Crazy easy turkey breast taco snack/meal

Submitted by: RUGBYMOM7

Introduction

Quick and easy to make -- well, if you have the ingredients on hand. On most Sundays I make a protein -- for example, baking a turkey breast (lower in fat and calories than chicken) -- and use the meat different ways all week -- lowers the temptation to resort to fast food. The Archer Farms Mango Peach salsa is delicious, surprsingly low in sodium and only 5 calories per tablespoon. Quick and easy to make -- well, if you have the ingredients on hand.

Ingredients

    Per taco:
    1 oz roasted turkey breast (no skin), chopped or sliced thinly
    4 grams of lowfat shredded Mexican cheese (skip the cheese and shave off 11 calories )
    1 whole wheat tortilla - Mission brand fajita size is only 80 calories per tortilla
    1 tablespoon Mango Peach salsa -- or any salsa you like, really, but some are really high in sodium

    Add veggies for extra nutrition without a lot more calories.

Directions

Makes 1 snack-sized taco - or turn 2 or 3 into a meal with a great salad.

In a frying pan, gently heat the tortilla, flipping to get both sides warm. Before it gets crisp, add the turkey and cheese (not much cheese, but a little goes a long way!) and fold in half -- let the cheese melt, allowing the taco to toast slightly.

OR heat it in the microwave for 1 minute -- not as tasty (for me) but even easier

Then spoon on a tablespoon of salsa and enjoy.

Make them more fillling and nutritious with any vegetable that suits you -- shredded lettuce, tomato, slices of sweet red bell pepper or even shredded carrots.
