Get your taste buds ready for this simple and quick turkey taco meat! You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own taco meat seasoning.
Prep Time:5 min
Cook Time:15 min
Total Time:20 minutes
Yield:5 servings 1x
1.5 lb 93/7 organic Fulton Farms ground turkey (one pack from Costco -671 g )
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp pepper
3 Tbsp (45 g) green enchilada sauce
Heat a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. (I love my enamel cast iron.) Add a mist of 100% olive oil spray and let it heat up for a few seconds. Add the ground turkey, breaking it apart into pieces. Let it sit for a couple of minutes to get some color, then continue to break apart. Add all of your seasonings and enchilada sauce (or water) and combine well. Cook and crumble for a few more minutes until it’s cooked through.
Use in tacos, bowls, salads etc! I love it as an easy prepped protein to throw in my salads all week!
If you use a more traditional 93/7 ground turkey, they’re usually going to be about 8 fat/4 oz. This will change the macros per serving of cooked taco meat by +4 fat, – 2.5 protein.
