I Feel Like Tacos Tonight.......

Sorry for the delay and I promise these tacos are awesome! Now just so you know I do not measure things - I do it to taste. I will put some measurements down but before you serve make sure to taste it.

Here is a picture of it in the pan - not real exciting but they were so good I never got a picture of them in the shell and served.

Taco Surprise
1 or 2 TBS - Olive oil
1/4 c - onion
1 TBS - minced garlic
1 # - lean ground turkey
1 tsp - cumin
1 tsp - chili powder
1 tsp - oregeno
1 tsp - onion powder
1 tsp - garlic salt (I like the grinder)
1/2 c - tomato sauce
1/2 c - 98% ff chicken broth
1/4 or 1/2 c - chopped pineapple
Saute onion, garlic in the olive oil. Add turkey brown slightly and than add the seasonings, the tomato sauce and the chicken broth let simmer until the turkey is completly cooked than add pineapple and let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.

I served mine on white corn tortillas, Taryn at The Colorado Desert has a Whole wheat Tortillia recipe if you like. These are pretty healthy so whole wheat would be a good option. Also I had the usual taco toppings, lettuce, cheese, jalepenos, tomatos and guac. My guac was made fresh - and it was AWESOME!!

I also thought that crab or shrimp would be amazing with these. Hope you enjoy them! Let me know what you think.


  1. Thanks for the great recipe...I am going to make it!
    Having pineapple in the tacos really appeals to me...YUMMMY!


  2. Yum! It doesn't look too spicy either. I will keep this in mind when we are looking for something Mexican and new.

    Thanks for the link. = )
