  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • Taco seasoning packet or make your own (recipe below)
  • Salad greens and toppings of your choice (tomatoes, avocado, cheese, sour cream, salsa, black beans, corn...whatever)
  • Taco Seasoning:
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground red pepper
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Place ground turkey in the bottom of your slow cooker. (I put mine in totally frozen)

  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 2-5 hours (depending on if it’s frozen, how big your slow cooker is, how fast your slow cooker cooks etc.)

  3. Stir to break up meat and cook any extra time that is needed. Drain off any grease.

  4. Stir in the taco seasoning ingredients or about half a packet (or more if you like it spicy).

  5. Let the seasonings cook with the meat for a a bit until it tastes incorporated and yummy.

  6. Serve meat over salad greens and add desired toppings. (You could also serve this in regular tacos as well)
