Baked Turkey Tacos 

Today, I am simplifying a beloved recipe for Taco Tuesday with Baked Turkey Tacos. This is one of my favorite dishes because it is one the whole family can help make! I always have the kids make the taco seasoning while the adults cook. Cooking as a family is such a great way to spend quality time together around the craziness of work and school. Enjoy!




  • 12 taco shells
  • 1lb ground organic turkey
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 3 tbsp taco seasoning (see below)
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled
