Crunchy, meaty and cheesy. This Crunchy Turkey Taco Wrap will satisfy your Mexican food cravings while keeping you on track towards your weight loss goals.

If you’re on a diet, you can still enjoy tacos on Tuesday with our healthy taco wrap! In our diet-friendly take on this Mexican classic, ground turkey takes the stage as the protein, while reduced fat sour cream and Mexican cheese add creaminess. A crunchy tostada creates a surprise texture in the center of the wrap. This terrific taco is sure to please everyone in your family!

To make this crunchy creation, cook your ground turkey meat in a skillet at medium-high heat until it is fully cooked. Season the meat with cumin, garlic and chili powder. Assemble your taco wrap by laying a whole wheat tortilla on a flat surface. Spoon the taco meat into the center, then top with a crunchy tostada shell. Spread sour cream on the shell and top with lettuce, tomato and cheese. Fold your wrap by taking the bottom of the tortilla and folding the edge up to the center of the filling. Continue wrapping around the tortilla. Place your wrap in a skillet prepped with cooking spray. Cook it on medium heat for two to three minutes per side, or until it’s golden brown. Serve immediately with fresh salsa and cilantro.
