Add oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
Add ground turkey and cook until brown, about 5-7 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat while cooking.
Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Pour in the water and tomato sauce and stir to combine. Let the mixture simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed.
While turkey mixture is simmering, heat the tortillas in a dry pan over medium-high heat, or wrap them in foil and heat in a 350°F oven for 5-10 minutes.
Assemble the tacos by spooning the turkey mixture onto the tortillas and topping with your desired toppings
