This Recipe Serves 8


Cooking spray plus 1 tsp olive oil
1 lb ground turkey (93% lean, sometimes written 93/7)
1 packet taco seasoning mix (1 oz)
1 15-ounce can no added salt petite diced tomatoes
1 15-ounce can fat-free or vegetarian refried beans
8 corn tortillas (about 6” diameter)
2 cups iceburg lettuce, shredded
2 medium tomatoes, diced
¼ cup cilantro, minced
½ cup non-fat Greek style plain yogurt

  1. Add the cooking spray and olive oil to a large sauté pan over high heat.

  4. Simmer for three minutes, then stir in the refried beans until incorporated.
  5. Build the tacos with 1/3 cup of meat and bean mixture and top with lettuce, tomato, a sprinkling of cilantro, 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt and a lime wedge on the side.
