  • 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 oregano
  • 1 tsp kosher salt more to taste
  • 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.
