Taco Meat #Recipe

Yesterday, I made a huge pot of Cooked Ground Turkey to put in the freezer for easy slow cooker meals later. By huge, I mean over 12 lbs of ground turkey.  As long as I’m cooking ground meat anyway, it is the perfect time to make taco meat with ground turkey.

I made a large batch of taco meat so we could have left-overs.  With teenage boys, left-overs are more rare than Sasquatch sightings. This recipe could easily be divided if you’re not trying to feed teenagers or gorillas. (I realize gorillas are mainly vegetarian.  It was a joke.  LOL)

Whenever I can, I try to make extra to freeze.  This taco meat freezes really well for a super easy meal on another day.  I usually put the frozen taco meat into a pot with a bit of water (roughly about 1/8 cup of water) to gently warm it.  Microwaves would work as well, but I am not a huge fan of microwaved meat.  That’s just my personal preference.

I like the versatility of taco meat.  Taco meat can be served with hard taco shells, soft tortillas, tostada shells, over nachos, in a baked potato, in a taco salad, or countless other dishes.   Any way you choose to serve it, it will be delicious.

Turkey Taco Meat

Turkey Taco Meat

Ingredients

  • 1/4-1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Frozen Diced Onions & Bell Peppers (or desired amount)
  • Cajun Seasoning Blend (I use Tony Chachere's)
  • 3.5 lbs Ground Turkey (or your favorite ground meat)
  • 1 TBSP Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin Seed
  • Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • Canned green chiles (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a pot large enough to hold all of your ingredients. My mother frequently goes through 3 or more pots as she adds ingredients.
  • Add onions & bell peppers to the heated oil.
  • Season the onions and bell pepper with about 1/2 tsp of Cajun Seasoning.
  • Stir occasionally to prevent burning & sticking.
  • Once the onions are translucent and wilted, add your ground meat.
  • Season the ground meat with about 1 tsp of Cajun Seasoning, all the Chili Powder, & the Cumin.
  • You may add Cayenne Pepper for extra heat, if you wish.
  • Stir occasionally to prevent burning until the meat is nice and browned.
  • Adjust the seasoning to your liking. I added another 1 tsp of Cajun Seasoning.
  • Serve

Scoop some taco meat into a hard taco shell or soft tortilla and add your favorite toppings.  I love lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole or avocado, salsa, and shredded cheese.  Taco meat is also delicious topping a taco salad or stuffed into a baked potato.  Yum!
