Ingredients:

  • 2 packages - (6.9 oz. pkgs) corn tortillas, cut into 6 wedges each
  • 1 tablespoons - vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces - 93% lean ground turkey, crumbled
  • 1/2 - green bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 cans - reduced-sodium tomato sauce, 8 oz.
  • 1 packages - reduced-sodium taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cans - no-salt-added black beans, 15 oz., drained, rinsed
  • 1/2 cups - jarred salsa
  • 4 - scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cups - shredded reduced-fat Monterrey Jack cheese
  • 2 - plum tomatoes, seeds removed, sliced
  • 1/3 cups - cilantro leaves

  • Directions:

    Heat oven to 425° F. Spread tortilla wedges on 2 baking sheets. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes. Flip over; spray with nonstick cooking spray and bake for 4-5 minutes more, until crispy.

    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and green pepper, stirring occasionally. Cook for 2 minutes, until turkey is no longer pink. Stir in tomato sauce and 1/3 cup water. Reserve 1 tsp of the taco seasoning mix and add remainder to skillet. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
