Grilled Turkey Tacos

Classic authentic Mexican flavours of cumin, oregano and chilies transform these grilled Turkey tacos into a family fave.


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless Ontario Turkey breast

  • 8 6-inch flour tortillas

  • 1 tsp each ground cumin, oregano and chili powder

  • ¼ tsp sea salt

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • ¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro

  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced

  • 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, sliced (ribs and seeds removed)

  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage

  • garnishes: springs of cilantro, avocado slices, lime wedges


  • In resealable bag, combine cumin, oregano, chili powder, salt, olive oil and cilantro, rubbing to make a paste. Add Turkey breasts and shake to thoroughly coat. Let sit for 30 minutes and up to one day.

  • In another bag, combine red onion, carrots, jalapenos, vinegar, sugar and salt. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to one day, tossing occasionally.

  • Grill Turkey over medium high heat until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

  • Toss carrot mixture with cabbage. Divide Turkey and cabbage mixture over warm grilled tortillas. Garnish with cilantro and avocado and serve with lime wedges and coarse salt.
