All-american ground turkey

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 tablespoons Peanut or olive oil
2 larges Onions; finely chopped
2 Garlic cloves; pressed or minced (up to 4)
2½ pounds Ground turkey
1¼ cup Fresh corn kernels (about 2 medium ears)
Fresh Tomato Salsa or
2 cups Chopped tomatoes
4 cups Shredded lettuce Salsa Verde
⅔ cup Dry white wine
¾ teaspoon Salt
18 Corn tortillas; warmed or crisped before serving OR
12 Flour tortillas; warmed or crisped before serving
3 cups Shredded cheese
2 cups Sour cream


1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and stir until the onions are wilted, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, stirring occasionally to break up any chunks, until browned thoroughly, about 10 minutes. Add the corn, 3 to 6 tablespoons of the Fresh Tomato Salsa or Salsa Verde, the wine and salt. Cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes

2. To assemble, spread about ⅓ cup of the turkey filling in the middle of a tortilla. Top with some of the remaining salsa, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, cheese and sour cream. Fold and serve.

TIPS *You can also make these tacos with leftover holiday turkey. Use about 6 cups diced roasted turkey meat and add a little extra wine for more moisture. *Turkey tends to dry out easily, so when reheating this filling, add a little more wine or some water.
