Along with ground turkey and tortillas (flour, don’t hate), I also got a blend of shredded white and yellow cheddar cheese, black beans (low sodium), pepperoncinis, yellow tomatoes, yellow peaches and limes. Can you guess what I did with those last four items? Damn right I made my own salsa! Sweet and spicy!
These tacos are easy and delicious and will help convince your friends that you know what you’re doing in the kitchen.
Ingredients (4-5 servings)
* 1 pound ground turkey
* 1/2 onion chopped
* 2 cloves garlic chopped
* 1 1/2 peaches chopped
* 1/2 cup pepperoncinis chopped
* 3 tomatoes chopped
* 1 can black beans
* shredded cheese (as much as you want)
* hot sauce (Tapatio for me)
For ground turkey: Heat pan on medium heat for a few minutes to let it get hot. Add chopped onions and garlic, let them cook for 2 minutes or so, then add ground turkey. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce if you are so inclined! Stir and simmer for a total of 15 minutes.
For salsa: Mix chopped tomatoes, peaches and pepperoncinis in a bowl with fresh squeezed lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. I could have added cilantro to this too, but I forgot to buy some!
I hope you enjoy my taco recipe and feel free to throw back a couple of cervezas while you’re at it!
