1½ Starch, ½ Carbohydrate, 1 Vegetable, 3 Lean Meat, 1 Fat

Makes 4 servings

4 (8-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas, at room temperature Cooking spray

3/4 pound lean ground turkey breast

1½ tablespoons no-added salt taco seasoning

1/3 cup water

½ head iceberg lettuce, shredded (about 4 cups)

1 tomato, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

½ cup (1 ounce) reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese

¼ cup reduced-fat

French dressing

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

Place 4 ovenproof soup bowls on a rimmed baking sheet. Coat both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray.

2. Carefully line one tortilla into each bowl. Place another ovenproof bowl on top of each tortilla. Bake 7 to 9 minutes, or until tortillas hold their shape.

Carefully remove top bowls and bake tortillas (still in the bottom bowls) 3 to 4 additional minutes, or until tortillas are crisp and golden. (If you don’t have enough bowls, bake these one or two at a time.) Remove tortillas from bowls and allow to cool on a wire rack.

3. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook turkey breast 8 to 10 minutes, or until no pink remains. Drain off excess liquid. Stir in taco seasoning and water; reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes.

4. Right before serving, place tortilla shells on a dinner plate and fill each 3/4 full with lettuce. Add ½ cup turkey mixture, then sprinkle evenly with tomatoes, green peppers, and cheese. Drizzle 2 tablespoons French dressing on top. Serve immediately.
