Ingredients
12 ounces PERDUE® Fresh Lean Ground Turkey (1 lb.)
1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium salsa
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
12 corn taco shells
4 cups iceberg lettuce, finely shredded
1 1/2 cups scallions, sliced
1 1/2 cups reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
Instructions
1 In a saucepan, combine ground turkey, salsa, water and chili powder and mix well. Bring to a simmer, approximately 2 minutes. Keep warm.

TIP: Variations: Breakfast Tacos: Fill taco shells with scrambled eggs and top with turkey mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Greek Tacos: Substitute oregano for chili powder and chopped tomatoes for salsa. Serve over pita chips with crumbled feta cheese, olives, onions, cucumbers and Greek yogurt. Taco Salad: Use turkey filling on top of a shredded green salad with cucumber slices, avocado chunks, tomato wedges and shredded cheese. Nacho chips on side if desired.
2 Layer each taco shell each with 1/3 cup lettuce, 1/3 cup hot turkey mixture, 2 tablespoons scallions, and 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese.
