Caroline’s Turkey Tacos


This recipe is inspired by my friend Caroline’s recipe.
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 can petit diced tomatoes
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 2-3 tablespoons taco seasoning (I like Lawry’s)
  • 2 cups chopped swiss chard
  • 1 package hard taco shells
  • Guacamole, shredded cheese, and diced scallions for serving


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 or follow the directions on the package of taco shells.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add some oil to coat the bottom of the the pan.
  3. Add diced onion and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.
  4. Add the ground turkey to the skillet. Use a large wooden spoon or spatula to break it up into small bits. Cook until browned.
  5. Add the petite diced tomatoes and taco seasoning and cook, uncovered for about 10 minutes.
  6. Add the Swiss chard and mix through until wilted.
  7. Stuff the taco shells and bake 3 minutes or according to the directions on the package of taco shells.
