    Turkey Filling

    Taco Shells and Garnishes

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large skillet.
    2. 2
      Saute the onion and garlic over medium heat for 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the ground turkey and cook, stirring and breaking up the clumps of meat, until the meat has lost its pink color, about 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the cumin and cook for 1 minute.
    5. 5
      Add the tomato sauce and water and simmer, partially covered, over low heat for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Raise the heat to medium, uncover the skillet, and simmer for 5 minutes more, or until mixture is quite thick but not dry.
    7. 7
      Stir in the crushed red pepper and cilantro and add salt to taste.
    8. 8
      While turkey mixture is cooking, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and arrange taco shells on a baking sheet.
    9. 9
      Prepare grated cheese, lettuce, scallions, and olives and put them into individual bowls.
    10. 10
      When turkey mixture is almost done, heat taco shells in preheated oven for 5 minutes or so.
    11. 11
      When turkey mixture and taco shells are done, each person can spoon some turkey mixture into the bottom of the half-moon-shaped taco shells and add toppings of choice.
    12. 12
      Finish with a sprinkle of hot sauce, taco sauce or salsa.
    13. 13
      Note: Turkey filling can be made ahead and will keep in the refrigerator for a few days.

      These tacos were so tasty, I actually prefer them to the beef ones. I used chicken broth instead of water because I read a similar recipe online that used it. I also added garlic powder. I topped with gr.onion olives, avocado, and lett, tom, and cheese. Wonderful!

      I didn't use olives and substituted white onions for the toppings, everyone used their favorite hot sauce. This is an excellent filling for tacos.I wouldn't change a thing for the filling.
