Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 450 g lean ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 cup bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • half sweet red pepper diced
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 200 g baked tortilla chip (about 8 cups)
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice

Method

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring often, until softened and light golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. 

Stir in turkey; cook, breaking up with spoon, until no liquid remains and turkey is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in strained tomatoes, red pepper and half of the green onions; cook until heated through and thickened, about 5 minutes.

Layer chips and turkey mixture in lightly greased 13- x 9-inch (3L) baking dish; sprinkle with cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and tips of chips are lightly charred, 60 to 90 seconds. Top with remaining green onions, cilantro and lime juice.
