Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t like tacos (except for my dad)?! Tacos are fun to eat and equally fun to make, especially for kids! I highly recommend trying this recipe for your family. Taco night can quickly turn into a healthy, fun, simple, and inexpensive weekly family dinner. Plus…it’s a really great way to encourage your kids to try new foods…especially veggies!

Suggested garnishes: sesame seeds (for broccoli slaw), corn salsa, sliced avocado, lettuce, shredded jack or cheddar cheese, ranch dressing, cilantro, fresh lime juice

BBQ Turkey Tacos

Recipe last updated: July 2014


Broccoli slaw:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 9 ingredients.  Stir until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with sesame seeds. Cover and refrigerate.


  1. Heat 1 T of canola oil in a large non-stick skillet on medium/high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until turkey is fully opaque white/tan in color, frequently turning with a spatula. You may need to add water (1/2 – 1 cup) to keep the meat moist as it cooks.
  2. Add the garlic powder, salt, pepper and BBQ sauce. Stir to combine.
  3. Fill taco shells with cooked turkey and top with broccoli slaw, lettuce, shredded cheese, avocado, and/or any of your other favorite garnishes!

    Can you please make these again when RRR 2.0 comes? We had fun that night!!!

  2. We really enjoyed these tacos! We used flour tortillas instead of the hard shells. I liked the flavor of the slaw mixed with the bbq sauce on the meat! Mmmmm! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. @ Aubri…I’m so glad you enjoyed these! Flour tortillas are a great substitute and probably so much less messy!
