Updated February 3, 2015

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb frozen turkey meatballs (8 meatballs)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 4 Old El Paso™ Stand 'n Stuff™ taco shells
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 12 very thin slices jalapeño chiles
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup queso fresco cheese (1 oz)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

    Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with foil; top with rack. Spray rack with cooking spray.

    Add frozen meatballs, olive oil, cumin and coriander to resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag, and toss to coat. Place meatballs on half of rack; bake 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Place taco shells on other half of rack with meatballs, and return to oven. Bake about 3 minutes longer or until instant-read thermometer inserted in meatball reads 165°F.

    Divide lettuce among taco shells. Cut meatballs in half; place 4 halves in each shell. Top with chiles, salsa, avocado, cheese and cilantro.

  • Use a serrated knife to make cutting the meatballs a breeze.
