Super Simple Turkey Tacos

Super Simple Turkey Tacois

Turkey tacos are one of my super simple stand-by recipes. Fire roasted canned tomatoes, chopped onion and cumin couldn’t be an easier seasoning for ground turkey or beef. Add raisins for a sweet contrast to the spice – like in my recipe for Raisin Serrano Quesadillas – and raisins make a jazzier taco too. Offer shredded cheddar and lettuce to finish the tacos. Now that’s simple – just 6 main ingredients and 15 minutes till dinner! And tacos happen to be one of the hottest trends in 2015, according to a Restaurant News article that flashed by my computer as I wrote this post.
