Lighten up this Mexican-inspired dish by using ground turkey instead of beef. With the veggies and loads of spices you get big flavor with less calories. Topping it with Bacon & Cheddar Chipotle Flavored Mashed Potatoes makes it reminiscent of a Mexican shepherd’s pie and adds that one little last kick of spice.
