  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup whole-grain tortilla chips broken
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese reduced-fat, shredded
  • 3 cups romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 cup salsa no sugar added

Creamy Salsa Dressing (optional)

  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt plain
  • 2 tablespoons avocado ripe, mashed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 cup salsa


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the turkey. Cook until turkey is no longer pink and cooked through. Add spices, stir to combine and transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  • To make the salad, divide the tortilla chips between six jars. Layer each with the salsa, turkey mixture, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese.
  • Make the optional dressing by blending the yogurt, avocado, lime juice, and salsa in a blender. Blend until creamy and smooth. Top the salad with the dressing, seal the jars, and store in the fridge until ready to eat. Eat within 1-2 days for the best results.
