Taco Tomatoes

Yields: 4 servings

Prep Time: 0 hours 5 mins

Cook Time: 0 hours 20 mins

Total Time: 0 hours 25 mins


1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

3/4 lb. ground turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

1 (1-oz.) packet taco seasoning

4 large, ripe beefsteak tomatoes

1/2 c. shredded Mexican cheese blend

1/2 c. shredded iceberg lettuce

1/4 c. sour cream


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and taco seasoning. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 8 minutes. Drain fat. 
  2. Flip over tomatoes so they’re stem-side down and slice to make 6 wedges, being careful not to cut all the way through. Carefully spread open wedges. 
  3. Divide taco meat among tomatoes, then top each with cheese, lettuce, and sour cream before serving.
  4. For a lower fat recipe, skip the cheese and sour cream! Add salsa instead!
