I really like tacos, but I especially like salsa. Foods with salsa are always a fun treat, so I like to make different varieties of tacos. I have extra turkey from Thanksgiving still. So, I thawed a container of dark meat and decided to make tacos. I made more homemade tortillas (recipe here), and I just decided to wing it. I’ve begun freezing diced onion, since I don’t want my onions going bad, So that is why my diced onion was in an ice chunk. I also would recommend adding the onion, frozen or not, with the spices to give them enough time to cook. You could even add them before the turkey if you’d like. I served my tacos with mozzarella, jarred salsa, and some romaine lettuce from the garden.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 cup of torn turkey. Heat for 3 minutes before adding 1 Tbsp oil. Continue to cook and stir until turkey is browned.
- Once your turkey is browned, add 1/2 diced onion. Add 1 tsp paprika, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tbsp cayenne pepper, and 2 tsp garlic powder. Stir and cook for 1 minute before adding 1/4 cup water.
- Stir mixture and let cook until all liquid boils off. Once liquid is boiled off, add 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Stir until melted, then serve on homemade tortillas with lettuce and salsa.
