I love taco night but it's pretty much impossible on AIP. Or is it? It's not impossible, it's just a bit of work. As someone who does not enjoy lettuce wraps for mexican dishes, I have to make my own tortillas. So far I've tested a few different plantain tortilla recipes but am still not 100% pleased with the texture of any. The flavor is always great but they just fall apart. How terrible is it to bit into your first taco and have it's entire, artfully assembled fillings fall out. Very sad. As a solution, I make a lettuce taco and then wrap that in the plantain tortilla.
If anyone has any tips on AIP approved plantain tortillas that don't fall apart - please post it in the comments. I'd love to hear.
AIP Turkey Taco Filling
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon fenugreek leaves
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cumin, optional but great if you're ok with seeds
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cooking oil of choice
1 lb ground turkey breast
tortillas of your choosing
garnishes: lime wedges, diced onion, chopped cilantro, zucchini salsa, lettuce
Combine salt, pepper, turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, fenugreek, oregano, cinnamon and the optional cumin with water. Set aside.
In a small pot over medium high heat, warm oil. When hot, add turkey. Stir occasionally, getting a nice brown on the meat, break into small pieces with spoon. When cooked through, about 10 minutes, add seasoning mixture. Stir until coated and liquid is absorbed, about 4 minutes.
Spoon onto shells and/or lettuce wraps and add toppings.
