So fresh and simple to prepare, 20-Minute Turkey Tacos with Peach Basil Salsa is a flavor-packed, easy weeknight dinner everyone will love.



For the Tacos:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 yellow or white onion, finely chopped, divided

¼ teaspoons salt, divided

1 lb ground turkey, dark or light meat

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon cumin

8 corn tortillas, warmed

Hot sauce to taste (optional)

Sliced avocado (optional)

For the Peach Basil Salsa:

4 ripe firm peaches, finely chopped

Juice of 2 limes

¼ yellow or white onion, finely chopped

2 teaspoons finely chopped basil

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon chopped jalapeño (optional)


  1. Set aside ¼ of the chopped onion in a medium bowl for the salsa.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add the remaining ¾ of the chopped onion and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Sauté 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened.
  3. Add the turkey, garlic, cumin, and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Cook the turkey, stirring occasionally until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the salsa by combining the peaches, lime juice, onion, basil, jalapeño (if using), and salt in a medium bowl, stirring to combine.
  5. Make the tacos by filling each tortilla with cooked turkey and topping with peach salsa.


Serve the tacos deconstructed by offering cooked turkey, a warmed tortilla, sliced peaches, and a few leaves of basil separately on a plate.

Swap cilantro or fresh mint for the basil in the salsa.

Use ground beef in place of the turkey.
