Recipe: Eat Well 101


  • 250g shredded turkey
  • 1½ tsp Mexican seasoning
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 170g lightly salted tortilla chips
  • 200g homemade tomato salsa
  • 150g cheddar grated
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 150g soured cream
  • 50g pickled jalapeños


  • Heat the oven to 200C. Combine the turkey and Mexican seasoning and cook until done. Add lime juice, then set aside. Arrange half the tortilla chips over a large baking tray in a single, even layer.

  • Spoon over half the turkey mixture, half the salsa, half the cheese and half the spring onions. Top with the remaining tortilla chips, then repeat with the rest of the turkey mixture, salsa, cheese and spring onions. Bake for 15-20 mins until the cheese has melted and everything is warmed through. Spoon over the soured cream and jalapeños before serving.

Chef’s Tip: For next level soured cream topping, combine into a Crema combination (soured cream, mayonnaise, ancho or chipotle chilli flakes and lime juice). Why not add guacamole too?
