What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) package shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided

  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar picante sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup water
  • Hot Mexican rice (store-bought)

What to Do

  1. Combine 1 cup cheese, 2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix, the cornmeal, egg, and milk. Rub or press cornmeal mixture onto both sides of cutlets. (The cornmeal mixture will be thick like a paste.)

  2. Cook 3 turkey cutlets in 1 tablespoon hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Repeat with remaining cutlets and oil. Remove from skillet.

  3. Combine remaining 1 cup cheese, remaining taco seasoning mix, the picante sauce, chopped cilantro, and 1 cup water in skillet. Place turkey over sauce mixture; cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  4. Serve turkey over Mexican rice, and spoon remaining sauce over turkey. Garnish, if desired, with fresh cilantro sprigs.
