Sara Andrea


This recipe came from the September/October 2015 WeightWatchers Magazine. I made some minor modifications and used my homemade taco seasoning (see recipe listed on my page for Taco Seasoning).

How to Make Turkey Taco Cups

  2. Meanwhile, coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Add turkey, onion and pepper; cook, breaking up turkey until turkey is cooked through and onions are soft and translucent, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add taco seasoning and chipotle; stir to combine. Add tomatoes, beans, and corn; heat through. Spoon 1 cup filling into each tortilla cup; sprinkle with cheese and cilantro and serve.
