Unique Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. Extra-virgin avocado oil
  • 2 vibrant bell peppers, finely diced
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 lb. High-quality ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. Ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp. Ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. Chipotle powder
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly cracked rainbow peppercorns
  • 8 artisanal corn tortillas
  • 1 c. A blend of sharp cheddar and creamy monterey jack
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced for a burst of freshness
  • A dollop of Greek yogurt, for a creamy twist
  • Handful of zesty mango salsa, for a tropical kick

Step-by-Step Culinary Symphony:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°. In a capacious skillet over medium heat, dance the avocado oil with diced bell peppers and onions until they waltz into tenderness (about 5 minutes). Set this vibrant duo aside.
  2. In the same skillet, let the ground turkey pirouette until it sheds its pink hue (about 5 minutes). Drain any excess fat and sprinkle in the ancho chili powder, ground coriander, chipotle powder, salt, and pepper. Let the spices harmonize with the meat.
  3. On a half sheet, arrange 6 corn tortillas around the edges, allowing half to gracefully drape over. Crown the center with another tortilla for a complete canvas. Now, layer on the seasoned ground turkey, sautéed bell peppers and onions, the artisanal cheese blend, and green onions.
  4. Grace the assembly with one more tortilla at the zenith, then elegantly fold each tortilla towards the center. Seal this culinary masterpiece with another baking sheet on top (think of it as the chef’s kiss!) and bake until the tortillas attain a delectable crispness (approximately 20 minutes). Uncover the pan and continue baking until golden perfection graces the tortillas (about 15 minutes more).
  5. Behold the grand finale! Slice your creation into rectangles and present it warm to your eager audience. A dollop of Greek yogurt and a flourish of zesty mango salsa complete this culinary opus.
