I am just slaying this cooking thing!!  These Turkey Tacos are probably the best meal I’ve made so far if I do say so myself.  They had so much flavor and they were super quick to make.

This morning my mom left for Florida so when I woke up I went into survival mode. (Yes, I am almost 20 years old and still panic when I have to be home alone.  That’s what moving to a new place will do to ya!)  Anyways, we had some ground turkey in the fridge so that’s where this idea came from.

I low key believe that mangoes are the greatest foods to ever grace this earth.  If they were in season all year long, I would eat them every day.  They’re at their peak right now though, so if you love mangoes like me GO TO THE GROCERY STORE!  They’re so juicy and good!  Don’t miss the opportunity.  My mom sent me to the store yesterday to stock up for when she leaves and I bought 5 mangoes and 6 avocados.  I can’t believe I get this excited over food now.

Anywho, let’s cut to the chase.

What you need:

1 package ground turkey (we buy it lean)

1 onion

1 avocado

1 large tomato (or a couple small ones, whatever your heart desires 🙂 )

Romaine hearts

2 limes

Coconut oil


Cayenne pepper

The process:

Start by chopping up the onion.  Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to a large frying pan at high heat.  Add onions, and brown for about 1 minute.  Add in turkey.  Start browning, and turn to medium heat.  Pour in about 1/2 tablespoon of cumin (be sure to spread it evenly!) and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper.  Squeeze juice of 1 lime over pan, and salt and pepper. Mix and brown until turkey is fully cooked.

Wash your romaine hearts.  However many tacos you’re making, peel off that many leaves,  (Check the leaves for holes, too.) and then pat leaves dry with paper towel.  Lay flat on plate.  Chop up avocados and tomatoes.

Add cooked meat to the taco leaf.  Put veggies on top, then squeeze lime juice over.  Salt and pepper to finish it off.

That’s it!

This was so easy. The turkey was screeeeaming with flavor, too!  I seriously cannot wait for someone else to try this recipe and let me know what they think.  The key is the coconut oil! It brings out so much more flavor to whatever you cook in it.  Like the Chicken Soup I made yesterday.

Hope everyone’s week is going well. Cheers!
