Loaded turkey nachos

15 Feb

It was one of those nights I had ground turkey out and no plans for it! I took a look at skinnytaste for some ideas. I came across the nachos and thought why not? Can’t remember the last time I had nachos! Husband thought it was a fabulous idea! The recipe called for black bean dip which I had none of. So I found a recipe! These were pretty good definitely needed tomatoes though which we had none of!


Loaded Nachos with Turkey, Beans and Cheese
adapted fromskinnytaste


baked tortilla chips (enough to cover bottom of cookie sheet)
1 package ground turkey breast
4 tsp cumin
4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
spicy black bean dip (recipe below)
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
light sour cream
fresh cilantro
Sliced jalapeno


Preheat oven to 425°. Place chips on large baking sheet.

Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over high heat. Add turkey. Season with cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper and sauté until cooked through, breaking up meat into small pieces with a wooden spoon. When cooked, add bean dip and mix well.

Spoon the turkey mixture over the chips and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake until cheese melts, about 6 minutes.

Remove the nachos from the oven, top with sour cream, cilantro and jalepeños. Serve immediately.
