Serving Size:
1 cup


  • 1 pound small red potatoes, skins on
  • 2 teaspoons oil or cooking spray
  • 8 ounces lean ground turkey (15% fat)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1⁄2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup lettuce, shredded
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 3⁄4 cup cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 3⁄4 cup salsa


Slice potatoes into small circles about 1/4 inch thick.
Lightly coat the potato slices with oil (or spray for 3 seconds with cooking spray).
Arrange slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the oven at 450 degrees for 25-30 minutes, depending on desired darkness.
Meanwhile, add ground turkey and chili powder to a skillet. Cook, stirring over medium heat (300 in an electric skillet) for 8-10 minutes or until turkey browns.
Remove potatoes from the oven.
Transfer baked potatoes to a casserole dish or an oven-safe dish. Top with turkey and sprinkle with cheese. Put back in the oven to melt the cheese, about 2 minutes.
Remove from oven and top with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cilantro, and salsa.
Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
