  • 1 tbsp avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 medium onion finely diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • Juice of half a lime or sea salt to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp organic tomato sauce
  • Generous handful of cilantro leaves chopped
  1. In a large heavy skillet; heat the oil to medium. Add the ground chicken and cook, breaking into small bits with a wooden spoon as it does. When the chicken is about 3/4 done add the onions. Cook until the meat is done and the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the garlic and spices. Cook for a couple minutes to release the flavours. Season with a splash of fresh lime juice or sea salt.
  3. Add the tomato sauce and cilantro, heat through, and cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Serve in soft or hard taco shells with grated cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and a bit of taco sauce or salsa. This is also great as a topping for taco salad for those on a keto diet.
