Ingredients

  • 1 serving Tortilla Chips
  • 1.5-oz. 99% Lean Turkey Breast
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 cup Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/2 serving of reduced fat Mexican Cheese
  • 2 tbsp. Pico de Gallo Salsa
  • 1 tbsp. Sour Cream
  • 1/3 cup fresh Cilantro

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. Place chips on an oven-proof dish. As the oven warms, heat a large nonstick sauté pan over high heat. Add turkey, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper and sauté until cooked through, breaking up meat into small pieces with a wooden spoon. When cooked, add beans and mix well. Spoon the mixture over the chips and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake until the cheese melts, about 6 minutes. Remove the nachos from the oven, top with Pico de Gallo, sour cream, cilantro and hot sauce if desired. Serve immediately.
