Best Taco Recipe Ever

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! To celebrate this fun holiday, Tim and I made our favorite turkey taco recipe. I found this recipe a few years ago and it has become a regular dish in our household. It’s a light take on a classic food. The little hints of cinnamon are subtle and make this dish unique and delicious.

Turkey Taco's

  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 medium-size onion, chopped

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey

  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce

  • hard taco shells

  • 1 can (11 oz) Mexicorn, drained

  • shredded lettuce, sour cream, chopped cilantro and onion for garnish, if desired

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion & crumble in the ground turkey; cook. Stir occasionally for 7-8 minutes or until onion is tender and turkey is no longer pink. Stir in garlic salt, cinnamon, cumin, all spice and pepper and tomato sauce. Simmer and cover for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, heat taco shells according to directions on the box.

Add corn to turkey mixture and heat through about 2 minutes. To serve, spoon about 1/3 cup of filling into each warmed taco shell. Garnish with lettuce, sour cream, etc. Serve with tossed salad.

mmmm. can you hear the crunch? Let the cheese melt…
