Deceptively Delicious :: Tacos

Over the past few weeks I have been sharing recipes from the book Deceptively Delicious.  This week’s recipe was tacos.  The secret ingredient: carrot puree.  Above you will see that the ground turkey, crushed tomatoes, taco seasoning, and carrot puree are cooked together for a beautiful delicious Mexican meal.
A little tip on cheese: I find that usually the biggest blocks of cheese are the most inexpensive to buy.  So instead of shipping out more money for shredded cheese, I shred my own.  It is a little time consuming, but by using my food processor to shred it all, I have little bags of cheese for the refrigerator and freezer for weeks to come. 
My favorite part of the recipe?  She suggests baking the tacos in the oven, stuffed with the ground turkey mix and cheese.  {I stuffed little ramekins in there to help keep the tacos standing up straight}
And let me just tell you, crisp shells and oozing tacos are ah-may-zing!!!

What is your favorite taco topping?  Mine is guacamole!


  1. Yum!! We love tacos...or any Mexican food, really. ;)

  2. Definitely Guacamole! Those look so good!
    My friend recently bought this book and really likes the recipes. I'm thinking I'm gonna have to go get this book asap!

  3. Did you find the taste any different? I love mexican food :) I need to get a new food processor just for shredding cheese! I had one but it died quite a few years ago and I miss that function :)

  4. I just finished putting together our first dish from the cookbook (the Double Delicious one). It's Ellen's Baked Ziti and it has cauliflower and carrot in it. I worked on pureeing lots of stuff part of yesterday and part of today. Now my freezer is full and our meals for the next week are all going to be deceptively delicious! =) I'm anxious for dinner tonight to see how it goes over. Your tacos look great! I'll have to try those....

  5. I have to get this cookbook! My son is so picky. This would probably be the only way I could "sneak" healthy food in. Meals are so hard.
