These ground turkey tacos are quick, easy, and healthy. The ground turkey is cooked in a delicious spice blend and dinner is on your table in 20 minutes!
In honor of Canadian Thanksgiving (I live in Canada), today’s post is about turkey tacos. See what I did there? Yeah, I didn’t feel like cooking a huge bird. I am kind of over turkey. 😛
Last time I roasted a turkey was about four years ago and we had leftovers for aaaaages. I got so sick of it that I still don’t want to roast the damn thing. On every holiday when my mom asks me what kind of bird she should roast for our family get-together, the answer is never turkey. I can only take turkey in small doses… such as ground up and in tacos.
These healthy ground turkey tacos aren’t really reminiscent of Thanksgiving at all, but what’s wrong with rebelling a bit?
I considered deconstructing the turkey dinner and putting it into taco form, but that just sounds vile. I’d rather have guacamole in my tacos than cranberry sauce. 🙂
How to make ground turkey tacos
Heat the olive oil in a skillet; add the turkey along with the spices. Cook, using your spoon to break up the meat, for 10 minutes or until it’s cooked through. Meanwhile, warm tortillas in the oven.
Serve these ground turkey soft tacos with desired toppings including sour cream and my homemade guacamole.
