Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a medium baking dish with cooking spray. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and sauté the onion, green pepper, and garlic 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. In a small bowl, mix the salsa and 1/2 the corn. In a large bowl, mix the onion mixture with the turkey, taco seasoning, and 2 Tbs. of the salsa mixture. Divide into 6 patties, and press into the breadcrumbs to lightly coat on all sides. Arrange coated patties in the prepared baking dish. Bake the patties 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Drain any liquid from the dish, turn patties, and spread with the remaining salsa mixture. Continue baking 10 minutes, to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Warm the tortillas in the microwave, about 30 seconds on High. Wrap the cooked turkey patties in the warmed tortillas with sour cream and lettuce. Sprinkle with remaining corn to serve.

  • This sounds good, but is not low-carb by any means. Corn and bread crumbs are high carb not to mention the sugar. Flour tortillas are also high. [ low-carb, whole wheat would be a better choice.
