A combination of lean ground beef and ultra-lean ground turkey breast makes a less-greasy filling. Bypass taco-seasoning packets in favor of making your own full-flavored filling.
|Prep Time:||30 minutes|
|Ready in:||30 minutes|
|Yield:||6 servings, about 1/2 cup each|
|Ease of Prep:||Easy|
|8 ounces 93%-lean ground beef|
|8 ounces 99%-lean ground turkey breast|
|1/2 cup chopped onion|
|1 10-ounce can diced tomatoes with green chiles , preferably Rotel brand (see Tip), or 1 1/4 cups petite-diced tomatoes|
|1/2 teaspoon ground cumin|
|1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile or 1 teaspoon chili powder|
|1/2 teaspoon dried oregano|
- Place beef, turkey and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain off fat. Wipe out the pan. Return the meat to the pan and add tomatoes, cumin, ground chipotle (or chili powder) and oregano. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 3 to 6 minutes.
Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Reheat just before serving.
Tip: Look for Rotel brand diced tomatoes with green chiles-original or mild, depending on your spice preference-and set the heat level with either ground chipotle chile (adds smoky heat) or chili powder (adds rich chili taste without extra spice).
