  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 1/4 lb extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 15-oz can low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup, plus 2 tbsp chunky low-sodium salsa
  • 2 cups (packed) romaine lettuce, chopped

Pantry staples:

  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Ground black pepper and sea salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Loosely wrap tortillas in foil, making 2 packets of 6 tortillas each. Place packets on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until hot.
  2. Coat a skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add turkey and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes, breaking up meat as you go. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Unwrap foil packets and place 2 tortillas on each of 6 plates. For each plate, distribute 1/2 cup turkey, 1/4 cup beans, 3 tbsp salsa and 1/3 cup lettuce evenly between both tortillas. Serve immediately.
