Directions

Heat the oil in medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the zucchini, the salsa, and a couple tablespoons of water. Cover, cook for 5 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Transfer the vegetable mixture to a bowl with a spoon.

Squish the sausage meat from its casing into the same skillet. (Discard the casings.) Break the meat up with a wooden spoon. Cook the meat over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until it loses its color. Add the meat to the vegetables. Add the cheese and stir. Set aside.

Cut avocado in half. Using a spoon, scrape the avocado from the skin into another bowl. Smash the avocado with a fork and season with salt and pepper.

Wrap the tortillas in moist paper towels. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute or until warm. Lay out the tortillas and divide the turkey mixture evenly on top. Top with lettuce and avocado, fold the tortillas over and serve with salsa.
