Double Decker Tacos with Ground Turkey!

 I love me some Mexican food as we all know!  And tacos are just easy, awesome, and versatile.  Growing up, I was addicted to the double decker tacos from Taco Bell but those are riddled with fat and unhealthy ingredients so I branched out to make my own!  This is normally made with hamburger, but I've discovered that you can't tell the difference with ground turkey!! It's healthier, less fatty and man is it good!!!  Feel free to play around with it to your liking!

Taco Meat
*can make around 8-10 tacos

1 lb. Ground Turkey
½ a Bell Pepper (chopped)
1/4 Onion (chopped)
2/3 C. Water
¼ C. Taco Seasoning (We use Tone's Taco Seasoning from Sam's Club)
Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Garlic Powder to taste
Olive Oil

1. Cook onion and bell pepper with oil on med heat for a few mins to soften them up a bit.
2. Add turkey and spices and brown the meat.  
3. Add taco seasoning and water.  Bring to a boil and then switch to low heat.  Cook until water is pretty much gone (around 20-25 mins).
