These tacos taste nothing like the Mexican-style tacos but they are, by far, mine and my husband's favorite. Out of everything I make for him, this is his number one!!!

Quick easy and delicious - perfect for a weeknight meal! I did use minced garlic vs. garlic powder and decided to make homemade guacamole vs. just mashing the avocados. I used "Pico de Gallo" by Rachel Love from this site and reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. Great recipe and while I'm used to "Mexican-style" tacos these were a really nice change. Thanks for a great recipe Chefbound! Read More

We eat at least one version of this weekly. One of the few meals I don't get complaints from the kids. Instead shouts of "Yea! taco night." Read More

Very simple but sometimes the most simple ingredients combined together turn out the best foods. I made my own pico de gallo. I ate my dinner early because I had to work and I really enjoyed it. The only change I made was used fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I think me making homemade pico de gallo was what made it so good. Simple and delicious! Read More

This was great! I made a few adjustments though. I put the sour cream and avocado on the side. I stirred in some fat-free vegetarian re fried beans to the turkey for extra flavor. Also added black olives as an optional side. Hubby loved it and had 4 huge tacos full! Read More

These were perfect for what I needed tonight. While I typically prefer a more seasoned and spicy taco my surprise guests like it way more mild. I was already planning on turkey tacos "my way" but had to change my plans quickly. So I put away the hot peppers and tried this recipe. I tried one to make sure I thought everyone would be happy. In the end those of us who like spicy will be able to add hot sauce and everyone at the table is happy! Read More

I basically used this receipt as a guide so my hubby could get the ingredients from the store. I added tons of cumin. After the meat browned I added fresh lemon juice and fresh cilantro chopped. Read More
