Spicy Turkey Tacos

 If you haven't tried cooking with ground turkey breast, give it a try. You can substitute

it for ground beef in most recipes. I have just started experimenting with various

recipes to see if turkey will taste as good. So far so good. Taco means "snack"

in Spanish, but they do seem to make a meal if you eat three tacos. To heat

the taco shell, heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds. 

 

 

Turkey Filling

1 1/4 - 1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey breast

2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black Tellicherry peppercorns

 

12 taco shells (one 4.6 ounce box)

 

Toppings

Thinly sliced iceberg lettuce

Shredded cheddar cheese

Sour Cream

Salsa

 

1. In a 5-quart nonstick sauté pan, brown the turkey over medium heat. 

 

2. Stir in chili powder, garlic salt and pepper. 

 

3. Cook until turkey is completely cooked. 

 

4. Spoon tablespoons of hot filling into warm taco shells.

 

5. Top with lettuce, cheese, sour cream and salsa. 

    Hint: You can make a taco salad by using tortilla chips in 

    place of the taco shells. Top salad with guacamole.

     Makes 12 Tacos to serve 4.
