Mexican Ground Turkey Skillet Recipe

This is one of my favorite easy recipes and I make it ALL the time – it’s tacos without the shell or the fat. Even better with a dollop of sour cream on top!

How often do you buy ground turkey with the intention of making turkey burgers? Of course, turkey burgers are great and all, but you can do SO much more with ground turkey!

Unless you are eating 95% lean ground beef, there is so much less saturated fat in ground turkey than beef. You want saturated fat to make up only 10% of your caloric intake. Most of the time your ground turkey will contain half as much saturated fat as ground beef.

You would think being a butcher’s daughter I would be all about meat. Maybe it’s from growing up eating meat almost every day that I am so turned off by it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against beef altogether – I make beef for my family, I just don’t eat it myself. But this ground turkey skillet recipe is one meal that my family and I can agree on and we all enjoy it. It’s basically just a healthier version of unstuffed tacos.
