Blue Corn Turkey Tacos

Last night was a real treat, Jason cooked dinner! Of course I still did the documenting. We saw some great blue corn taco shells that I just had to try since we were in the mood for tacos. In our attempts to be healthy we like to use ground turkey for our tacos and make our own taco seasoning since the packets you find at the store can be loaded with sodium. This mixture was full of flavor and spice! You can adjust the peppers to make it more or less spicy for your taste.

Taco Seasoning

1 Tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

In a small bowl, mix together chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Store in an airtight container.

In a large saute pan start to cook 2lbs of ground turkey or beef. Then mix in the spices with a splash of water to mix and steam in the flavors.
Once it is finished cooking start building your tacos! We used the blue corn hard taco shells that I saw at whole foods, but you can use any type of hard or soft taco. Here is the box we used:
