Kids seem to love helping make this quick-and-easy Turkey Taco Pie, because they can get in on the action, too. Cooking with kids is a great way to enjoy quality family time - and that's half the reward of preparing healthy meals.

What You'll Need

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin (see note)
  • 1 (16-ounce) can vegetarian refried beans (see note)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded real Cheddar cheese

What to Do

  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray (see note); heat over medium-high heat. Add the turkey breast and ground cumin, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the turkey is no longer pink, stirring to break up the turkey. 
  2. Stir in the refried beans and salsa, reducing the heat to low. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until well combined and heated through, stirring frequently. Remove the skillet from the heat, scrape down the sides with a spatula, and spread the mixture evenly in the skillet.
  3. Arrange the lettuce, tomato, and Cheddar cheese in concentric circles on top of the turkey mixture; serve immediately.



*To make this a gluten-free recipe, use seasoning with no added starch from a gluten-containing source, gluten-free refried beans, and nonstick cooking spray with no flour added.

Our whole family loves this meal! Even our picky 1 year old. We've tried pre-season taco meat before, but it's much better to follow the recipe with cumin. I use Great Value fire roasted salsa in a can and I use shredded cabbage instead of lettuce. I also top with chopped white onion. We call it Turkey Taco Surprise!

Stir in the refried beans and salsa bring to a boil. How do you bring refried beans and salsa to a boil? I have NEVER seen either with enough liquid to boil!

Hi there! That was definitely an interesting instruction. We've updated the recipe with proper steps. Thank you for pointing that out to us, and we hope you enjoy this delicious recipe!

I am a new type 2 diabetic and am struggling to find recopies my whole family would like. This was a huge hit, even for the very picky 5 year old! This will be made again for sure!

I am a diabetic type ll. This recipe is the best yet. My husband doesn't care for ground turkey, but he fell in love with this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
