3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Not all ground poultry is as healthy as one may think. Ground turkey or chicken often includes the skin and dark meat, adding a lot of fat and calories. Look for lean or breast on the label to ensure it includes only breast meat, which is much leaner.
