  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup cheese shredded

Serve With

  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 1/2 pepper chopped into strips
  • 1/2 tomato finely chopped


  • Heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add in the turkey and cook until browned, stirring every couple of minutes to break up the bigger meat chunks.
  • Add in the beans, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and water and stir until combined. Turn down heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Turn off heat, and let turkey mixture cool slightly. Spoon turkey and bean mixture onto a baby-friendly plate and sprinkle the cheese on top.
  • Serve with avocado chunks, pepper strips and tomato chunks or any of your favorite taco toppings.


For an adult version: serve the same ingredients inside of your favorite taco shell and top with salsa and freshly chopped cilantro.
