Turkey Street Tacos with Cilantro Cream Sauce

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Cilantro Cream Sauce:
  • 3/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonaise
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1 or 2 Handfuls Fresh Cilantro Leaves (make with one handful, taste, then add second if desired. I like lots!)
  • 2 tsp Lime Juice, fresh
  • Pinch Kosher Salt
  • Pinch Pepper
  • Taco Meat Mixture:
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1 Pound Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 Clove Garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Tomato Paste
  • Fixings:
  • 1 pkg Small flour taco shells, street taco size
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, diced


Cilantro Cream Sauce:

Add all ingredients to a mini food processor (or use a full sized one if that's what you have) and blend very well. Taste and adjust amount of cilantro and/or salt to your liking. I like a strong cilantro flavor, and usually know it's ready when the sauce turns a pale tint of green.

Taco Meat Mixture:
Heat a skillet to med high and add the olive oil. When it starts to shimmer, add the diced onion. Stir occasionally, until softened.

Add the ground turkey, breaking it up as you cook it.

Add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well.

Cook until the meat is cooked through, and add the tomato paste. Cook it just a couple minutes longer to heat the tomato paste through.

Assemble your tacos with the cheese, then meat, diced tomatoes, and drizzle on some of the Cilantro Cream Sauce. Enjoy!
