Ground Turkey

  • 3 lbs Ground Turkey
  • 1 Tbsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Chili powder

  • 1 Packet Sazon Spanish seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Water

Topping Tacos (Assorted toppings of choice. We chose the following.)

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Sliced black olives
  • Sliced or mashed avocado
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Taco sauce
  • Taco shells
  • Lowcarb tortillas


  1. Preheat a large skillet on medium-high heat.
  2. Add in ground turkey. Chop and break up ground turkey, season with garlic, salt, pepper, sazon, chili powder, and paprika, mix well. Stirring occasionally, cook until browned.

  3. Add in water, lowering heat to a simmer. Stir occasionally until water evaporates and meat thickens slightly with a "sauce" look.
  4. Assemble tacos adding ground meat to shells and tortillas topping with your choice of toppings.
  5. Make a double layer taco by adding shredded cheese to a tortilla and placing in microwave for 20 seconds to melt. Add a hard taco shell to one half of tortilla folding other half over shell. Fill with your choice of toppings.
