20-Minute Turkey Tacos with Peach Basil Salsa

Yield 8 tacos

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

Ingredients

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
  • ⅛-¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped jalapeño optional

Instructions

  • Set aside ¼ of the chopped onion in a medium bowl for the salsa.
  • 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.
  • Add the turkey, garlic, cumin, and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Cook the turkey, stirring occasionally until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the salsa by combining the peaches, lime juice, onion, basil, jalapeño (if using), and salt in a medium bowl, stirring to combine.
  • Make the tacos by filling each tortilla with cooked turkey and topping with peach salsa.

Notes

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.
Make these tacos paleo- and Whole30-friendly by swapping lettuce wraps for tortillas.
