|Ground turkey||1 1⁄2 Pound|
|Red onion||1 , finely chopped|
|Garlic||3 Clove (15 gm), finely chopped|
|Cilantro||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), finely chopped|
|Lime||1 , juiced|
|Olive oil||1 Tablespoon|
|Kosher salt||To Taste|
|Black pepper||To Taste|
|For chipotle aioli|
|Mayonnaise||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Adobo sauce||1 Tablespoon ((that dark red sauce that chipotle peppers come in))|
|Lime||1⁄2 , juiced|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm), finely chopped (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)|
|Chopped cilantro||1 Teaspoon|
1. Put a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle the pan with a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Once the oil is heated, add in the turkey.
2. When the meat is just beginning to loosen up and brown, toss in the onion and garlic. Continue cooking until the turkey meat is cooked through. Remove from the heat, drain any excess fat that has rendered during the cooking. Just don’t dump the meat into the sink, cuz then you’ll have to start over.
3. Put the skillet back on the stove, add in the lime juice and cilantro and stir to combine. Now wasn’t that easy, Dude?
4. Serve with your fave tortillas and toppings. You might give Sean’s chipotle aioli a try (see recipe below).
FOR SEAN'S CHIPOTLE AIOLI
1. Toss everything into a medium bowl and stir to combine. If you’d like to make it a little spicier like Sean does, toss in a chipotle pepper or two and purée the whole thing in a food processor or blender.
2. Use it as a condiment on tacos.
Note: the longer this sits, the better it tastes. If you can make this the night before, even better. Just cover and put in the fridge. But be sure to take it out while you’re cooking so it’s not ice cold on your tacos, cuz that’s a buzz kill.
