 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 tablespoon beef bouillon powder. Stir around the spices until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Nothing should be burning; reduce the heat if needed.
  • TACO MEAT CONT.: Add in the ground turkey. Crumble the meat into small pieces and cook until no longer pink (but not cooked through all the way), about 5-8 minutes. Add in the tomato sauce and scrape the bottom of the pan to release any browned bits (this is where the flavor is!) Let simmer for 3-5 minutes, or until fully cooked through, and then remove from heat.
  • ASSEMBLY: Char/warm tortillas (Note 1). Add even amounts of the turkey taco meat and then sprinkle cheese right on top. The taco meat should be hot enough that the cheese will melt. Immediately add toppings of choice. Our favorites are a big scoop of sour cream, ripe sliced avocado (or guacamole), a few chopped cherry tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Enjoy hot!
