Reader Recipe #1: Ground Turkey & Veggie Tacos

My sister, Tiffany, recently requested a grocery list of various items to purchase and she immediately went home and began cooking! I love leaving the grocery store and feeling inspired to make a new or tried and true tasty dish! Her meal for the night was Ground Turkey & Veggie Tacos

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • cloves garlic finely chopped 
    (can use garlic in squeezable bottle 2 TSP)
  • 1/3 or 1/4 cup Chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped portobello mushrooms 
  • Favorite Taco seasoning packet
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
  • 2-3 TSP Sour Cream
  • 2-3 TSP of fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Avocado
  • Favorite Shredded cheese 
  • Lettuce
  • Flour or Corn torillas

In a pan, brown your ground turkey, when ground turkey is almost brown add your onions and garlic.  Once the onions and garlic softens add the portobello mushrooms. Then add your taco seasoning pack; follow directions as on packet.  Let simmer.
Separately heat your favorite black beans. Along with warming your tortillas (I prefer warming them in a skillet for a slight crisp).
In a small bowl combine sour cream, garlic and cilantro. Can add salt and pepper to your liking (not needed). Set aside until you're ready to top your tacos.
When ready to serve top your meat mixture with cheese, black beans, tomatoes, dollop of the cilantro sour cream, avocado and lettuce. You can eat the black beans and avocado separately.
Add or omit based on your taste buds!
Enjoy & happy eating from my sister, Tiffany!
