Taco Night

At long last, we had Taco Night this past weekend.  As some of you know, tacos are my husband's favorite food, and he would be happy if we ate them every week.  I like tacos quite a bit myself, but we need some balance.  This makes enough to serve at least 4.  We usually eat the tacos in tortillas the first night, and taco salads for the leftovers.

Ground Turkey Tacos
1 pound ground turkey
Canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 Tablespoon each cumin and chili powder
1 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne or habanero pepper
Shredded lettuce
Chopped tomato
Shredded cheese
Sour cream
Hot Sauce
Other topping ideas: pickled jalapenos, avocado, mango, salsa

In a saute pan, or large frying pan, brown the meat.  Drain in a colander and wipe out the pan.
Heat canola oil over medium heat, add onion, garlic and bell pepper and saute a few minutes.
Return meat to pan, add spices and tomato sauce.  Allow to simmer for at least 5 minutes.
Prepare toppings, warm tortillas, and eat!
