Tasty Turkey Tacos

I'm still making some light and tasty meals to go hand in hand with my strenuous workouts.  These Tasty Turkey Taco's (can you say that 5 x's fast?!) get a real boost with the zucchini for added texture.

Ground turkey meat is an excellent choice for spice loaded dishes.  Since turkey can be somewhat bland it holds up well to a lot of spice combinations.

I cannot stop sautéing onions, garlic and bell pepper.  I usually add that combination to my meatloafs and meatballs.   

The zucchini was added because I forgot I had purchased them and didn't want them to go bad.  However this paired well with the turkey.

To round out my meal I added some black beans.  Maybe more dishes like this can keep me out of the Chipotle line.

Tasty Turkey Tacos
1 pkg ground turkey
1 med onion diced
1 green bell pepper
1 med zucchini chopped 
1 heaping tablespoon of crushed garlic
1 Sazon packet
1 tsp cumin 
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1/4 cup Olive oil more or less
Corn or flour tortillas 
Place olive oil in pan, sauté onion, bell pepper and zucchini.  Once the onion is translucent and the zucchini has softened a bit add the garlicaking sure to stir constantly so the garlic doesn't burn.  If you need to add more oil do so.  I season with the Sazon packet, a tsp of cumin, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste or salsa.  If the mixture is thick add a bit of water to loosen just a bit.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  I like to serve with flour or corn tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes and a generous squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
