Turkey Mince Tacos

If you haven’t experimented with turkey mince tacos yet, it serves as an excellent substitute for beef mince. Whether you seek a leaner option with health advantages or simply crave a change, turkey mince fits the bill. With its gentle, delightful taste, it perfectly complements taco fillings. Our Turkey Mince Tacos recipe captures the essence of flavour and freshness, making it a convenient go-to meal for busy weeknights.

For this turkey mince tacos recipe, we fry the mince with our Gran Luchito Smoky Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix, but you could also use our Gran Luchito Garlic & Guajillo Fajita & Taco Mix which has a milder flavour. After simmering the turkey mince with orange juice and tamari, the mince is finished off with a squeeze of lime and coriander for freshness. It then gets wrapped up in our Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps, with slices of avocado, fresh cabbage for crunch and dollops of Gran Luchito Tomatillo Salsa.

We tried this recipe the other night. The kids liked it with cheese on top and as I didn’t have the chipotle salsa, I used green and it was amazing too.
