1

Prep and cook the turkey and beans

  • Cut a small corner from the ground turkey packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Rinse the black beans.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the turkey, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the black beans and as much spicy taco seasoning as you like and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are warm and the turkey is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, start preparing the salsa.

Make the roasted red pepper salsa

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into enough ¼-inch pieces to measure 2 cups [4 cups].
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; finely chop the peppers.
  • Zest the lime and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both limes; juice 1 lime and cut 1 lime into wedges.]
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In a large bowl, stir together the cucumber, roasted red peppers, cilantro, lime zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Prep the queso fresco; warm the tortillas

  • Crumble the queso fresco.
  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.

Serve

Set out the tortillas, turkey and black beans, roasted red pepper salsa, lime wedges, and queso fresco and invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
