Best Turkey Tacos EVER

This is my recipe for turkey tacos. I came up with it because I was tired of buying those little packages filled with msg and other junk! Plus, it really is just a few simple ingredients.

Start with all white ground turkey meat-it tastes better than if it is mixed with dark. It will say all white on the package or ask the butcher.
Cook in a saute pan with a little olive oil, add salt and pepper while it is cooking.

After the meat is completely cooked add cumin, paprika, mexican chili powder, garlic salt and more salt and pepper. I like to add by the palmful-it is really a smell thing. It all has to balance. So add a tsp at a time until you get the "smell" you want. Odd but it really works. If you do not like spicy foods, use a mild chili powder.

Stir that very well, and then add one 14.5 oz can of Hunts fire roasted diced tomatoes. If you have a cup or so of roasted yellow onions, add those too. They add great flavor. If you don't know how to roast an onion-take one, cut in quarters, rub w some olive oil, 425 oven, roast until browned. easy. Add tons of flavor to this dish. My son loves roasted onions.

Cook this together until the liquid from the can of tomatoes starts to cook down.

Serve as you choose-on a salad, as nachos or as tacos with a little mexican cheese, iceberg lettuce, and sour cream. YUM!
