These little tacos may be small, but they pack a punch of flavor. Don’t let the words “Ground Turkey” scare you either. The meat is seasoned simply, and just enough to play nicely with the cilantro cream sauce.
Add all ingredients to a mini food processor (or use a full sized one if that's what you have) and blend very well. Taste and adjust amount of cilantro and/or salt to your liking. I like a strong cilantro flavor, and usually know it's ready when the sauce turns a pale tint of green.
Heat a skillet to med high and add the olive oil. When it starts to shimmer, add the diced onion. Stir occasionally, until softened.
Add the ground turkey, breaking it up as you cook it.
Add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
Cook until the meat is cooked through, and add the tomato paste. Cook it just a couple minutes longer to heat the tomato paste through.
Assemble your tacos with the cheese, then meat, diced tomatoes, and drizzle on some of the Cilantro Cream Sauce. Enjoy!
You can use Ground Beef if you prefer.
For Ground Turkey, I don't recommend extra lean.
