Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1/4 cup spinach chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 zucchini diced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 cup Pecorino Romano
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 1/2 cup low fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 bag whole wheat tortilla chips

Instructions

  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add 1 teaspoon oil, then garlic, chili powder, cumin and salt. Stir until fragrant, 30 sec. Add tomato paste, carrots, bell pepper and green onions. Cooking for 5 minutes. Crumble in turkey. Cook, breaking meat up with a fork, until it’s no longer pink, 4 to 5 min. (I used ground turkey breast so there was virtually no fat but you may have to drain off any excess fat at this point. Ask your butcher to grind it up for you.)
  • Add spinach and zucchini, cook for 2 minutes, remove from heat.
  • Turn broiler on.
    Spread tortilla chips out on baking sheet. Spoon turkey mixture over, then sprinkle with cheese.
  • Broil in top third of oven just until cheese melts, 1-2 minutes. min. Serve topped with lettuce, sour cream, tomato, green onion and cilantro.
