Paula Dean Tacos

I'm not sure why these are called Paula Dean Tacos. I search google for that recipe, and nothing comes up. I don't even know where I got the recipe. These are healthy and don't contain a stick of butter like her typical recipes, however we continue to call these Paula Dean Tacos .=)

1 lb ground turkey
1/4-1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, ribbed and seeded, minced
8 oz can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chipotle chili powder
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper
8-10 taco shells
taco toppings

Brown ground turkey in a large skillet; add onion and jalapeno and saute a few minutes or until tender. Add tomato sauce, cilantro, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder and fresh lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Simmer for 5-10 minutes. If mixture starts to look too dry, add 1 or 2 Tbsp of water and stir to combine.

Serve in crunch or soft taco shells with desired toppings.
