Fast and easy, delicious fish tacos -- simply the best! When I have extra time, I like to add just a little cilantro, red onion, tomato, and avocado on top of mine with the lettuce, tomato, and crema!

Ground Turkey Taco Meat

Rating: Unrated
This recipe has fewer calories because of the ground turkey and amazing flavor! It is a little spicy, but our family enjoys it this way. Because it has so much flavor, you cannot even tell it's not ground beef. It tastes great as a topping on baked potatoes as well as tacos. Enjoy!

Sarah's Easy Shredded Chicken Taco Filling

Rating: Unrated
I put this together one day, wanting tacos, but I did not want ground beef. It is fast to make, as no slow cooker is needed. Serve warmed as a substitute for ground beef in tacos, and serve in a taco shell, with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, or other favorite toppings.

Chicken Wonton Tacos

Rating: Unrated
Light and tasty, these make a great appetizer or a quick and easy main dish! Kids love them! Finally a dish that makes use of ground chicken but not so far-fetched. I bake the wonton wrappers to save time and it eliminates most of the fat. Although time-consuming, you can fry wrappers in sesame or olive oil for the extra flaky shells, folded in a triangle for about 1 minute on each side. I loved the ones at Applebee's® and decided to attempt a home version. I was extremely pleased with the healthier version! Top tacos with cilantro, red onion, or sweet onion, if desired. Serve lime wedges on the side.

Air Fryer Oven Taco Shells

I do not care for the premade taco shells sold at the supermarket. So I developed this recipe in my Cuisinart® Air Fryer Oven. These taco shells are crispy, golden brown, and ready to be stuffed with your favorite fillings. The best part is they are oil free and greaseless.
