WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

A combination of lean ground beef and ultra-lean ground turkey breast makes a less-greasy filling. Bypass taco-seasoning packets in favor of making your own full-flavored filling. 

Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 8 ounces
    93%-lean ground beef
  • 8 ounces
    99%-lean ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup
    chopped onion
  • 1 10-ounce can
    diced tomatoes with green chiles or 1 1/4 cups petite-diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground chipotle chile or 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    dried oregano
Instructions
  1. Place beef, turkey and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain off fat. Wipe out the pan. Return the meat to the pan and add tomatoes, cumin, ground chipotle (or chili powder) and oregano. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 3 to 6 minutes.
Tip
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Reheat just before serving.
