Grilled Turkey Fajita Kebabs

Delicious turkey fajita-flavoured kebabs, perfect for the spring on the grill, or on the BBQ in the summer months.


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless turkey thighs or turkey breast
  • 4 tbsp avocado oil, divided
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp kosher salt + 1 tsp
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium green bell pepper
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • Fresh Salsa
  • Flour Tortillas


  1. Whisk 3 tbsp avocado oil, lime juice, minced garlic, chilli powder, granulated garlic, 1/2 tbsp salt, paprika, cumin, oregano, and black pepper in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cut the turkey into 1-2 inch chunks. Place them in the bowl of marinade and toss until fully coated. Allow the turkey to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or refrigerate overnight.
  3. Preheat the grill to 400 °. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water. No need to soak when using metal skewers.
  4. While the turkey is marinating, cut the bell pepper and onion into 1-inch pieces. Place them in a bowl and coat them with 1 tbsp avocado oil and 1 tsp kosher salt.
  5. Alternate between turkey and vegetables while filling a skewer. Be mindful to leave approx 1 inch of both ends empty for easy manoeuvring on and off the grill.
  6. Lay each skewer on the grill and cook for 10-15 minutes until the turkey is fully cooked through. Remove the kabobs from the grill and allow them to rest for 10 minutes.
  7. While the kabobs are resting, place the tortillas on the grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.
  8. Serve the kabobs with grilled tortillas, sliced avocado, and fresh tomato salsa. Additional lime wedges are also a nice touch.
