Hey everyone, welcome to another installment of SAHD recipes. Today, I’ll share my super-secret Soft & Crunchy Taco recipe. This is the ultimate SAHD taco. It’s easy to make and the kids will love it. Take it from RB40Jr, he gives it 5 stars. This is pretty rare because my cooking is usually a bit different from the standard American fares. For RB40Jr, this one is right up there with my burgers and pizzas.

Usually, I put pictures with the SAHD recipe posts, but this time we made a video instead. I think it turned out pretty well. Crazy enough, RB40Jr got the first taco injury ever captured on video. He’s so accident-prone… Check out the new video at the end of this post.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Taco meat

DIY taco seasoning

*We usually cook pretty mild food. If you like more intense flavor, you can double it and add more salt/chili powder.

Avocado dressing

  • 1 large avocado or 2 small avocados
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Tortilla

  • Soft tortillas. I like the small street tacos tortilla from Mission.

Toppings

  • Avocado dressing – Normally, we just use Greek yogurt or sour cream. This time we had avocado so Mrs. RB40 made this.
  • Lettuce – butter lettuce is good here.
  • Cheese – You can use any cheese you like. I used cheddar and Junior went with parmesan, his favorite cheese. He puts parma or everything.
  • Doritos – my secret ingredient. You can use your favorite flavor.
  • Spicy taco sauce – My current favorite is Trader Joe’s Spicy Taco Sauce. It’s great. It’s similar to Taco Bell hot sauce which I love. Check it out if you haven’t tried it. Otherwise, you can go with anything available at the market like La Victoria or Taco Bell sauce.

*I add these links to Amazon so you can see what the ingredients look like. These items should be much cheaper at your local grocery store.

Cooking

  1. Heat up your skillet. Put a little oil in the pan and add onion. Stir around for a minute.
  2. Add garlic, oregano, and taco seasoning. Stir for just a few seconds.
  3. Add ground turkey and break it up. Cook until the turkey is about done (no longer pink.)
  4. Add tomato sauce, brown sugar, and cider vinegar. Cook it down for a minute or two. I like tomato sauce so I put the whole 8 oz can in. If you’re not a big fan, you can add half a can or just skip it.

Now, we need to put the turkey taco together and eat it.

  1. Warm up the tortilla in the microwave.
  2. Put down a tortilla.
  3. Add a little avocado dressing.
  4. Add taco meat.
  5. Add lettuce and cheese.
  6. Add broken up Doritos. Don’t crunch it into powder. Just break it up a bit.
  7. Add taco sauce.

Enjoy your delicious tacos!
