Turkey Tacos

I haven’t had tacos in a long time, so I was very excited to make these. Instead of ground beef this recipe uses ground turkey, so you save a little on the saturated fat. Plus this recipe adds beans, so there is more fiber and nutrients than regular tacos. Plus they are  just super tasty! This recipe is from The Whole Foods Market Cookbook.

olive oil

1 pound ground turkey ( I used 1/2 white meat, 1/2 dark meat)

1/2 small onion, chopped

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 Tbsp chili powder

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp cumin

1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

2 1/2 cups cooked kidney beans (one can)

8 oz tomato sauce

In a large sauce pan heat the oil over medium hight heat. Add the turkey and saute about 5-10 minutes, until cooked through. Add the onion, peppers, garlic, chili powder, oregano, cumin, and cocoa powder. Cook about 3-4 minutes longer.  Add the beans and tomato sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes.  Serve with whatever toppings you like.
