I love tacos! Everyone in my family loves them. The issue is that we have them so often, I'm afraid my picky eaters will get sick of them. So I created this recipe to use the same flavors and give them something close to what they are use to. Using the farro and ground turkey meat, it's an upgrade in the health quality of the dish. I hope you enjoy!
