Tacos can be made healthy. There's more than one way to make one, and these ground turkey tacos are healthier than most. Our turkey taco recipe is perfect for anyone who's trying to reduce the amount of saturated fat in their diet but doesn't want to compromise on flavor.

Aside from being nutritious — ground turkey tacos have about two-thirds of the calories compared to making the same recipe with ground beef — turkey tacos are also easy to make. You can take your time and still spend only 30 minutes on it. Faster ones take half the time. Not bad for a delicious dish, isn't it?



What vegetables go great with this turkey taco recipe?

You can use any vegetables of your choice with this ground turkey taco recipe. Some good ones include lettuce, tomato, scallions, cilantro, or any salad leaves. You can also serve it with classic Mexican dips such as guacamole, sour cream, salsa, or pico de gallo.

What kind of tortilla is best with ground turkey tacos?

Most people buy their tortillas from the store if they're making tacos. However, if you have time to cook the filling, you have time to make the tortillas from scratch. All you need is a traditional cast iron tortilla press. Alternatively, you can also just use a cast iron skillet in cooking it. With only four ingredients (flour, water, oil, and salt), our tortilla recipe is easy to follow.

While store-bought tortillas are fine, homemade tortillas are a world away from the plastic packaged version and will make your turkey tacos stand out. You can make a batch, put them in the freezer, and just reheat when needed.

The Last Word on Making Turkey Taco

Turkey taco is a great Mexican-inspired dish that is healthy and easy to make. As it takes only a half-hour (or less!) to prepare, it can even be a good weeknight meal. Ground turkey is leaner and has less fat content than beef and other meats so you can enjoy the flavor without worrying about your health.

If you opt to skip on meats altogether, you can also make your taco vegan or vegetarian. Our tofu tacos and mushroom tacos are good sources of protein without animal products. Seafood tacos are another option for healthier meals without meat. We have an easy tuna taco recipe, delicious shrimp tacos, as well as blackened salmon tacos.

Whichever kind of taco you choose to serve, we know you and your family and friends will love it. Have fun creating these nutritious Mexican dishes!
