Turkey Taco Boats

My family fell in love with this recipe this summer when my sister in law made these at our family reunion.  This is a healthier (and in my opinion, more delicious) option to regular ground beef tacos. You guys, seriously... I make this at least three or four times a month, it's one of our favorites!  They get devoured every time.  The recipe is from Skinny Taste. I revised it a bit simply because I'm lazy and don't feel like cutting green peppers and onions. I've actually never added green peppers, but sometimes add onions, or if I'm lazy will just add onion powder.  I also buy turkey in 2 lb. containers, so I just went ahead and did a new recipe using four pounds of turkey, and use just a little less water.  I also forego a tortilla and use romaine hearts to hold my taco.  My daughter even does it! I don't even miss the taco shell! You want to add this to your meal rotation - you won't be disappointed. Enjoy! 

Turkey Taco Recipe
Adapted from Skinny Taste

lbs. lean ground turkey
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. onion powder (or 1 small onion diced)
1 c. water
8 oz. tomato sauce

1.  Brown turkey in large skillet until no longer pink.  
2. Add seasonings, water, and tomato sauce. Mix well. 
3. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes.  
4. Serve in a lettuce wrap, tortilla, or taco shell. 

How I assemble my taco boats:


  1. Looks good. Will have to try. I need to change up our taco routine. Do you ever put beans in withe meat?
    Did you mean one pound of meat, or you really cook 4 lb at once?

    1. It's so good!!! MK and Jeremy made this at the reunion. Thanks for catching my error! I cook 2 lbs. at a time. But, I have doubled it when I wanted leftovers, and I think that's why I accidentally put 4! Two pounds only leaves enough for one person to have some the next day for lunch.
