Kiddie Turkey Tacos

This is what typically goes on during mealtime. M {hopefully} eats about half her meal & veggies, and LK eats & plays & eats & plays, & plays, & plays… leaving more food on the floor than I’m sure actually entered her mouth.

To make life a little easier we have Turkey Tacos every Monday or Tuesday, then we have leftovers one or two days per week. Knowing that I can pull a meal together in ten minutes gives me a little relief in my already chaotic life.

My Turkey Taco recipe is easy.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1.5 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup water

Bring a large pan to medium heat. Drizzle a little olive oil and cook the turkey until browned. While the turkey is cooking, combine the flour, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, & pepper in a bowl. Whisk together, then add your water and whisk until smooth. Once the turkey is completely cooked through, pour in your seasoning mix and stir for about 5-7 minutes until the meat absorbs the liquid.

Now you can make your tacos anyway you like 🙂 We eat ours with whole-wheat tortillas, beans, shredded cheese, lettuce, & tomatoes.

Here’s how I make M’s kiddie tacos:

It’s a super easy meal {which she loves}, and is perfect for both lunch & dinner leftovers!
