How To Make 5-Ingredient Hearty Turkey Tacos

Turkey tacos are a bit of a modification to the common ground beef tacos. With salsa and cotija cheese atop, these tasty tacos never fail to impress!

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1tbspolive oil
  • 1lblean ground turkey
  • Salt,to taste
  • Tasty hearty spice blend,one pouch
  • ½mediumwhite onion
  • 8corn tortillas
  • 1cupsalsa
  • 1cupcotija cheese,crumbled
  • 1lime,sliced into wedges


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is simmering, add the onion and cook for about 10 minutes, or until starting to soften and caramelize.

  2. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the ground turkey. Season with the salt and hearty spice blend. Cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, allowing the turkey to brown slightly. Once the turkey is cooked through, remove the pan from the heat.

  3. Heat the tortillas in a clean skillet over medium heat or directly over a medium-low flame on a gas stove. Wrap the hot tortillas in a clean kitchen towel to keep warm as you heat the remaining tortillas.

  4. To assemble the tacos, fill the hot tortillas with the turkey filling and garnish with 1 tablespoon of salsa and 1 tablespoon of cotija cheese. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
