Can an old favorite be improved upon? Of course! Forget those little sodium packed seasoning mixes and follow this recipe instead. Use this seasoned meat in taco or enchilada casseroles, taco salads and burritos. I make extra for the freezer for an even easier meal down the road. Feel free to use ground beef as well.
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, finely chopped, or 2 teaspoons granulated onion
4 cloves fresh garlic, minced, or 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 1/2 lbs. ground 93% lean turkey
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup water
1) Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the canola oil. Add the onion and cook for 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another minute.
2) Add the meat and cook through. Break up the meat with a spatula while cooking. Add the chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and add the water. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes or until most of the water has evaporated. Serve with warmed soft or crunchy shells and your favorite toppings.
Enjoy with your happy family!
