Happy Taco Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Turkey Meatballs Tacos – succulent turkey meatballs on flour tortillas with fresh guac and some other goodies too!
I must admit, I was a bit sceptical about this recipe (meatballs on a taco) but I was so wrong. It turned out delicious, quite meaty to be honest. 🙂 But how could it not – juicy meatballs with lots of spices and sweet pepper, fresh guac, black beans & sour cream. You can even add some cheese, fresh jalapenos, coriander and whatnot. Why not build your own taco? Just don’t forget the main ingredient here – the Turkey Meatballs.
I made the meatballs quite small on purpose, after all I was gonna put them on a taco so I didn’t want any big ones. I used fresh coriander, red pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, black pepper, nutmeg and I think that’s about it. Oh, and one more thing, these are actually oven-baked. So no frying and you get a healthier option of meatballs. 🙂
The kids only had the meatballs though. They’re still not used to have the whole package with the sauces and beans, so they basically had a plain taco – meatballs only which was fine with me, as long as they had their dinner. 🙂
These Turkey Meatballs Tacos are super easy to make and that makes them perfect for a busy weekday dinner. You can even try to make the meatballs in advance and then just build your tacos from there. There are so many delicious options to choose from! 🙂
Quick tip: For a juicier version of the meatballs I add some grated Parmesan cheese and for a cheesy version – grated Mozzarella. 🙂
