Jessica Corwin MPH RDN says:
Watching your salt intake? Choose a plain ground turkey breast, rather than a seasoned variety. As "seasoned" is a marketing term that usually indicates added sodium.
Jessica Corwin MPH RDN says:
When selecting your ground turkey, be sure that it reads "turkey breast". This simple term indicates a much leaner cut. From here you can pick a lean or very lean choice.

Step 1:

Put on rubber gloves before handling pepper as the oils can burn the skin or irritate the eyes if accidentally rubbed. Chop jalapeno very finely with a sharp knife.

Step 2:

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute jalapeno until it softens (approximately 3 minutes).

Step 3:

In the same skillet, add the turkey meat and brown for 5 minutes. Stir in salsa and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 4:

Slice tomatoes into 1/4 inch pieces. Shred lettuce and cilantro with kitchen shears.

Step 5:

Spoon the meat mixture evenly into the 6 tortilla bowls. Layer the cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and cilantro on top of each taco. Drizzle Ranch dressing over the top. Remove from muffin tin and serve.
