TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 package (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese

  • 6 whole wheat flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • Salsa and sour cream, optional


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook turkey, onion and peppers over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink, breaking up turkey into crumbles. Stir in cream cheese and chili powder.
