- 1 pound lean ground turkey, 93% fat free
- 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute

- 2 tablespoons salsa, medium flavor
- 24 bite-size 100% white corn tortilla chips (1 ounce)

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine ground turkey, egg substitute, seasoning mix, and salsa. Crush tortilla chips into fine crumbs (use a ziplock plastic bag to crush with your fingers). Add crumbs and chopped green pepper to mixture and stir to combine. Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread meat mixture in pan using a spatula to press mixture in evenly. Cook for approximately 30 minutes until loaf springs back when gently touched and edges are slightly browned.
