Southwest Tortilla-Turkey Skillet
"I wanted to cut back on red meat, but my husband thinks ground turkey can be dry,” says Lindsay Ludden of Omaha, Nebraska. “I think the taco seasoning and jalapeno juice in this recipe give the turkey added flavor and moistness…and he agrees!”

- 1/2 pound ground turkey
- 3/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
