Ingredients

  • 4 oz baked tortilla chips
  • 8 oz ground turkey breast
  • 3/4 cup spicy black bean dip
  • 1 cup Mexican-style 4-cheese blend
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2/3 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup chopped cilantro

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 ° F. Line a baking sheet with foil, and spread the tortilla chips out on the prepared sheet. Heat a large non-stick saute pan over high heat. When the pan is hot, add the turkey and cook it until it is just cooked through, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir the bean dip into the turkey, and season it with salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon the turkey mixture over the chips, and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake for 6 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and top the chips with the salsa. Drop small spoonfuls of the yogurt on top of the nachos (or serve the yogurt on the side if preferred) and scatter the cilantro on top. Serve immediately.
