My go to taco meat..

Morning lovelies! This morning I'm jumping on here to share a quick recipe with you all. If you follow me on instagram, then you know I have been on a HUGE freezer kick lately. I love stocking my freezers with goodies that make my week run A WHOLE LOT smoother. We have been busy lately. Between sports, dance, get my drift...things have been crazy with a capital c... ain't nobody got time for that ;) 

This taco meat is a saving grace. I whip up a big batch and then freeze it in 2 cup portions. I use this meat mixture in my tacos, burritos, enchiladas, Mexican casserole, and quesdillas. It's so yummy!!

Taco Meat Mixture

2 lbs ground turkey
2 yellow onions, chopped
1/2 cup taco seasoning (2 packets taco seasoning)
1/8 cup lime juice
2 tbl chopped cilantro

Brown ground turkey and onions in a skillet. Do not drain liquid from pan. Next add taco seasoning, cilantro, and lime juice. Stir well.

*You may need to add a little bit of water, if your mixture is on the dry side.

This is such a simple recipe. I like to do mine in a double batch. I then freeze this in 2 cups portions to use on taco night. I freeze my baggies in large, labeled freezer bags.

Easy peasy right? :)

  1. Hello,

    I found your blog through Pinterest.

    I love this food picture - it looks so delicious.

    This is the way we eat our our house, too - freezing meal size portions of meat ready to go. My husband buys meat on sale and grinds it with our KitchenAid meat attachment. We make our own sausage - and hamburger from steaks.

    I am now following your blog.

    Have a lovely Monday!
    :) Hope

  2. This is a great idea! I work 9 to 5 so by the time my son and I get home the prep time for meals can be exhausting on our nightly routine. This would be a great time saver when meal planning and doing a cooking day to work ahead.

  3. Great idea to cook ahead and just pull it out when needed!

    Happy Medley

  4. Yum! We always add black beans to our to make the meat go a little further.

  5. I do this too. We use taco meat in a lot of things. Love it with turkey meat. My hubs said he wouldn't like it - but he doesn't have a clue! My recipe is almost exactly like yours minus cilantro - we neither like it.
    Love reading your blog.
