•This dish is usually made with chorizo. If using chorizo you don’t need to add any spices.
  • •1 lb ground turkey
  • •½ tsp cumin
  • •½ tsp ground paprika
  • •½ tsp oregano
  • •½ tsp salt
  • •½ tsp ground black pepper
  • •½ tsp chili powder
  • •½ tsp crushed red peppers
  • •2 TSP vegetable oil
  • •1 onion, sliced
  • •2 large potatoes, diced
  • •10 small corn tortillas (I used flour tortillas)
  • **For the Guacamole:
  • •1 avocado
  • •¼ onion
  • •1 TSP chopped cilantro
  • •juice of 1 small lime
  • •1 small jalapeno pepper, veined and seeded
  • •1 cup canned tomatoes
  1. In a medium skillet fry ground turkey with all the spices until it starts turning brown
  2. In a large skillet sauté sliced onion and add potatoes when onion is translucent.
  3. Add turkey to the potatoes and cover. Cook until potatoes are tender. Adjust seasoning, if needed.
  4. In the meantime using a food processor, mix the rest of the ingredients, avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno and tomatoes. That’s all you need to make delicious guacamole.
  5. Warm up tortillas. The best way to warm up tortillas is on a comal or on a heavy skillet. Warming tortillas in the microwave will make them mushy.
  6. Serve hot with guacamole and enjoy.
