Turkey Lettuce Tacos

Turkey taco meat is the bomb- you can enjoy it at dinner in lettuce leaves or taco shells and then have it the next day for taco salads. We made lettuce tacos tonight and enjoyed them with avocado, black beans, a sprinkling of grated cheddar and Lundberg Rice Chips on the side for a little crunch. Delicious!

Turkey Taco Filling

1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Dash of ground red pepper (optional)
Cooking spray
2 pounds ground turkey
3/4 cup water

Additional Ingredients for Tacos:

8  large butter lettuce leaves (or taco shells if you are a traditionalist!)
1 can black beans, drained
chopped tomato
chopped avocado
shredded cheddar


1. Combine first 9 ingredients in a small bowl; add red pepper, if desired.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add turkey; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Sprinkle with spice mixture; cook 1 minute or until fragrant, stirring constantly. Add 3/4 cup water; cook 4 minutes or until thickened and meat is done.
4. Fill lettuce leaves or taco shells evenly with the fillings you like!
