Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add taco seasoning, garlic, and oregano, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add ground turkey and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost cooked through but still slightly pink, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in tomato sauce, vinegar, and brown sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 4 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Divide filling evenly among tortillas and serve with healthy garnishes such as shredded lettuce, diced tomato and avocado, scallions, and cilantro leaves.

Recipe Notes

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste plus 1/2 cup water may be substituted for the tomato sauce.
