I was inspired to create more Southwestern-flavored foods from our travels there. This is a great way to use leftover chips and salsa. You can substitute chicken cutlets for the turkey if you like. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-3/4 cups crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 package (17.6 ounces) turkey breast cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo
  • Optional: Sour cream and chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the first 5 ingredients. Place crushed chips in another shallow bowl. Dip cutlets in egg mixture, then in chips, pressing to help adhere.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. In batches, cook cutlets until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Serve with pico de gallo and, if desired, sour cream and cilantro.
