Taco Night

Everyone loves tacos, right? Right.

I'm not sure where the idea to add red onion came from. I think it was The Spouse's, actually, but I don't remember why or what inspired it. Quite possibly we may have had half a large red onion in the fridge that needed to be used up. But it actually gives them a nice flavor. Nothing fancy, super tasty, and super easy.

Ground Turkey Tacos
1 medium red onion, finely diced
1 lb extra-lean ground turkey breast
1 can black beans, rinsed
2 pkg taco seasoning, 1 regular, 1 hot
1 cup water

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray pan with cooking oil. Add in onion and sautee until translucent. Add in ground turkey, breaking it apart into bits with your spoon. Cook until turkey is browned. Add in black beans, stir. Add seasoning and water, mix well. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is reduced.

Serve immediately with warmed tortillas, cheese, salsa and other garnishes as desired.
