Ingredient IQ

Roasted red peppers are one of those rare ingredients that taste as good from a jar as they do made from scratch. Jarred peppers are typically preserved in a simple brine of water, salt, and citric acid. We love these peppers whole on burgers and sandwiches, coarsely chopped and stirred into pastas and salads, or finely chopped in salsas and dips—proving they’re as versatile as they are delicious.

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


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 browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the black beans and taco seasoning and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and the beans are warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the turkey and beans cook, start preparing the cucumber salsa.


Make the cucumber salsa

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Cut the halves lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick slices, then crosswise 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.


Warm the tortillas

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.



Set out the tortillas, turkey–black bean mixture, and cucumber salsa and invite everyone to assemble their own tacos. Crumble the queso fresco on top and serve with the lime wedges.
