Dietitian's Tip: 

You’ll never miss the salt when there are other great spices to take its place! Herbs and spices are a great way to add flavor without overdoing it on the salt. Using cheese as a topping at the end creates both flavor and texture, but you don’t need a lot! Make sure to measure and divide ½ cup cheese among the 4 bowls. 

Ingredients: 

• 1/2 pound turkey breast
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1 clove Garlic, crushed
• 3/4 teaspoon fresh chile pepper, or dried to taste
• 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
• 1/2 large yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
• 1/2 large green pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
• 1 medium tomato, cut into 12 wedges
• 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese for topping
• 4- 8” corn tortillas or Make your own tostada bowls
• 4 tablespoons salsa for topping 

Preparation: 

Cut turkey into thin slices and then into strips about 3/4 inch wide. In medium bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the oil with the lemon juice, garlic, fresh Chile pepper and oregano. Add turkey and stir to coat. Let marinate for 1/2 hour.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add yellow and green peppers, stir fry 2 minutes. Add turkey strips and stir fry another 3 minutes. Stir in tomato and heat.

Warm tortillas in a skillet and use as a base. Fill the tortilla or tostada bowl and top with cheese and salsa.
