1 pound potatoes, skins on
2 teaspoons vegetable oil or cooking spray
8 ounces lean ground turkey (15% fat or less)
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, diced
¾ cup peeled and diced cucumber
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
¾ cup salsa
- Wash hands with soap and water.
- Slice potatoes into small circles about 1/4 inch thick.
- Lightly coat the potato slices with oil (or spray for 3 seconds with cooking spray).
- Arrange slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in the oven at 450 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, depending on desired darkness.
- Meanwhile, add ground turkey and chili powder to a skillet. Cook, stirring over medium heat (300 degrees F in an electric skillet) for 8 to10 minutes or until turkey browns.
- Remove potatoes from the oven.
- Transfer baked potatoes to an oven-safe dish. Top with turkey and sprinkle with cheese. Put back in the oven to melt the cheese, about 2 minutes.
- Remove from oven and top with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cilantro and salsa.
- Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
- No ground turkey? Use beans, scrambled tofu or any ground meat or poultry.
- Try other toppings, such as guacamole or reduced-fat sour cream or plain yogurt.
Great! I am definitely going to make this again! Next time I am going to add some garlic powder to the trukey.
How very original. I've never thought to make nachos with potatoes.
These were great and a hit with my family. I would suggest watching the potatoes carefully so they do not burn. Using a mandoline really speeds the process of getting the potatoes sliced quickly, and thinly.
These are delicious! The whole family loved them. I added cumin and garlic powder to the turkey, but everything else was great. I love that they have so many fresh veggies as toppings. It was a huge hit with the family!
