Let’s Make It!

  • Start by gathering all the necessary ingredients: For the turkey filling:
  • 500g lean turkey mince
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste For the salsa:
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • Bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt to taste For serving:
  • 8 small tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the onion and garlic; sauté until soft.
  • Ratchet up the heat to high and throw in the turkey mince. Cook until the turkey is browned and cooked through, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks.
  • Stir in the ground spices. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from heat.
  • While the turkey reposes, make the salsa. Combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt in a bowl.
  • Warm up the tortillas in a dry pan over medium heat or directly over the flame if you have a gas stove.
  • Put it all together: lay a tortilla flat, spoon over some turkey filling, add a generous spoonful of salsa, sprinkle over some cheese, dollop on some sour cream if desired, and garnish with fresh cilantro.
  • Repeat for the remaining tortillas. There you go – your scrumptious and speedy Turkey Tacos, ready to be devoured!
