Ready to Serve Taco Meat

1 lb. ground turkey (browned)
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. onion salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. oregano

Add all the spices to a container with a lid and shake well. Add this mixture to a pan with the browned ground turkey and 3/4 cup water; stir to combine and allow this to cook until most of the juice has been soaked up by the meat. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Taco meat has so many uses! Try on top of a salad or in tortilla wraps (*which is what we did…) Add toppings such as fresh tomatoes, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese (*or the Mexican mix cheese that can be found at your local grocery store). For a salad, use a half a head of lettuce and cut into shreds, top with taco meat (above), black (or refried) beans, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!

*Johnna’s tip, tip: And for those Vegetarians out there, try this recipe with the MorningStar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles…taste just as good!
