Clean Eating Mexican Taco Meat

Clean Eating Mexican Taco Meat
Whoever thought it was possible to limit tacos to Tuesday clearly never tried them stuffed with incredibly tasty clean eating Mexican taco meat!
I don’t think I’ve ever met a person that didn’t love tacos and the great thing with tacos is you can make them as healthy as you’d like. I typically use lean ground turkey or chicken for my taco meat and PERDUE® FIT & EASY® Fresh Ground Turkey or Chicken Breast is my meat of choice. A lot of chicken companies cut corners by feeding their chickens all sorts of animal by-products. But PERDUE® chickens are always fed a 100% vegetarian diet and they never use added hormones or steroids. It’s quality stuff, people! ­čÖé
This taco meat is very kid-friendly- however, if your kiddos or you are sensitive to extra spice, leave out one or both of the peppers, cut the chili powder down to 1 teaspoon and use more tomato sauce than salsa. This recipe is super versatile, so just adjust according to your family’s preference.

  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 jalape├▒o peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound PERDUE® FIT & EASY® Fresh Ground Turkey or Chicken Breast
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 cup healthy homemade tomato sauce or salsa (or a combination of the two)
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste (no salt added)
  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion and jalape├▒os; cook, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes and until onions are soft.
  3. Add garlic; cook, stirring frequently for 1 minute. Transfer onion mixture to a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Add turkey to the same skillet; cook, over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to break up turkey, for 8 to 10 minutes and until turkey is no longer pink.
  5. Season with chili powder, cumin and garlic salt.
  6. Add onion mixture, tomato sauce or salsa (or a combination of the two) and tomato paste. Mix well. Reduce heat to medium-low, stirring frequently for about 8 minutes and until mixture thickens.
