Lauren Wyler’s Winning Recipe:
Greek Style Baked Turkey Taquitos with Tzatziki Drizzle
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 20 oz. package lean ground turkey (85% lean)
1 shallot, minced
4 tsp. Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Pork & Poultry Rub
½ cup diced sun-dried tomatoes
2 cups low fat shredded Monterey jack cheese
15 flour tortillas
For the Tzatziki drizzle:
1 5.3 oz. container plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 shallot, minced
½ cup shredded cucumber
½ tsp. dried dill
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Pork & Poultry Rub
5 cups shredded lettuce or salad greens
2/3 cup diced tomato
1/3 cup sliced Kalamata olives
Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a large cookie sheet with olive oil cooking spray. In a large skillet, add the oil, turkey, shallot and Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Pork & Poultry Rub and cook over medium high heat until the meat is browned and cooked through. Set the meat mixture aside to cool. Once the meat has cooled, combine in a large mixing bowl with the diced sun- dried tomatoes and shredded Monterey jack cheese. Place about 1/3 cup of filling in the middle of each tortilla and roll them up tightly. Place them seam side down on the cookie sheet. Once all the taquitos are rolled, spray the tops with the olive oil cooking spray and place in the oven for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip the taquitos over, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until crisp and browned.
While the taquitos are baking, make the Tzatziki drizzle. In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt, minced shallot, shredded cucumber, dill, salt, and Healthy Solutions Spice Blends Pork & Poultry Rub.
Serve over shredded lettuce or salad greens. Top with diced tomatoes and olives. Drizzle the Tzatziki sauce or serve as a dip on the side.
