baked green chile turkey tacos


Happy Monday, dears! How was your weekend? Unfortunately, I spent most of mine lying in bed sick, but on the bright side, it gave me the time to read a gorgeously written book that I can't get out of my head (we'll talk about that another time). Now I'm looking forward to the week ahead, enjoying my summer vacation with some time by the pool, cooking projects, and, of course, The Bachelorette tonight!

This isn't our first time with baked tacos. We've been here before. And we'll surely be here again, since any time I ask Miles what I should cook for dinner, some version of these is always requested. And since they are so delicious and couldn't be easier, I'm more than happy to oblige.

Baked Green Chile Turkey Tacos
makes 8 tacos

you'll need:
olive oil
1 lb. ground turkey
1 (4 oz.) can green chiles
1 (4 oz.) can diced black olives
1/2 red onion, diced
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
8 taco shells
chopped green onions, for serving

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large skillet, heat a bit of olive oil over medium high heat. Add turkey and cook until browned and done, about 7-10 minutes. Add green chiles, black olives, red onion, and taco seasoning. Stir and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Line up taco shells standing up in an 8x8 dish (if all your shells don't fit, use a 9x13 dish instead). Divide turkey mixture among taco shells. Sprinkle pepper jack on top of each taco and bake for 10 minutes. To serve, sprinkle with chopped green onions and whatever else you like!

  5. Your tacos look so flavorful, no wonder it's often requested!
    And isn't it ironic how we always get sick right when vacation starts as though your body (and mind) knows you finally can. Glad to hear you're better - let summer begin! : )
