2 teaspoons olive or canola oil

1-1 pounds lean ground turkey

cup mild chunky salsa

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

teaspoon salt, or more, to taste

cup water

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned, using back of a spoon to crumble. Cook until meat reaches temperature of 165 degrees.

Add salsa, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt and water to meat in skillet; mix thoroughly and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until heated through.

Serve with hard or soft taco shells and your favorite taco toppings.

Serves four.

Cook's notes: My kids love this version for tacos with cheese. I use this meat in a taco salad, as a topping for baked potatoes or stir it into a bowl of black bean soup.
