Turkey Tacos with Sliced Jalapeno Peppers

Most of you know my love for ground turkey by now. I'm in LOVE with turkey burgers (see one of my favorite turkey burger recipes) and we cook with turkey constantly. As much as we both love beef, turkey is a lower calorie option that helps to keep the weight down. So! Bring on the Turkey Tacos. I can't say enough good things about turkey tacos. They're healthy, low-calorie, inexpensive to make, super quick and easy to prepare, and flat out delicious. Seriously, you can have this recipe done in about 20 minutes or less.

Turkey Tacos with Sliced Jalapeno Peppers - Recipe

Turkey Tacos with Sliced Jalapeno Peppers - Recipe


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 12 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning - Try this homemade taco seasoning
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 corn tortillas, lightly toasted
  • Fixings for toppings – I used a bit of crema (sour cream), Cojita cheese, picante sauce, roasted jalapeno peppers, diced avocado and chopped cilantro

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat a large pan to medium heat. Add olive oil and swirl.
  2. Add onion, jalapeno pepper and ground turkey. Cook it all together about 8 minutes, or until the turkey is nearly cooked through.
  3. Add taco seasoning and water. Stir. Reduce heat and allow to simmer about 10 minutes, until most of the moisture reduces and the flavorings thicken up. Leave just a bit of the liquid in the pan to keep the turkey nice and juicy and moist.
  4. Serve onto toasted tortillas and top with your favorite fixings!
