    1 1/2 lb lean ground turkey
    3/4 cup crushed baked corn tortilla chips (about 2 1/2 ounces)

Preheat oven to 375*F.

    Interesting recipe - my husband loved it. I made it a few less calories by substituting 5 Saltines and 16 crushed reduced fat wheat thins in lieu of the chips. It's less than the 3/4 of a cup but came out fine and moist - less calories and fat. - 3/20/08

    AHHHHHH we loved this!! I regularly make turkey meatloaf, so this was a nice way to switch it up. I added finely diced onion and served with homemade unfried "refried" beans over spinach. This'll make the rotation - 4/22/09

    I made this and it was delicious. My only complaint is that it didn't hold together well. I made it using 20 oz of Jennie O turkey (less than recipe called for) and used 1.5 Mission Whole Grain tortillas. Big hit with family. Any suggestions. - 1/21/08
