Spicy Ground Turkey Tacos


  • Pico De Gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Avocados
  • Black Beans etc


You will start by searing the Ground Turkey in a non stick frying pan, then once it has lightly browned.

You will want to add in some poultry seasoning, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper. 

Then lastly 3 tbsp of Jalapeno Juice from either the can of the Jalapenos or jar. This adds an extra hint of spice and makes the meat very juicy!


Basically all you are doing is sauteing the Ground Turkey in a non stick pan along with the taco seasoning till browned.

Then simply assort the Turkey meat into warmed taco shells.

Top with cheddar cheese of your liking and your favorite tomato salsa.

However most of the spice for these tacos comes for the “Jalepeno Juice” that you will want to add to the Turkey meat. Trust me, it is a game changer and really spices this recipe up. 

  1. Shred the cheese, and remove some juice from the Jalapeno jar on hand.
  2. Next, simply saute the ground turkey meat along with the spices and jalapeno juice.
  3. Then the tacos are ready to be put together, serve with some fresh avocado slices.
