Turkey Tacos with Homemade Corn TortillasRECIPE
Published on Monday, March 20, 2023 by
One of my all-time favorite foods to eat is tacos.
I enjoy all types of tacos, from BBQ pork tacos topped with vinegar slaw to the traditional corn tortilla taco. This recipe is full of firsts for me. First, making homemade corn tortillas, and NO- you don’t even need a tortilla press, and second, making a taco seasoning that is GERD-friendly.
While researching GERD-friendly spices to go into the taco seasoning, one ingredient popped up: cinnamon. I love cinnamon and I think this will be a perfect way to spice up the tacos without the side effects of the traditional cayenne, garlic, or onion powder. If you think you need to use chili powder, red pepper flakes, or even black pepper to make a real, authentic-tasting homemade taco seasoning, then you haven’t tried this blend!
Not only is it gut-friendly, but it is delicious. Give it a try and let us know in the comments below what you thought of them!
The tortillas: This is why I gave this recipe a higher rating for the difficulty level. It’s not super difficult, but getting the right consistency and the right heat when frying the tortillas takes practice. By the time I was frying the last couple of tortillas the first time I made these, I felt I had it down.
If you watch the replay of the “What’s Cooking? With Dr. Koch” episode from Fireside Chat where we make these tacos, you will see me mention that the olive oil will appear ready for frying when the oil is “forming legs” or as Allison would say “it has lines in it” (aka streaking).
For the Taco Toppings: I prefer the traditional toppings when I use corn tortillas. You may top your tacos with your favorite garnishes, depending on your personal tolerances.
