One Pot Turkey Taco Skillet

Prep Time: 20 minutes, Cook Time: 15 minutes, Total Time: 35 minutes
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey (or meat/meat-alternative of your choice, I used 93% lean ground turkey)
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 3 cups greens of your choice (I used spinach, but any spinach/kale/etc. mix will work)
  • 1½ cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 Tbsp high heat oil like avocado or canola oil
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp green onions, chopped for garnish


  1. In a large pan with a small amount of oil, lightly brown ground turkey on medium heat, mixing often and breaking into small crumbles.
  2. Drain excess fat from the pan.
  3. Turn heat down to medium-low and add diced onions, and cook until onions start to get translucent, stirring often.
  4. Add tomatoes and taco seasoning and mix well.
  5. Add greens and let wilt as you stir them into the mixture.
  6. Cover mixture with shredded cheese until mostly melted.
  7. Garnish with chopped green onions and drizzle with lime juice.
  8. Serve hot on its own or with flat bread, in a burrito, or in flour or corn tortillas.
