Spicy Taco Meat

I made a ton of taco meat.  You don't have to make as much, you can certainly halve the recipe if you'd like. But it freezes so well and you can do so much with it! 

I made tacos. Of course.

Then there was the potato nachos.  Then for breakfast I made a taco omelette. 

I really recommend making a huge batch.  It will be worth it.

Spicy Taco Meat
6 lbs. ground turkey
1/2 cup chili powder
4 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. cayenne
Salt (to taste)
1 can tomato sauce
2 cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes with Chiles
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
3 tbsp. brown sugar
Chicken broth (to moisten)

Brown ground turkey in a large pan (or use 2 pans). Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes or so.  Separate into 3 containers and freeze.

Sweet, Sticky, Spicy Chicken


  1. Yum! I had tacos last night with veggie crumbles and they were great. I like your spice mix here, I think I'll have to use that next time.

  2. Yum I love tacos. Tacos, taco salad... anything that tastes like tacos!!!!

  3. That looks delicious! I probably would just take a spoon to it and call it day. I don't know if I could make a huge batch, it would be too tempting to just eat it all.

  4. Hi Debbi,
    This looks like a great recipe, we like it spicy like this. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week end and come back soon!
