Turkey Tacos! The Perfect Super Bowl Party Grub!

No one wants to slave in the kitchen during Super Bowl. This recipe will have you in and out of the kitchen in no time! It’s easy to prepare, healthy and full of flavour!  It also makes the perfect weeknight meal when you’re strapped for time! I’m a big fan of blue corn tacos, as they contain the same antioxidants found in blueberries and blackberries! Plus they contain more protein, zinc and selenium then yellow corn. I’ve included a few topping suggestions below, but feel free to use whatever toppings you like! Get creative!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 pack simply organic taco seasoning
  • Half an onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • blue corn taco shells
Suggested Toppings:
  • Tomatoes
  • Chopped Spinach
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Guacamole
  • Salsa
  • Sunflower Sprouts
  • Black Beans
  • Hummus
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
Directions:

Heat olive oil over medium heat in sauté pan. Add ground turkey and brown for 7-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Add onion and garlic, stir. Mix simply organic taco seasoning with water and stir until well combined. Add to turkey and stir well. Turn heat to medium-low, cover turkey with lid and cook for approximately 12-15 minutes, until turkey is fully cooked. Meanwhile, chop and prepare your toppings.

Now the easy part! Fill your taco shells with your favourite toppings, add your turkey, eat, enjoy, get messy and enjoy the game!
