Dairy free/Soy free recipe ~ Turkey Tacos

Ever been to Qdoba?  Ever had their tiny tacos?  The pulled pork ones are especially good, and that is what I get for lunch when I go there.  No dairy needed.  Just pure goodness. 

Last week I set out to recreate my Qdoba experience at home and I think I hit the mark!  These tacos have all the flavors I love and none of the stuff I can’t eat.  Gotta love that!


Turkey Tacos

Make ahead – red onion salsa:

1 red onion (minced)

1 cup cilantro (minced)

1/4 cup lime juice

heaping 1/2 tea kosher salt

  • Mix all ingredients and let sit on the counter for an hour to over night.  The longer it sits, the better it is.  I had it fresh and Don had it the next day for lunch and it was WAY better the next day.  I think the flavors need time to incorporate.


1 lb ground turkey

1 cup cilantro leaves (minced)

3 Tbs lime juice

3 garlic cloves (minced)

1 package small corn tortillas

  • Mix ground turkey, lime juice, and minced garlic in a bowl until incorporated. 
  • Brown in a pan on Med heat.  After the turkey starts to brown, add cilantro leaves. 
  • Salt to taste (doesn’t take much). 
  • Put in corn tortillas and enjoy!
