  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
  • 12 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning - Try our homemade taco seasoning
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 corn tortillas lightly toasted
  • Fixings for toppings – I used a bit of crema sour cream, Cojita cheese, picante sauce, roasted jalapeno peppers, diced avocado and chopped cilantro


  • Heat a large pan to medium heat. Add olive oil and swirl.
  • Add onion, jalapeno pepper and ground turkey. Cook it all together about 8 minutes, or until the turkey is nearly cooked through.
  • Add taco seasoning and water. Stir. Reduce heat and allow to simmer about 10 minutes, until most of the moisture reduces and the flavorings thicken up. Leave just a bit of the liquid in the pan to keep the turkey nice and juicy and moist.
  • Serve onto toasted tortillas and top with your favorite fixings!
