Ground Turkey Tacos

Ground Turkey Tacos

Turkey Tacos – includes a filling of lean ground turkey that’s seasoned with fresh salsa and plenty of spices, then it’s layered into warmed tortillas and finished with all the best classic taco toppings! Weekends usually call for quick recipes, like these simple turkey tacos.

They have a quick prep and can be ready in 30 minutes! We even simplify with a store-bought salsa to save time, and you could also go the pre-shredded lettuce and pre-shredded cheese route for more short-cuts.

Or just assign help with toppings to a family member or friend if they’ll get to enjoy the meal too and you can have dinner ready in a flash!

These healthy turkey tacos are definitely an upgrade from your standard taco seasoning packet tacos. The secret is to add some freshness (bright salsa, garlic, cilantro) and your own blend of spices.
