Ground Turkey cooking in Instant Pot in 5 minutes

Ground Turkey

Ground Turkey Tacos is a great alternative to other protein as it’s low in fat.  Ground Turkey is both light and dark meat ground up together and can be used and substituted in any recipe that calls for Hamburger.

I prefer to use an 85/15 Fat Content as it gives just the right amount of fat to cook in.  But remember to drain off all excess fat.  You don’t want that in your Ground Turkey Tacos Recipe

Instant Pot

Cooking ground meats in the Instant Pot is a cinch.  Okay, I wasn’t a believer at first either.  Trust me!  Place your water or broth in the bottom of your Instant Pot and use a trivet to place your meat on top.  Season with Salt and Pepper is always recommended.

Let the Instant Pot do it’s magic, I promise you.  It’s magic.  In a few short minutes your Ground Turkey will be cooked.  Remove your turkey, and discard the drippings and clean out your pan. 


The pan will wipe out quickly and easily.  Add your cooked ground turkey back to the pot and with a wooden spoon chop up the meat.  It will fall apart.

Instant Pot (Cont)

Turn your Instant Pot to Saute’ and now add the remaining ingredients and stir.  Remember to stay and watch your food while on Saute’ you don’t want anything to stick and burn.  

Within minutes the veggies will have cooked down and your filling is ready for a tortilla soft shell, hard shell, or even a lettuce wrap.  Ground Turkey Taco’s are a low carb, Keto Friendly filling as well as Gluten Free.

More Tacos

Make sure to take a look and try our Pork Street Tacos.  These have been a family favorite for years and so easy to make with a Pork Roast or Tenderloin.

What to Serve with Tacos?

Don’t Fear, I’ve got you covered.  Make some Cilantro Lime Rice to serve on the side or a fresh garden salad and don’t forget to have Chips and Salsa.  Yum!
