Southwest Tortilla-Turkey Skillet Recipe

"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!”

"This was amazing. Instead of cooking the tortilla bits in we just wrapped it up in them and it was incredible!"
