Total Time35 mins


  • Olive oil
  • 3/4 cup diced yellow onion about 1 small
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 cup chicken broth or water
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 canĀ  black beans drained and rinsed
  • 10-12 Taco Shells
  • 2 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • Your favorite taco toppings - lettuce tomatoes, sour cream, olives, avocado, etc.


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a large rectangular baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large (12-inch) skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add diced onion and cook until beginning to soften; 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then crumble in ground turkey. Cook until no longer pink; about 6-8 minutes.
  • Stir in taco seasoning and tomato paste and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth and blackĀ beans. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened; about 7-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  • Arrange taco shells in a large rectangular baking dish (you may need more than one baking dish, depending on the size). Using a slotted spoon, scoop about 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture into each taco shell. Top with 1-2 tablespoons of the shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and taco shells are crispy and just beginning to brown.
  • Top with your favorite toppings, like lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream. Serve immediately.
  • Leftover can be store in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for up to 2 days.
