Fancy Schmancy Plain Ol Tacos

I have a LOT of catching up to do with recipe posting! 

Ground Turkey Tacos on Flour Tortillas:

Brown 1 package ground turkey breast.  Once very chopped up, either pour 1/3 cup or 2 packets taco seasoning on the meat and mix well. add 1/2 cup water to help the seasoning dissolve. 
*Alot of seasoning is necessary due to the low fat content of the meat..... trust me.... use a lot.

Put just barely enough olive oil to cover the bottom of a 6"-8" frying pan. Heat on high flame until bubbles emit when putting the handle of a wooden spoon in the oil.  FLASH FRY the tortillas on each side... careful not to do it too long or you will burn the shells!  You will have to add a bit more oil after frying 1-2 tortillas.  Lightly salt one side of the cooked shell and place in taco stand to keep shape.  I normally use the 'raw' corn tortillas.... either way is tasty.

Assemble in this order:
  • 1 scoop taco meat (about 4 tbsp)
  • Shredded mexican cheese
  • Couple drops taco sauce of your choice
  • Generous helping of Pico De Gallo (recipe coming tomorrow)
  • Spoon sour cream on shell top/side
  • Shredded lettuce (on the sour cream)
