Instructions
Queso-Style Ground Turkey
  1. In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat until it’s shimmering. Add the minced onion and garlic and let cook for a minute until softened. Next, add the ground turkey, salt, cumin, and pepper flakes, making sure to break up the turkey with a spoon. Cook the turkey until golden brown, approx. 3 minutes.
  2. Lower the heat to medium-low and add in the grated pepper jack cheese. Stir frequently until the cheese is combined.
  3. Remove from heat and keep warm until ready to use. This will keep refrigerated for up to 4 days; reheat slowly over low heat in a pan on the stovetop, stirring frequently.
Walking Tacos
  1. On a serving platter or bowl, open each bag of corn chips and gently fold the tops 1/4 of the way down.
  2. Carefully spoon Queso-Style Ground Turkey into each bag, making sure to leave room for the other toppings. Add the shredded lettuce, radish, cotija cheese, jalapeños, green onions, and a dollop of sour cream. Put a fork in each bag and serve with hot sauce on the side.
