  1. Make the tortilla strips. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Cut the wraps into 2cm-wide strips, then arrange the strips in a single layer on a large baking tray. Mist all over with cooking spray, then season to taste and bake for 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through, until crisp and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the turkey. Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and set over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the turkey mince and cook for 3-4 minutes, breaking up any lumps with a spoon. Add the spices and chipotle paste, season to taste and continue to cook for a further minute, then add 50ml water and simmer for 10 minutes until the turkey is completely cooked through and the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soured cream, garlic and lime juice. Season to taste.
  4. Arrange the lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and avocado in bowls. Top with the turkey, drizzle with the dressing and serve with the tortilla strips and lime wedges on the side.


This is a great cook-ahead idea for lunch. Make it on Sunday night and pack into containers for the next day’s lunch for school or work. Wrap the tortilla strips separately to keep them crisp.
