National Guacamole Day: Mexican Ground Turkey Taco-stada with Guacamole

National Guacamole Day: Mexican Ground Turkey Taco-stada with Guacamole
As a resident of sunny California there is access to some of the best avocados in the country, if not the world. Like California Avocados. This versatile fruit can be transformed in a number of ways, including the very popular GUACAMOLE! This recipe creation of mine is a fusion of a taco and tostada, hence the taco-stada was born to celebrate National Guacamole Day...
Serves: 4
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
2 T. canola oil, divided
1 lb. ground turkey
1 packet taco seasoning
1/4 c. water
4 whole wheat tortillas
2 c. romaine lettuce, chopped
1/4 c. cilantro, minced
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. cherry tomatoes, variety of colors
1/4 c. sliced black olives
1/4 c. sour cream
1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 t. dried Mexican oregano
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. paprika
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high and add turkey. Cook until no longer pink, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and return to skillet along with taco seasoning and water. Mix well and continue to cook until water has dissolved and the turkey has soaked up the seasoning, another 8 to 10 minutes.
In the meantime heat remaining oil in another large non-stick skillet and cook tortillas until slightly golden and crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
For the guacamole combine the ingredients in a small bowl and using a fork mash together, leaving it a bit chunky.
Assemble taco-stadas by evenly topping each tortilla with the lettuce, cilantro, green onions, ground turkey, cheese, tomatoes, olives, sour cream and guacamole.
