By: Meghan McGarry


1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 pound of ground turkey
salt of
pepper of
2 teaspoons of chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of cumin
1/2 teaspoon of oregano dried
1 medium of bell pepper diced
1 medium of red onion diced, divided
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 cup of salsa
1/2 cup of low sodium chicken stock
3 hearts of romaine lettuce
1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese for topping
1 avocado diced for topping


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add ground turkey and cook for 5-6 minutes, making sure to break up the meat as it cooks.
  2. Add diced pepper, onion (reserving 2 tablespoons for garnish), garlic, salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin and oregano, and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes, until pepper and onion are softened.
  3. Stir in salsa and chicken broth. Turn heat down to medium-low and simmer for about 8-10 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and all the flavors come together. Remove from the heat and cover with lid so filling stays warm while prepping the lettuce and toppings.
  4. To serve, stack two lettuce leaves together and spoon in taco filling. Top with shredded cheese, avocado, tomato, and red onion.
