Us American’s over the years have definitely made this Mexican staple our own. Although we’ve all probably had a few homemade versions that made us want to head south of the border. ¡Que lastima! Señor Sean y a veces Adam have got your back. Sean’s making his tried and true turkey tacos, while Adam’s veggie version is with potatoes (inspired by his frequent trips to a certain fast food place that starts with a T and ends with a Bell). Both are hella easy to make and super tasty. Click for Adam's Veggie Potato Tacos Recipe. Plus, Sean whips up a bonus chipotle aioli that’s a great topper for them tacos.
Ingredients
  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
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

MAKING
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?

SERVING
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
MAKING
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.

SERVING
2. Use it as a condiment on tacos.

TIPS:
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.
