Greek Tacos

This is a surprising twist on tacos, and can be made more authentic by using ground lamb in place of the turkey.
30 Minutes to Prepare and Cook
1 pound ground extra lean turkey or Lamb
1 can (14.5oz) no salt added diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tsp Greek seasoning*
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1 can (2.25oz) sliced black olives, drained
1 package (12) taco shells
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup red onion
*see instructions for Greek seasoning recipe


Makes 12 tacos (nutrition info is per taco)
In large skillet, cook turkey over medium heat until no longer pink, drain. Stir in the tomatoes (with juice, don't drain), Greek seasoning, garlic and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 8-10 minutes or until thickened. Add spinach and olives, cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
While mixture is cooking, place taco shells on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees fro 3-5 minutes or until heated through. Spoon about 1/4 cup turkey mixture into each shell, top with feta cheese and onion.
*If you can't find Greek seasoning, make one tablespoonful by combining 1/2 teaspoon each dried oregano, dried marjoram, garlic powder, lemon-pepper seasoning, ground mustard, and salt. Add all ingredients, stir well, and measure out 2 teaspoons of mixture for recipe. Store the remainder in a zip-top bag for next time!
