Turkey Tacos

Turkey Tacos

This is a lower fat version of normal tacos as I use ground turkey instead of ground beef.  Turkey is high in protein and tastes great in a taco.  This is a fun meal to cook for the family, and let everyone make their own tacos.

Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 10 – 12 Corn tortillas – GF
  • 1 lb ground Turkey
  • 1 brown onion diced 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp pure cocoa powder
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped 
  • 1 ½  cups water
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste

 

  • Serve with: 
  • 1 cup cilantro sliced 
  • 2 cups lettuce sliced 
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 avocado sliced 
  • 1 cup sweetcorn 
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced 

 

 

  • Equipment needed
  • large frying pan to cook turkey
  • another frying pan to heat tacos- or how ever you normally heat them. 
  • Chopping board, 
  • wooden spoons 

Method:

  1. Heat the olive in a pan and add the chopped onions, garlic, paprika and cumin
  2. Fry together until the onion is soft, 2-3 minutes
  3. Add the ground turkey and cook for a further 5 minutes
  4. Add the tomato puree, water and cocoa powder and stir together
  5. Leave to simmer gently for 20 minutes, the liquid will have evaporated mainly leaving a thick sauce covering the ground turkey
  6. Heat up the tacos, and serve the ground turkey in a bowl on the table with the rest of the filling ingredients.  
  7. Let everyone help themselves and make their own tacos
