My older sister has this recipe for turkey tacos that will blow your mind. I was barely taught this recipe since my sis knows I’m on the struggle bus right now being a new wife and all. Trial and error y’all. But seriously, these are the best tacos ever and they’re super quick and inexpensive. I’m all about those three things when it comes to cooking; tasty, quick to make, inexpensive.
So I thought I’d share it with you because who doesn’t love some good tacos, right?
My husband just left for spring training so I was able to make them with my sis, alone in case of failure. Thank goodness, because I’m tired of failing with these recipes Pinterest has me working on and also failing to feed my husband some real food. I’ll get better, I hope! I killed it when making these though and I hope you do too if you try to make these.
This is what you’ll need:
1 lb ground turkey
3 Serrano chili’s
Half of a red onion
1 jar of Herdez salsa verde salsa
Shredded cheddar cheese
Handful of cilantro
Here we go…
(Note, I am no chef!)
First you want to prep your add ins and toppings.
This would be your onion half, Serrano chilies, cilantro, lettuce, tomatoes and avocado.
Once that’s all prepped you’re going to want to season your turkey with some garlic powder, salt, and pepper. This part I didn’t measure out, but it was about 6 shakes of garlic powder, 4 shakes of salt, 4 shakes of pepper. This part is totally up to because like I said, I’m no chef.
Alright so our seasoned ground turkey is now on a pan with some olive oil over a medium flame.
The meat is going to brown after a couple of minutes.
And then you’re going to add your red onion that you chopped up, your cilantro, and your Serrano chilies.
Stir that all up.
Next you’re gonna add the whole jar of salsa verde into the mix.
Let it all cook together, you’ll smell the chili. Yum.
That’s it for the meat part!
So, you’re going to heat up another pan that we will be using for our tortillas. Don’t put anything in the pan. We just want to heat the tortillas up, we’re not adding anything to them.
Once the pan is warm you’re going to grab two tortillas. These two tortillas are bffs now, inseparable. We’re layering the tortillas because if we use just one, it’ll fall apart.
Flip the tortilla (2 tortillas but we’re treating it as 1) after a minute or two on each side. The tortilla should create some bubbles in it, which means it’s ready to go.
So your tortillas are done and your turkey is done.
While the tortilla is still warm, start serving.
Place your turkey mix on your tortilla.
Add the cheddar cheese right away so it melts easily because everything is hot.
Then all the fixings you prefer on your tacos.
I suggest going all out for the best taste.
And wallah!! Tish’s turkey tacos,
