Prep Time: 20 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Yield: 6 servings

Dish Size: 4 Quart





  • 8 ounces lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 ⅓ cups mild salsa
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 6 ounces plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ½ tsp lime zest
  • 12 hard corn taco shells
  • ½ cup low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • avocado, chopped (optional)
  • Green onions, chopped (optional)





  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, cook turkey, breaking up into small pieces. After 2 minutes, add the onion and garlic. Cook until the turkey is no longer pink and the onions are softening, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the beans, salsa, and ¼ teaspoon salt and simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a small temp-tations® bowl, combine the yogurt, lime juice, zest, and remaining salt. Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  5. Arrange taco shells in a 4-quart temp-tations® baker. Bake shells for 5 minutes and remove from oven. Carefully fill each shell with a heaping ¼ cup of filling. Sprinkle tacos with cheese and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and top tacos with lettuce, tomatoes and drizzle with the reserved yogurt sauce. Top with chopped avocado and green onions if desired.
