Turkey Tacos

 
These tacos came out AMAZING!!!! Homemade Tacos are one of the easiest things to make, and I actually don't put salt in ours because we're watching our salt intake. Natural seasonings is all you need.
 
The kids are not too into eating tacos like this, so I made theirs quesadilla style with a little cheese.
 
For those of you wondering about these tortillas I used... I am in love!!!! Mission makes these wheat tortillas that are healthier than regular tortillas and I personally like these tortillas better than regular ones. These are the black bean tortillas. There are also flaxseed ones that is pretty good too. I prefer the black bean ones though.
 
So to make homemade tacos, instead of using packaged seasoning that's loaded with sodium, here's what you want to do....
 
 
Ingredients:
1 lb turkey cut into slices (you can use chicken as well)
4 tbs. chili powder
2 tbs. cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. cayenne
1/4 cup water
Tortillas of your choice
 
 
Directions:
In a large skillet (lightly sprayed with cooking spray) over medium heat, add chicken. Saute in pan until cooked through, approximately 10 minutes. Drain chicken and return to pan.  Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook an additional 5 minutes.
 
Serve warm on tortillas and toppings of your choice. Since we're eating healthy, there was no cheese on ours, just some cilantro and tomatoes. Some fresh avocado or pico de gallo would be absolutely amazing on these....
