FRHS.ORG 11 Makes 4 servings. Ingredients Seasoning marinade 1 / 2 teaspoon chili powder 1 /4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 /4 teaspoon ground cumin 1 /4 teaspoon garlic powder 1 /8 teaspoon finely ground coffee 1 /8 teaspoon ground black pepper Filling 1 / 2 tablespoon canola oil 1 pound turkey cutlets or bone- less turkey breast, cut into ₃ ⁄₄ -inch-by-3-inch pieces 4 taco-size (9-inch) whole-wheat tortillas 1⅓ cups lightly packed baby spinach 1 / 2 cup salsa verde 2 (1 / 2-inch) slices red onion, halved crosswise 12 (1 / 2-inch) strips red bell pepper Directions • In a small bowl, whisk together chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, garlic powder, coffee and black pepper. • Place canola oil and turkey in mixing bowl and add dry seasoning marinade. Using a fork or your hands, mix to coat turkey evenly with marinade. Set aside for 20 to 30 minutes. • Heat medium cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Lay a large sheet of foil on your work surface. One at a time, heat tortillas in dry pan until they are flexible, about 1 minute, turning them after 30 seconds. • Stack tortillas on foil, covering them with an inverted plate until all tortillas are warmed, then seal tortillas in foil, and set them aside. • Heat a grill-pan or stovetop grill over high heat until a drop of water flicked onto it dances. Using tongs, arrange seasoned turkey pieces in rows on grill, placing them 1 / 2-inch apart. This may require cooking turkey in 2 batches. • Grill for 6 minutes, turning pieces every 1 minute so they cook evenly and to avoid burning. Transfer cooked turkey to a serving plate. • To assemble fajitas, place a warm tortilla on a dinner plate, preferably warm. Arrange 1 /4 of spinach in center of tortilla. Add 1 /4 of turkey. Spoon on 1 /4 of salsa, top with half an onion slice and 4 pepper strips. Fold in top and bottom of tortilla, then sides. Serve immediately. Cook turkey to 165 degrees to help prevent foodborne illness. Nutrition information Serving size: 1 fajita.
