Turkey mince taco recipe

Turkey mince tacos with pineapple salsa and homemade tortillas

Budget-friendly and quick to cook, this is a tasty fakeaway for weekends spent at home.

Serving: 6
Time: 50 minutes
Difficulty: Medium


  • 2 tbsp fajita spice mix
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, roughly chopped
  • 400g plum tomatoes, drained
  • 1.2kg turkey mince

For the pineapple salsa: 

  • Half a lime
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Half a medium red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 avocado, halved, stoned and roughly chopped
  • 10g fresh mint, chopped
  • 150g pineapple, roughly chopped

For the tortillas:

  • 60ml olive oil
  • 200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 150g self-raising flour

To serve: 

  • Creme fraiche
  • 300g mango chutney


  1. Heat the oil in a heavy-based pan (preferably cast iron) over a medium heat and sauté the onion for 2 minutes then add in garlic and spice mix, cook for a further 2 minutes.
  2. Add the turkey mince and fry for 5 minutes until the meat has changed colour. Add the drained tomatoes, allow to cook for another 10 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce.
  3. While the turkey is cooking, make the tortillas. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt and olive oil and give everything a whisk. Add 175ml warm water from the kettle then mix together with a fork until a dough starts to form. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until a soft dough ball forms. Wrap in cling film and rest on a warm counter for 30 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 16 equal portions and shape into small balls. Roll out into 7cm rounds using a sprinkle of flour to stop things from sticking. Heat a heavy-based cast iron pan over a medium heat, then add the tortillas and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
  5. To make the salsa, put all the ingredients in a bowl with a good pinch of salt and pepper and mix to combine.
  6. To serve, top each tortilla with turkey mince, salsa and a dollop of crème fraîche and mango chutney.
