Tex-Mex Chipotle Pitas

Tex-Mex Chipotle Pitas(Adapted from CL)

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeño pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder
1 pound ground turkey breast
1 1/2 cups bottled medium hot salsa
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
4 Whole Wheat Pitas

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and sauté onion, garlic, and jalapeño for 2 minutes. Add sugar, cumin, chili powder, coriander, chipotle, and turkey breast. Cook 5 minutes or until turkey is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in salsa and cook 4 minutes or until slightly thick. Mix in cilantro. Split pitas and evenly distribute the turkey mixture into each half.

  1. These look like a healthier version of the (pan fried) tacos I make with ground turkey. Thanks for the recipe--I will try it!
