  • 1½ pounds bone-in, skinless turkey breast
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1½ cups pico de gallo
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 ounces multigrain baked tortilla chips
  • 2 ounces queso fresco (fresh Mexican cheese), crumbled (about ½ cup)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Season the turkey with the pepper, and place in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add the lime juice, chili powder, cumin, honey, garlic, 1 cup of the pico de gallo, and ¼ cup of the cilantro. Cover and cook on LOW until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast and not touching the bone registers 165°F, 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Turn the slow cooker to WARM. Using 2 forks, shred the turkey in the slow cooker; discard the bones. Arrange the tortilla chips on a serving platter. Sprinkle the turkey mixture evenly over the tortilla chips using a slotted spoon. Top with the cheese and remaining ½ cup pico de gallo and ¼ cup cilantro.
