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


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat one side of tortillas with cooking spray; gently pleat and place tortilla sprayed side down, in each of 8 large muffin cups. Bake until crisp, 12-15 minutes; remove and cool.
  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.
