Potato Tacos

We just had the best dinner.  So yummy you have to try this one.  The original recipe is from Fitness magazine....although my portion size is a bit bigger than theirs and I didn't use low fat sour cream or cheese.  This should be able to feed two for dinner.

4 potatoes cut into 8 wedges each (I used all purpose potatoes)
extra virgin olive oil
1/2 a 20 oz package of ground turkey (I used 97% lean)
1/3 cup water
taco seasoning (1/2 the packet)
salt & pepper

For the Topping to be assembled in this order:
shredded cheese
sour cream
diced tomato
....and avocado if you like.  I didn't have any but will add next time. 

Preheat your oven at 425.  Placed the wedges potatoes (skin on so be sure to scrub the skin first) on a baking sheet covered with cooking spray.  Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and season with salt and pepper.  Bake for about 25 minutes ...until they are fork tender and golden brown in color).  Meanwhile, saute the ground turkey in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.  Once all the meat is browed, drain out the juices.  Then put the turkey back in the pan and add 1/3 cup of water and half the taco seasoning packet.  Cook until the water has evaporated.   Now it is time to assemple.
Divide the potatoes about two dishes.  Top with the ground turkey, then add the shredded cheese, a dallop of sour cream, diced tomatoes, lettuce and scallions....Voila,  you are ready to eat a delicious dinner!
