Ground Turkey & Avocado Taquitos (Gluten-free, Paleo)

  • Author: Michelle
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 8 taquitos 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free



For the avocado mixture

  • 2 medium avocados
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste (omit pepper for AIP)

For the skillet and taquitos

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 lb ground turkey
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 1 cup zucchini, shredded (and excess water squeezed out)
  • 8 grain-free tortillas (I use Siete Almond flour tortillas, use cassava for AIP)
  • Avocado oil spray
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Make the avocado mixture by mashing the avocado and combining it with the lime juice, and seasonings. Set aside.
  • Prepare the skillet by heating the avocado oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 3-4 minutes or until the onion is slightly translucent.
  • Add the ground turkey and zucchini to the skillet, and season. Crumble the turkey until fully cooked. Set aside.

  • Heat the tortillas for about 5-10 seconds to make them more pliable. Spoon 1 large spoonful of the avocado mixture, and about 2 spoonfuls of the turkey mixture. Roll into a tight taquito and transfer to the baking sheet. Repeat with all of the tortillas. Spray with avocado oil spray.

  • Bake the taquitos in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until crisp (see notes for air fryer instructions)

  • Remove from the oven and serve topped with cilantro, red onion, and guacamole or salsa on the side to dip.


To make in the air fryer cook at 370 for 6-8 minutes or until crisped to your liking.
