  Ease of Preparation: Easy

 1/2 cup prepared salsa 
 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream 
 1/2 teaspoon canola oil 
 1 small onion, chopped 
 2 cloves garlic, minced 
 8 ounces lean ground turkey 
 1 large plum tomato, diced 
 1/2 cup canned low sodium kidney beans, rinsed
 1 teaspoon ground cumin 
 1 teaspoon chili powder 
 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 
 4 cups shredded romaine lettuce 
 1/4 cup shredded sharp low fat Cheddar cheese


1. Combine salsa and sour cream in a large bowl.

2. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add beef (or turkey) and cook, stirring often, until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Add tomato, beans, cumin, chili powder and salt; cook, stirring, until the tomato begins to break down, about 2 minutes.
