The Best Ever Healthy Chipotle Tacos! Easy to make taco recipe that comes together in just 20 minutes. Plus it is gluten-free and a family favorite to make.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins

Yield: 8-10 tacos 1x


  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 pound ground turkey (or use ground chicken or beef!)
  • 3/4 cup chunky salsa (I used medium spice)
  • 23 teaspoons chipotle powder (I usually do 2 for Ez and I)
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 810 soft corn tortillas of choice
  • Toppings: shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro for garnish!


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Warm a large skillet over medium heat and add oil
  3. Sauté the onion over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until it starts to golden a bit
  4. Add in the meat and seasonings and mix well so everything is evenly combined
  5. Cook on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes or until meat is cooked fully through then add in the salsa
  6. Warm the tortillas in microwave for about 30 seconds so they are pliable then lightly grease them
  7. Lay each tortilla flat onto the baking sheet and add a spoonful of cooked meat to half the tortilla, sprinkle some cheese if desired then gently fold tortilla on top if you’d like (or you can cook open faced too – when I fold mine I usually wrap them in foil to help them stay in form!)
  8. Bake in oven for 8 minutes then gently flip and bake for another 5 minutes or so (I like to spray mine on top with oil so they get crispy)
  9. Serve with desired toppings while warm!


*Store leftovers in fridge for 5 days
