Recipe of the Week: Ranch Hand Nachos


These nachos are hearty enough to fill up a ranch hand; but they’re good for you too!

 

Preparation time: 40 minutes

Serves: 5

Ingredients:

1 lb. small red potatoes, skins on
3 seconds cooking oil spray
8 oz. extra lean ground turkey breast
½ teaspoon chili powder
2/3 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 medium tomato, diced
¾ cup cucumber, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
¾ cup salsa, mild

Slice potatoes into small circles. Coat them with cooking oil spray for 3 seconds. Bake in the oven at 450°F for 25-30 minutes, depending on desired darkness. Brown ground turkey breast with chili powder in pan over MEDIUM heat for 8-10 minutes. Remove potatoes from the oven and turn off. Place the potatoes on a small oven safe platter or long dish. Top with cheese and turkey, put back in the oven to melt, about 2 minutes. Remove from oven and top with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cilantro, and salsa.
