Turkey Tacos

We love taco night in this house.  Any kind of tacos...beef, shredded pork, shrimp, fish, and a new addition...turkey.  These tasty, spicy, crunchy tacos are the perfect fix for when you're feeling like a quick taco night at home.  Using ground turkey instead of beef cuts back the typical grease and fat that usually comes along with tacos, making this a quick and satisfying meal you can feel good about eating.  Try these out on Super Bowl Sunday and you won't feel so guilty while everyone else is munching on wings dripping in me!


1 pound ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ small onion, minced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon chili con limon
1 tablespoon oregano
Salt and pepper
1 cup water
Cilantro, grated cheddar cheese, tomatoes, onions, sour cream for topping

Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil.  Add ground turkey and brown.  Once the meat is browned add all the seasonings.  Season generously with salt and pepper to taste.  Add water, turn heat down to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Don't forget to add some Guacamole and chips to complete the meal!
