Easy Crispy Taco Turnovers

Easy Crispy Taco Turnovers

Time: 17 mins


  • 1 lb lean ground beef (can use ground turkey if you like)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (I like mine spicy and use a little more)
  • 2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese (or cheese of your choice)
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • 1 cup diced jalapenos or 1 cup green chili (optional)
  • 4 large wheat flour tortillas
  • oil, for frying


  • 1 Brown together the ground beef or turkey, onion and garlic in a heavy frying pan over medium heat, until meat looses pinkness.
  • 2 Add salt and chili powder to meat, mixing well.
  • 3 Put 1/2 cup of the ground beef filling, 1/2 cup of cheese, and 1/2 cup of tomatoes onto one half of each tortilla adding your jalapeno/green chilies now if you want to use them.
  • 4 Fold the other half of tortilla over and press to remove any air pockets.
  • 5 Heat oil in pan to medium high, and when hot, place filled tortillas into the pan 1 or 2 at a time, size of pan permitting.
  • 6 Saute over medium high heat until golden brown on each side, approximately 45 seconds per side.
  • 7 Remove and place on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
  • 8 Cut into wedges and serve!
