1 pound ground turkey

1 teaspoon chili powder 

1 teaspoon ground cumin 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

One 14.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed 

1 cup prepared fresh salsa 

1 chipotle chile in adobo, chopped, plus 1 tablespoon adobo sauce 

12 corn tortillas 

For serving:

2 Roma tomatoes, diced

1 ripe avocado, diced

6 radishes, thinly sliced

1/2 cup queso fresco

Fresh cilantro leaves

Lime wedges

Sour cream


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey to the skillet and season with the chili powder, cumin and some salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, salsa, chipotle chile and adobo sauce to the skillet and cook, stirring often, until warmed through and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly char the tortillas over an open flame. Set aside wrapped in a clean kitchen towel to steam.
  3. Spoon the turkey mixture onto the tortillas and serve with diced tomato, avocado, radishes, queso fresco, cilantro leaves, lime wedges and sour cream.
