Insane Garlic Ground Turkey ========================= While not particularly fancy, the insane garlic ground turkey is a crowd pleaser. Ground Turkey ----------- * 2 pounds of ground turkey (preferably thigh meat) * Four yellow onions * Store-bought Taco Seasoning * More garlic than you can imagine (4-5 cloves) * Olive Oil 1. Chop several onions into slices. 2. In a large pan heat olive oil in a saucepan over high heat 3. Cook onions on high heat until they are almost caramelized. (10 minutes) 4. Reduce heat to medium. 5. Add ground turkey making sure to stir meat to ensure adequate turkey / onion mixture. 6. Cover and let turkey cook for 8 minutes. 7. Mix taco seasoning using one cup of water for each packet of seasoning 8. Add several cloves or garlic to pan. When in doubt with garlic always err on the side of too much. 9. Cook uncovered until taco seasoning is reduced. 10. Warn guests of impending garlic. Total cooking time: 30-40 minutes

Shredded Brussels Sprouts ========================= A surprising, unexpected *and delicious* green addition to your taco! * brussels sprouts * butter 1. Shred up your brussels sprouts so that they're flaked up. You're really going for almost a slaw-level shredding here. 2. Put a healthy amount of butter in a pan, melt it down with a little salt too. 3. Toss the shredded sprouts in, and fry 'em up until parts of them are browned up, and other parts have turned into a bright green. You're going for partial caramelization, but not all the way. You're not going to LOAD UP your taco with these, but they bring an amazing, mellow flavor to the mix. Especially good with fish tacos. tags: vegetarian

Kathy's Taco and Fajita Seasoning ================================= My cousin Kathy sent me this recipe for my birthday: Amazing taco/fajita seasoning – Use with any protein. It's a great recipe to quadruple so you have it ready for immediate taco needs. When making a big batch, use less salt. Combine: 2 tsp cumin 1 tsp EACH: paprika, onion powder, dried oregano, and kosher salt ½ tsp EACH: ground coriander, garlic powder and black pepper ¼ tsp EACH: red pepper flakes, ground ginger and cayenne pepper tags: vegetarian, vegan

naan ===================== Naan bread can be purchased or made. It is easier to buy it at a store. Naan bread is a flatbread that tends to be fluffy and easy to tear apart.
