Ingredients

For the taco cups:

  • 12 12-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 cup grated cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 avocado — large, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup Pace® Salsa Verde

For the turkey (can use ground chicken instead):

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey breast
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin

Instructions

For the turkey (can use ground chicken instead):

  1. Combine all ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Add ground turkey and seasoning. Using a wooden spoon or a spatula break meat into large and then small pieces. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until cooked through.

For the taco cups:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 

    Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  2. Using a 3 1/2-inc or 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 24 rounds from the tortillas (2 rounds per tortilla).

    Place rounds in the muffin cavities and press own.

  3. Top with 1 tbsp ground turkey and 1 tbsp grated cheese.

    Bake for 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.

    Remove from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes.

  4. Using a fork, carefully remove cups from the muffin tin. Place on a plate or party platter.

    Top with copped avocado, tomatoes, sour cream and Pace® Salsa Verde
