  • 2 teaspoons olive oil or canola oil
  • 8 ounces uncooked ground turkey breast
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped red sweet pepper
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon water 
  • ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 5 100-calorie packages nacho cheese-flavor tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • ⅔ cup diced tomato
  • ⅓ cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 5 teaspoons of light or whole sour cream 


” Put it together!” 

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add turkey breast, onion, and sweet pepper. Cook until turkey is no longer pink, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Stir in taco seasoning, the water, and crushed red pepper. Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
  2. Meanwhile, open the bags of tortilla chips; if desired, gently crush chips. Add lettuce to the bags. Top with cooked turkey mixture, tomato, and cheese. Top each with a teaspoon of the sour cream. Use a fork to mix together and eat from the bag.
