fresh cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, etc. as desired for serving
Cook ground turkey and onion in a large skillet over medium heat until browned.
Stir in tomato paste, garlic, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, paprika and pepper and cook until combined.
Add a little water at a time, stirring until combined. The combination of the tomato paste and the water will make the taco mixture a little saucy which we love. Add only as much water as you want until your desired consistency is reached.
Serve with tortillas, lettuce, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, and any other toppings you enjoy!
*Nutrition information includes tortillas, cheese, lettuce and salsa but no other optional toppings.Substitutions:
You can swap the turkey in this recipe for ground chicken, pork or beef.
Feel free to omit or adjust any of the seasonings in this recipe to your tastes -- bump up the spice or play around with it if you like! Just keep in mind all changes will affect the flavor in the end.
Brown sugar: you do not have to use sugar but I highly recommend it as it balances out the bitterness of the tomato paste. You can use another sweetener if you prefer.
