  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoon  Taco Seasoning I make homemade see recipe below
  • 1 teaspoon Ancho Chile Pepper
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 3.8 oz. can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1/2 can refined beans
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • A handful of fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 cup sharp shredded cheese
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 3 Tortilla shells gluten-free or 100% whole wheat


  • Start by browning turkey burger. After a few minutes season with taco seasoning and ancho chile pepper.
  • Next add minced garlic, onion, and green bell pepper and cook until turkey burger is thoroughly cooked.
  • Add salsa to skillet and mix well.
  • Coat a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray (I use avocado spray). Lay 3 tortilla shells in the bottom of the dish. You will need to cut one in half to fit.
  • Spread a layer of refined beans onto tortilla shells. Next spread cooked turkey burger mixture over beans.
  • Sprinkle cheese over mixture. Omit for dairy free and FWTFL.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with shredded iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, olives, cilantro.
  • Dollop with refried beans and greek yogurt.


Omit dairy for FWTFL. Omit tortilla shells and beans for Keto.
