I didn't have salsa in the fridge or cupboards but I had sour cream. I also did not have nacho or taco chips. I decided to add a cup of cooked brown rice to the turkey mixture in the frying pan as I thought it would add volume to the dish and I also wanted to use the leftover rice. The meal was great.

|Ready to serve.|
2 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 coloured pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground lean turkey
1/2 tsp chill powder (or more to taste)
1 tsp cumin powder
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream or plain yogurt
Heat the olive oil on medium high heat in a non stick frying pan, add the onions, pepper and garlic. Reduce the heat to medium and saute for five minutes. Add the ground turkey and continue to sauté until the turkey is cooked (10 minutes or so). Ensure to break up the pieces of turkey so that you don't have big chunks of meat. Add the chill powder and cumin and salt and pepper. Combine well and cook for another few minutes.
To create individual salads, use a large soup or salad bowl. Layer the bowl with chopped lettuce. Amount is based on how big a salad you want to serve. Add one half to one cup of turkey mixture to each bowl. Top with cucumber, tomatoes, cilantro, salsa. shredded cheese and sour cream based on your preference.
The turkey mixture will serve 4 to 6 people depending on portion sizes.
