We’re taking action for you to help you save time and money. Fresh ground turkey is on sale this week at Sprouts Farmers Market. A one pound package is $5.99.

If there is not a Sprouts near you, you can find one pound packs of ground turkey on sale at Save-A-Lot for $.79 each.

I used the ground turkey to cook up tasty turkey tacos for the whole family using a recipe I created.

Here is a list of the following ingredients you will need:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 2 c. Shredded lettuce
  • 1 c. chopped tomatoes
  • 1 c. shredded Cheddar
  • 1 c. Shredded Monterey Jack
  • vegetable oil
  • Hot sauce, for serving

In a skillet over medium heat, add ground turkey, chili powder, paprika and cumin. Break up the meat during cooking with a wooden spoon until the turkey is completely brown throughout. Drain the fat and then season with salt and pepper.

In another skillet, heat two teaspoons vegetable oil. Take a fork and poke holes in your tortillas and then lightly brown them on both sides, about a minute on both sides. Use a paper towel to blot any excess oil.

Then serve with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese.
