 Ingredients:

  • Lean ground turkey 
  • 1/2 packet Frontera taco seasoning (pictures below) 
  • Canned pinto or black beans 
  • Fresh sliced tomato
  • Pineapple salsa of choice
  • Greek yogurt
  • Multigrain tortilla chips (I buy the food should taste good brand) 
  • Green leaf lettuce 
  • Fresh lime 
  • Optional: onion, cilantro

Instructions: 

  1. Brown turkey in skillet and drain excess fat
  2. Add 1/2 frontera taco seasoning and heat for 1 minute.
  3. Chop lettuce into strips and squeeze with fresh lime juice. 
  4. Stack 2 C. lettuce, 1/4 C. Pinto beans, 1/2 C. Seasoned browned turkey, Fresh tomato, 2 Tbsp. pineapple salsa, 5 Multigrain tortilla chips, and 1-2 Tbsp. Greek yogurt in a bowl.

This combo is one of my favorites.  I LOVE how much flavor and volume there is without the heavy calorie count.
