Turkey Taco Skillet

6 January, 2018

My wife and I love Mexican food.  It’s comforting and delicious and perfect for cold winter nights like we’re having now.  This staple meal has quickly become one of my favorites, not only because it’s so easy to prepare, but because it’s so delicious!

What you need:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tbl chili powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 can refried beans or black beans
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup salsa, your choice
  • 1 tbl lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend

In a large skillet, cook turkey and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.  Add spices and 3/4 cup water and bell peppers, cover and let simmer until liquid reduces and peppers become soft. Stir in the salsa, beans, cilantro and lime juice and cook until heated through.

Sprinkle with cheese and cover until the cheese melts, then serve with additional cilantro for a garnish.  Enjoy!
