Ground meat tacos get a lighter but just as flavorful twist with turkey. It’s tossed with warm and toasty spices and slices of poblano pepper in this recipe. To fill out the tortillas, there are crunchy slices of radish, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, and a drizzle of citrus-spiked sour cream. Enjoy it with everything or fill it just the way you (or your kids) like.

Southwest Spice Blend
Mexican Spice Blend
Flour Tortillas(ContainsSoy, Wheat)
Wash and dry all produce. Core and seed poblanos, then cut into ¼-inchwide strips. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add poblanos and onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until softened and slightly charred, 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, thinly slice radishes. Thinly slice jalapeño into rounds, removing ribs and seeds for less heat. Quarter limes.
Combine sour cream, 1 tsp Southwest spice (we’ll use more in the next step), and a squeeze of lime in a small bowl, then stir in water 1 tsp at a time until thinned to a drizzly consistency. Season with salt, pepper, and more lime (to taste).
Once poblanos and onion have softened, toss in turkey, 1 TBSP Mexican spice, and another 1 tsp Southwest spice to same pan (you’ll have some Southwest spice left over). (TIP: If your pan is too small to fit both the meat and the veggies, remove the veggies and set aside while cooking the turkey.) Break up turkey into pieces. Cook, tossing occasionally, until no longer pink, 4-5 minutes.
Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high until warm, about 30 seconds. TIP: Alternatively, wrap tortillas in foil and warm in oven for 5 minutes at 425 degrees.
Fill each tortilla with turkey and veggies, radishes, and jalapeño (to taste). Sprinkle with cheddar. Drizzle with crema. Tear cilantro leaves from stems and scatter over. Serve with lime quarters on the side for squeezing over.
