Chile Lime Turkey Tacos

  • Author: Kelsey Nixon
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


One of my favorite recipes made primarily with ingredients you can easily pick up from Trader Joes. 


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Chile Lime Seasoning
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 12 (5-inch) corn tortillas


  • Thinly sliced cabbage
  • Fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 12 avocados, diced
  • 1 cup shredded or crumbled cheese (I like cotija)
  • Sour cream, for garnish


  1. Add the oil to a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onions, garlic, and seasoning cooking until tender, about 8 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the tomatoes and chiles and bring to a simmer to thicken. Stir in the turkey and cook until the turkey is cooked through and the mixture has thickened, but isn’t dry, about 8-10 minutes. Stir in cilantro and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Put the toppings and meat in individual bowls and serve with the corn tortillas on a platter.
