• 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (I used minced garlic from a jar, but fresh garlic would be even better)
  • 2 tablespoons green chile (diced, I used about half of a 4 oz. jar of diced green chiles, recipe called for fresh chiles which would be a bit hotter)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder (ground, recipe called for cayenne)
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup green onions sliced (thinly)
  • 1 bunch cilantro (finely chopped, about 1 1/4 cups chopped cilantro. I used 1 cup in tacos and 1/4 cup in salsa. Use more or less cilantro to taste.)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce (or use iceberg, Boston lettuce, or butter lettuce)
  • 2 avocado (medium, diced)
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (finely)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
  • sea salt (to taste)

Flavors were perfect and fresh. I had to use ancho chili powder instead 1 tsp was perfect. I also sprinkled some queso fresco on top. Delicious!

This recipe was so delicious, fresh and surprisingly filling. The tomato-avocado salsa was well worth the extra step. I like lime a lot so I added a little extra to both the meat and the salsa. The chipotle chili powder was a little pricey so I used about a tablespoon of regular chili powder and a dash of cayenne pepper. I don't like hot food but this combo gave it a little kick, but hardly any heat. So yummy and healthy!

My husband and I loved this recipe but we made a few modifications. We doubled the amount of cumin specified and also added more salt. We used powdered garlic and it still turned out great. Lastly, we bought store bought guacamole and then added the fresh ingredients to it to make an even better guacamole salsa topping. We will make this recipe again.
