    sodium is way too high for a single serving - do not use the packet of taco seasoning. Use some cumin, crushed red pepper flakes, cliantro and chili powder - great flavor - no added salt. - 11/6/08

    Looks like a great recipe idea - I think I agree with the black beans, throw a couple tablespoons of yellow corn and diced bell pepper and you have a true "sante fe" turkey taco salad treat!!! - 8/30/08

    Wash the beans before using them, takes a lot of the sodium out of the recipe! - 8/30/08

    I see people rating this "bad" due to sodium content....but is that a fair rating? How does this TASTE?? - 4/20/10

    I make this but without the beans and the taco seasoning, I just use more salsa. I usually eat 10 cups of Romaine, 10 oz of turkey, 2 oz of spicy blue corn chips, 2 oz of 2% cheese and 14 tbsp of salsa. Mix everything but meat, cook meat then add last usually on top of the salsa and mix it in. - 11/21/08

    I used ff cheese, the lowest sod chips I could find. I also subituted my own sauce. Lemon Juice, chili powder,chili peppers and tad low sod soy to make my own chili sauce it was great w/ a dab of ff sour cream. First time I have ever enjoyed ground turkey. Also good on top of a small baked potatoe. - 3/21/09

    I make my own taco seasoning and keep it in an empty spice jar, way less sodium. Look for seasoning recipes on the web. Salad sounds good but I agree, too much sodium. - 4/20/10

    add some chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder or fresh garlic, even better, to the turkey when you're browning it, gives it really awesome flavor. - 11/7/08

    This was wonderful. I made it with the suggestions for the seasonings instead of using taco seasoning (too much salt for us), but it was soooo good. - 11/14/08

    I have been using ground Turkey and Boca Crumbles for a few years instead of regular hamburg meat. I also use the low sodium Taco seasoning mix. - 11/7/08

    Sounds delicious. However, I would add Salt-Free Tortilla chips instead of the regular ones to lower the overall sodium content of this yummy recipe for us folks that are counting our sodium intake. Ole!
