Turkey Taco Seasoning Recipe

I thought it might be nice to start sharing some recipes that are healthy, but yet still yummy, as I know I appreciate finding such recipes on the web. πŸ™‚

One of our absolute favorites that has become somewhat of a staple for us when we are trying to eat healthy, but want to feel like we’re somewhat indulging, has been turkey tacos.

We use this recipe two ways. One, to make taco salad. Generally we will include lettuce, tomato, avocado and either reduced-fat cheddar or rice shreds cheddar cheese substitute. Second, to make tacos, in which case we’ll use low carb/high fiber tortillas and light sour cream.

This recipe is also extremely low in sodium.

  • 1 lb (16 oz) Ground Turkey (93/7)
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Morton’s Lite Salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • dash cayenne pepper for heat (optional)
  • 1 cup water

Brown ground turkey over medium heat. Add spices and water. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Enjoy! πŸ™‚
