Taco Tapas for Cinco de Mayo

May 2, 2013

Tacos are a must-have at any Cinco de Mayo fiesta.  These are made on the lighter side with ground turkey instead of beef or pork.  Serve these tacos with margaritas, rice, and beans.

Taco Tapas


1 pound of lean ground turkey (or your preferred meat alternative)
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 whole wheat crunchy taco shells
1 cup salsa
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup light sour cream (optional)
1 cup low-fat shredded cheese (optional)


Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and put over medium heat. Place protein of choice in pan. Add all the other ingredients, sauté to warm and combine flavors. Stir and break up the meat with a wooden spoon or spatula, until the meat is browned. Set aside.

Meanwhile, bake the tortilla shells as directed in the oven

To serve, put the meat, tortillas and toppings on the table and pass the plates. Everyone can enjoy assembling his or her own taco.
