I’m all about simple, delicious recipes made from real and clean foods.  These amazing turkey tacos definitely fit the bill.  They are a cinch to prepare and are perfect to pack for lunch the next day as well.

Turkey Tacos

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground turkey breast
  • Spices: Onion powder, garlic salt, smoked paprika, cumin, Mexican chili powder, black pepper, cayenne powder)
  • Homemade or store bought guacamole (check ingredients!)
  • Greek yogurt
  • Pico de gallo
  • Whole wheat tortillas
  • Your favorite taco toppings (cilantro, lime wedges, romaine, etc)

Instructions:

In a medium sized skillet, add the ground turkey.  Season liberally with onion powder, garlic salt, smoked paprika, cumin, and black pepper.  Add a Mexican chili powder and cayenne powder to taste – these can add a lot of heat!  Cook the turkey until done, stirring to incorporate the spices. Heat the tortillas until soft and flexible.  Spread about 2 tablespoons of guacamole on the tortilla, top with meat and a generous amount of pico de gallo.  Dollop on some Greek yogurt.  Add any other toppings to complete this tasty taco!

Variations:

  • Swap ground turkey for sliced chicken breast.
  • Ditch the tortilla for brown rice or quinoa.
  • Go low carb by making a taco salad with fresh romaine and spinach.
  • Taco meat can be frozen for easy meal prep during busy weeks.
