::Turkey Tacos:: #miercolesdefoodie

One of my favorite dinners is taco night. For obvious reasons. It's perfect for busy nights, it's an easy, DIY, dinner. I simply create a filling and layout all the toppings. The combinations are endless. Our family loves this dinner and we make them often. 

Last night I made a spicy turkey taco filling. It was fast and easy to prepare. 

::I used the following::

  • Ground Turkey about 1lbs. 
  • Canned corn
  • 1 Medium tomatoe
  • 1/4 of a white Onion
  • 1 large Jalapeño 
::I did the following::

  1. I diced {or chopped into big chunks}all my veggies and drained the canned corn. 
  2. I seasoned my met with garlic salt and black pepper and a little of Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper. {season to taste}
  3. I then added some Olive Oil to my frying pan and waiting for it to heat on medium. 
  4. I added my defrosted Turkey Meat, when it was half cooked I added all my veggies and corn.  I added a bit more seasoning while it was browning. I let it cook on high for about 10 minutes and then cook on medium for about 15 minutes. 

Once my turkey meat is fully cooked and browned and my veggies are tender, it's done!

::Usually our toppings are::
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Salsa {homemade or canned}
  • Lettuce
And, really anything that you want! 

::Last night my toppings were::
  • Avocado
  • Sour Cream 
  • & Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Taco Night success! 

I also used the leftover meat for my lunch today...nachos which you can find on my Instagram

What about you? What is your favorite dinner night for your family?!
