4 (up to 6-ounce) baking potatoes
1 lb. cooked 98% lean ground turkey or soy crumbles
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 fresh garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn (thawed)
1 1/2 cups fresh salsa
1/4 cup (1 ounce) reduced-fat shredded Colby-jack cheese
1. Scrub and pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange in a circle on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at HIGH 10 minutes, turning and rearranging potatoes after 5 minutes.
2. While potatoes cook, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with olive oil. Add cooked ground turkey or soy crumbles, onion and next 3 ingredients; sauté 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add beans, corn and salsa; cook 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
3. Split potatoes lengthwise, cutting into, but not through, other side. Fluff with a fork. Spoon about 1 cup each with Chili mixture and top with (optional) Colby-jack cheese. Serve immediately.
