Turkey Tacos

Tacos are a real winner with everyone and great for a group as you can mix and match toppings really easily. They are also a good option when cooking for a mix of meat and veg eaters.

My favourite taco toppings involve lots of different tastes and textures which provide a source of crunch (lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, cucumber), protein (turkey, chicken, steak or prawns), healthy fats (avocado) and drizzle (yoghurt, pesto, sweet chilli sauce).

You can easily replace the turkey with chicken by poaching a raw chicken breast in boiling salted water until cooked through. Drain and allow to cool before shredding between two forks.

The tomato sauce in this recipe is really versatile and works great with lots of different dishes. It will be also stay fresh in the fridge for 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
