Saucy Turkey Taco Filling

Most taco nights in our house include turkey meat seasoned with homemade taco seasoning and all the regular fixin's.. Tonight I tried to "sauce up the filling" a bit with a tasty result!  My husband and I enjoyed it on a bed of spinach with grated cheese and avocados and my kids put it in corn tortillas with cheese and shredded lettuce sprinkled on top. If you don't like beans, just leave 'em out.

Saucy Turkey Taco Filling

1/2 onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1 15 ounce can drained and rinsed black beans (or kidney beans or pinto or none if you don't like beans)
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

In large skillet, saute onion in olive oil sprinkled with 1/2 teaspoon salt until soft, about 5 minutes. Add turkey meat and garlic and saute until cooked through. Then add beans, tomato sauce, chicken broth,chili powder, oregano, cumin, red wine vinegar and rest of salt and simmer for about 5 minutes until thickened. Serve with crisp corn taco shells or on top of lettuce. Enjoy!
