Few meals are greeted with as much adoration around our dinner table as tacos. We all like them. They are tasty, fun to assemble and, depending on your ingredients, can be pretty darn healthy. On taco night, everyone comes to the table happy and leaves with a full belly. I wish I could say the same for every meal I make.
Just because we all like taco night doesn't mean we eat them the same way. We all like different toppings, one of my kids doesn't want meat of any kind on his, and that's okay. That's the magic of mix-and-match tacos. I serve them family style with lots of ingredient options so everyone can stuff their hard or soft shell tortilla any way they like.
My favourite taco toppings are sliced avocado, fresh diced tomato and chilled sour cream. So that's what I went with for the second recipe in my All-Bran blog series. These turkey corn tacos contain a full cup of added fibre so you can put big flavour and healthy fibre on the table in one easy meal.
Last week I shared an appetizer recipe using All-Bran (my Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball) and next week I will be sharing a dessert recipe plus giving you an opportunity to win an All-Bran prize pack!

All-Bran Turkey Corn Tacos
Serves 4 to 5 people
2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
1 1/2 lb (675 g) ground turkey breasts or thighs
1 cup (250 mL) frozen corn kernels
1 cup (250 mL) All-Bran Original cereal
2 tbsp (30 mL) chili powder
1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin
1 tsp (5 mL) garlic powder
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water
8 to 10 medium tortillas
8 to 10 butter lettuce leaves
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 cup (250 mL) diced tomato
1/2 cup (125 mL) sour cream
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook until no longer pink, using a wooden spoon to break up the turkey as it browns. Stir in the corn, All-Bran, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and salt. Pour in the water. Turn the heat to high and bring the works to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
To assemble tacos, place one lettuce leaf on each tortilla. Spoon some of the turkey corn filling onto each taco. Top with slices of avocado, diced tomato and a dollop of sour cream.
Are tacos a favourite at your dinner table? What toppings do you serve them with?
