Turkey, Black Bean & Bleu Cheese Taco Recipe (Two tacos)


  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup raw spinach (or any greens you want in your tacos)
  • 1/2 red onion (seriously, red and nothing else)
  • 1.5 plum tomato
  • 1/2 lime
  • 8 oz lean ground turkey
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans
  • 3-4 tbsp bleu cheese
  • 1/4 cup Spanish olives
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated or minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Start by prepping the turkey filling. Heat up a pan or skillet with the olive oil and cook the ground turkey along with 1/4 of the onion and garlic over medium-high heat. Drain any excess liquid once the turkey has browned. Toss in the turkey in a saucepan along with the can of black beans (liquid and all), bleu cheese, cumin, and cayenne pepper; cook this on medium heat until the cheese has melted and some of the liquid has cooked down to make a creamy mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Make the salsa next by dicing the remaining 1/4 onion and plum tomatoes into a bowl. Squeeze some lime and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Put together your tacos: spinach, black bean, and turkey mix, and some salsa. Squeeze some extra lime over the tacos and eat your face off!

Salsa Verde Chicken Taco Recipe (Two tacos)


  • 4 tortillas
  • lettuce
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1.5 cups of your favorite salsa verde (I used one from my local Mexican grocery store)
  • 5-8 radishes
  • 1 lime
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1/2 cup of canned black beans (without the canning liquid this time)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Put the chicken and salsa verde in your slow cooker. Set the slow cooker on high and cook for 4-5 hours. You should be able to shred the chicken breast with a fork at the end of the process. Remove the shredded chicken from the cooking liquid.
    Note: I saved the cooking liquid and used it to make some amazing brown rice; use it the same way you would use chicken broth.
  2. Prepare the salsa by dicing the radishes and spring onions into a bowl. Toss in the black beans, lime juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Compile your taco! Lettuce, shredded chicken, salsa, and a slice of avocado. Squeeze some more lime and nom!
