A Lighter Journey

On a quest to lighten our loads and brighten our homes

A lighter version of…TACOS!

on January 18, 2012

If you’re looking for a lighter and fresh-tasting taco meat recipe, look no further!  Add a little cayenne if you like ’em hot!  Inspired by Grandma Ellie (my husband’s grandmother).


1lb ground turkey

1 7oz can chopped green chilis

1 small onion (finely chopped)

1T  cumin

1T  Worcestershire sauce

1/2 t  garlic powder

Cayenne pepper (optional)

1 can (or 1 cup) cooked black beans (drained)

Extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste

Drizzle a little olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.  Saute onion for 2-3 minutes until soft and translucent.  Add turkey meat, chilis, and spices and cook thoroughly.  Once the meat is cooked, add beans and cook 5 more minutes (or until beans are heated through).  Add salt and pepper as needed. Serve with taco shells and your favorite taco fixings.  Enjoy!
