Tasty Turkey Tacos

    25 minutes

    Turkey is a healthy meat and has a mild flavour which I find goes well in these healthy versions of tacos.

    Quick, easy, and delicious - perfect for a weeknight meal! I did use minced garlic vs. garlic powder and decided to make homemade guacamole vs. just mashing the avocados. I used "Pico de Gallo" by Rachel Love from this site and reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. Great recipe and while I'm used to "Mexican-style" tacos, these were a really nice change. Thanks for a great recipe Chefbound!  -  15 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We eat at least one version of this weekly. One of the few meals I don't get complaints from the kids. Instead shouts of "Yea! taco night."  -  28 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very simple but sometimes the most simple ingredients combined together turn out the best foods. I made my own pico de gallo. I ate my dinner early because I had to work and I really enjoyed it. The only change I made was used fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I think me making homemade pico de gallo was what made it so good. Simple and delicious!  -  23 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
