My Favorite Lunches :) First installment...

I love to eat!!!! Even when I am dieting for a show, I do everything I can to make my food taste yummy :) Here is one lunch that I LOVE that is easy to prep and tastes great!!!

Layered Taco- serves 2-3
What you need:
1/2 ground turkey breast

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp Mrs Dash spicy blend

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried cilantro

1/4 tsp black pepper

6 corn tortillas

1 can black beans (low sodium)

1 cup salsa (low sodium or fresh)

1 red bell pepper (sliced)

1 yellow bell pepper (sliced)

2 Tbsp reduced fat cheddar cheese (to sprinkle on top)

What you do:
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the bell peppers, put them aside. Spray medium pan w/PAM or non-fat cooking spray. Brown ground turkey in pan on medium heat and add in ALL spices listed while you brown the ground turkey. Add the sliced bell peppers to the pan and sautee for at least 5 more min until peppers and turkey are cooked through. Put pan aside.

Get out a small baking dish (square or rectangle or circle is cool) and spray with PAM. Layer (in this order) 2 corn tortillas (side by side), 2 spoonfuls of black beans (spread out over the tortillas), 1/3 of turkey and peppers mixture and 1 layer of salsa. Repeat the layers 2 more times. Add the cheese on the very top :) Put the whole dish in the oven for about 15 min or until everything is hot and bubbly!!! ENJOY!
