    1. Mix chilli powder, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion granules, oregano and cayenne together in a small bowl.
    2. Cook turkey mince in a large nonstick pan over medium heat, stirring to break up clumps, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chilli powder mixture and water. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
    3. Stir cider vinegar and brown sugar into the pan. Simmer until flavours combine, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl.

    Very nice, easy to make and we had it in jacket poatoes. A healthy option for dinner  -  10 Jul 2017


    Delicious flavor but way too much salt. And I was already using 16 oz turkey, not 12. I ended up having to curb the saltiness by adding some plain cooked oatmeal to soften the salty flavor. It also helped to add some bulk to the taco meat. Next time I'd use only 1/4 tsp. otherwise I will use this recipe again  -  25 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did not make any changes & my family loved this. I made the entire recipe, but only used half & stored the rest for next time.  -  15 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
