Step 1

Cook turkey and bell pepper in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until turkey is browned, stir to crumble. Add salsa; bring to a boil. Stir in cilantro, keep warm.

Place 1 cup lettuce on each of 4 plates, top with 1 cup meat mixture. Sprinkle with each serving with 1/2 cup tomato, 1/4 cup cheese, 1/4 cup chips and 1 tablespoon onions.


I wasn't sure about adding the hot ground turkey mixture on top of lettuce, so I put mixture on plate first, then added the lettuce and then the toppings. Turned out great that way!
